Insider’s Guide to Artisanal Suspended Fireplaces

Discover a curated selection of suspended fireplaces available at Sculpt, each embodying warmth, comfort and innovation.

The fireplace has long been considered the heart of the home, capturing the essence of living spaces as havens for relaxation and togetherness. Among contemporary fireplace designs, the suspended fireplace emerges as a captivating element that harmoniously blends aesthetics with innovation. This style has become a sought-after choice for both designers and homeowners seeking a unique alternative to traditional fireplace designs.

As a leading Australian retailer, Sculpt understands the transformative power of a well-designed fireplace. “At Sculpt, we see fireplaces as architectural elements that enhance the design narrative of a space, creating a balance between form and function,” says the team at Sculpt. “Beyond just heating a space, our fireplaces are about creating moments and elevating everyday living”.

Sculpt’s collection showcases a variety of fireplace designs, each reflecting their dedication to high-quality craftsmanship. Among these offerings, five suspended fireplaces from renowned French brand JC Bordelet, founded by award-winning fireplace designer Jean-Claude Bordelet, stand out: the Eva 922, Zelia 908, Lea 998, Tatiana 997, and Linea 914.

Beyond their striking visual appeal, these suspended fireplaces excel in functionality, providing efficient heating solutions without sacrificing style. Their ability to cast a warm glow and serve as a serene anchor offers a unique opportunity to transform any home into a tranquil retreat. “Each JC Bordelet fireplace is the result of years of artisanal craftsmanship and a relentless pursuit of fireplace excellence,” Sculpt affirms. “The name has become synonymous with unparalleled quality, original designs, audacious colours, and fluidity of shapes”.
