We recently received a press release about a project that will surely appeal to all of you out there keen on technology. Gas fireplace manufacturer Escea has just launched their new range of gas fireplaces, which feature a world first: inbuilt WiFi connectivity, and the ability to control your fireplace from your iPhone or Android smart phone. According to the information we were sent, “Escea gas fireplaces are synonymous with minimalist modern sophisticated style and design. This range of Indoor and outdoor fireplaces has proved popular with architects and interior designers, so If you’re renovating or are planning a new house you should consider Escea for your gas fireplace. Escea fireplaces come in a variety of heat outputs, various modern fascia designs, and a variety of fuel effects including black and white coals, New Zealand River Rock and Logs, stones and driftwood. These gas fireplaces are available in both natural gas and LPG (Propane)“”. Be sure to check out the video below for a better understanding of how the project works. How do you find this idea?
It’s no surprise that our friends Down Under know how to get low when it comes to their living rooms. Designed by Georgia Ezra of G. A.B. B. E. Studio, the cool and contemporary Brighton Escape home is made a bit more comfy thanks to a dropped seating area lined with the same wood that accents the ceiling, walls and stairs. Located in Merida, Mexico, Casa Sisal‘s vast great room boasts a recessed sitting area that emphasizes its modern splendor by creating a symmetry with the home’s 3-sided infinity edge swimming pool.The best part? This opulent 2-bedroom home is available for rent for a mere $299 a night so that you can snuggle up there yourself.
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
