I searched the internet for fireplaces. Just to give you some ideas. How many ways can you do a fireplace? Well, look at these...

This one is so unique but I've lived with woodstoves and fireplaces in the past and I know that keeping that glass chimney clean is impossible so I really don't think it's very practical.

Having the wood boxes on either side of the fireplace seems convenient but keep in mind, wood comes from the outside and there are a lot of critters - snakes, spiders, roaches, etc. - that can come in with the wood, not counting the dirt and debris. So I never liked having wood inside the house.
