Atlanta Design Studio Unveils Bio-ethanol “Firetable”
by Donald Burlock, Jr., principle designer, PyroBlu Design House
Recent surveys have shown that the number of homeowners optimistic about kicking off improvement projects has significantly increased in the last year. Contractor sales are up, which is a sign that many homeowners are willing to hire outside help for their projects. It appears that more and more homeowners are falling away from the trend of taking on jobs themselves and are feeling financially able to afford the services of professionals. And as the cost of gas and electricity continue to rise, homeowners are looking for eco-friendly, energy conservative alternatives that are fiscally smart. Homeowners are looking for improvement solutions that combine both efficiency and aesthetics.
Enter bio-ethanol fireplaces. No chimney, no problem. These fireplaces capitalize on the beauty and warmth of a safe, inviting flame with a replenishing fuel source. Now, add the coziness of a fireplace to the utility of a coffee table, and you have innovative furnishings that can spruce up any space. The firetables are part of a new collection of unique furnishings designed by the local Atlanta studio Pyroblu Design House.
The collection, entitled “Pharos” by principle designer Donald Burlock, combines natural elements and intelligent design. The firetables are customizable and modular, so they can fit in both traditional and contemporary spaces. Though designed for indoor dwellers that want to bring fire into their homes, the firetable can also be a sustainable option for outdoor enjoyment. Uniquely designed concrete inserts separate the stainless steel burners from natural hardwoods. While the studio is currently offering the firetables as an end product to the market, they are also available for custom installation projects.
So, if you are searching for a savvy way to bring fire into your home, consider the firetables from the Pharos collection: Sleek. Savvy. Smart. Designed with ambience in mind.
PyroBlu Design House is led by Donald Burlock, Jr., an Industrial Design graduate student at the esteemed Georgia Institute of Technology and mechanical engineer who received his initial degree from the prestigious Kettering University.
