8. Midtown Apartment by Hariri & Hariri

When Hariri & Hariri were reconfiguring this Midtown apartment, they inserted an ethanol-fueled fireplace in a simple stacked-limestone surround with translucent pocket doors on both sides to separate the den from the dining area. A Roy Lichtenstein print hangs on the den’s fireplace surround.

9. Toronto House by MLK Studio and Belzberg Architects

For this West Coast–inspired home in Toronto, MLK Studio and Belzberg Architects created a house that easily flows between indoor and outdoor living spaces. Once the glass doors slide open, a terrace sheltered by an overhang becomes an alfresco extension of the living area.

In the living room, a fireplace is centered between a wooden desk and gray sofa to warm up the French ski cabin after long days on the slopes.
