Fire Screens Don’t Have to be Ugly

Lee Najman Interior design, contemporary fire screen

This gorgeous room, as seen in the 2012 Holiday House NYC Catalog, is designed by the talented designer Lee Najman. Lee’s artful mix of classic and contemporary creates a very rich look.  The art below the mantel is almost more impressive than that above, it is a focal point that sets the vibe of the room. Notice that there is a functioning fire screen quietly tucked behind this artistic statement piece, proving that fire places can be stylish without compromising safety. Design dilemma nicely handled, Lee!
