Now that we're heading into winter, our thoughts naturally turn to those cozy nights spent in front of a crackling flame. We've got our s'mores kit, poker, shovel, and brush, but no fireplace tool set is complete without a pair of fireplace andirons. And although these clever pieces of decor — that allow the air to circulate, and the fire to grow — have been around since Medieval times, andirons are having a chic resurgence thanks to modern designs, sleek finishes, and perhaps the Starz series Outlander. (You can read their whole history here.) In honor of this traditional throwback, here are eight of our faves that will warm your heart and your home, too.
The minimalist design and burnished brass finish of these andirons will certainly add stylish flair to your fireplace. The hand welded iron and steel guarantees that this duo is strong and substantial enough to hold any number of logs your little heart desires.
Who says your fireplace can't go glam? These fireplace andirons showcase shimmering hand-cut bronze with blackened iron and steel, which will surely catch an eye or two.
If you have money to burn, treat yourself to these streamlined, stainless steel andirons by German designer Peter Maly. Just think of them as artwork for your fireplace.
