Spanish revival outdoor fireplace

I’ve been meaning to post this fireplace for some time now. I found it on one of my favorite tile suppliers’ website, so I don’t know the designer, but the tile is by Tierra y Fuego.  I love the creative shape of this fireplace, and that you can sit on the hearth, and that the tile design manages to bring the scale of the whole thing back down to human proportions.  Whoever the designer is, they are good!

I also like the succulents in the planter pots that flank the fireplace. If you chose to use the orange one, Euphorbia ‘Sticks on Fire’, just remember that the sap is caustic and wear gloves if you ever trim it.
