The Calming Effect of Fire

Love sitting by a crackling fire? No surprise. Research confirms what most of us have long known – that  just the simple act of watching a fire evokes a relaxation response. In a recent study, researchers at the University of Alabama hypothesized that when we’re sitting fireside, all of our senses become absorbed in the experience. And when we have a calming focus of attention, it helps to reduce anxiety.  “During the Stone Age, humans likely socialized around camp fires, a place where they felt safe and warm,” they say. 

And today, perhaps more than ever, we love the peace and quiet of a beautiful fire. Whether its gas, wood, or pellet; traditional, modern, or rustic, a fire always puts us at ease, and always says “home.” 

Here’s just a sampling of some of the beautiful fireplaces at our Warwick showroom. Come on in and say hello. We’d love to show you around and see how we can help you build some new memories by the fire.
