Decorators know that designing a room around a focal point adds immediate interest and defines the character of the room. A free-standing fireplace, an elaborate bar or a curio cabinet with interior lighting to highlight a collection can become the focal point and add high visual impact. A game table in the entertainment space can become a focal point, just as an executive desk is the attention-grabber in a home office and a china cabinet commands attention in a dining room.
What could be better than a leisurely card game with friends in front of the fireplace on a chilly evening? Today's freestanding electric fireplaces make it easy to add a luxurious touch to your main living space.
