New Heat & Glo Paloma Fires Up City Living
Modern fireplace design meets urban dwellers’ demands for stylish hearth products
It’s no secret, today’s hip urban dwellers tend to shun a traditional look and the status quo when it comes to their lifestyle. Instead, they seek clean line designs and modern materials that appeal to their sense of style and sophistication. That’s why Heat & Glo™ developed the new Paloma™ freestanding gas fireplace. One of seven hearth packages in the new Heat & Glo Modern Collection line of high fashion fireplaces, the Paloma embodies a sleek European-design that fits nicely with the modern look of many loft-style and multi-family homes.
The Paloma’s compact footprint and parabolic shape coordinate well with today’s more intimate living settings. It stands almost 41 inches tall and showcases a curved firebox that provide a generous view of the fire at virtually any angle. The Paloma also features a double glass front design in four different tints, allowing a homeowner to complement various interior color schemes. Additionally, homeowners can add a tinted hearth pad to match the tinted glass front. An optional cast stone surround is available offering a commanding finishing alternative and freestanding fireplace look.
“Incorporating style and sophistication into living areas continues to be a major home trend,” says Susan Hilt-Lagos, Brand Manager, Heat & Glo. “The Paloma’s European-design finally gives urban dwellers a modern freestanding fireplace look while also providing the convenience of gas operation and maintenance.”
Gale Steves, one of America's leading decorating and design authorities, believes homeowners seeking a modern look will find the Paloma’s styling and flexibility appealing. “The Heat & Glo Paloma offers homeowners a very distinctive and unique look,” says Steves. “Given its size, I can see it working as a sexy focal point in a bedroom or an inviting focal point in a dining room.”
The Paloma is a 30,000 BTUs input/hour direct vent gas fireplace and uses an Intellifire ignition system to provide greater efficiency. Intellifire is a patented state-of-the-art ignition system that provides a pilot flame only when needed to minimize the gas bill and features a battery back-up system that allows the freestanding fireplace to run during power outage situations.
