• Twilight Modern Basking in the Spotlight
    The Twilight Modern is basking in the warmth of the spotlight after receiving top honors at the International Builder Show (IBS) in January. The modern style indoor/outdoor fireplace received the Best of Show Award in the Outdoor Living category. It was chosen by a panel of independent judges made up of building professionals and editors from across the country.

    The awards recognize exhibitors with products that have the best combination of design, functionality and innovation in five categories: Best Home Technology, Best in Outdoor Living, Best Indoor Feature, Best Kitchen or Bath Product, and Overall Best in Show.



    The Twilight Modern is a two-sided gas fireplace that combines two megatrends in homebuilding today; contemporary design and outdoor living. The see-though design provides impressive fireside views from both inside and outside the home, doubling the ambiance and enjoyment from one fireplace. With sleek contemporary styling inside and out, brilliant flames rise through modern media and are reflected on a black porcelain firebox. Because it’s a closed system, the Twilight Modern provides a safe environment for enjoying fires within an arm’s length on outdoor patios, decks or terraces.

    The Twilight Modern uses direct vent technology and innovative engineering to deliver a unique fireside experience—and a powerful 38,000 BTUs. The unit splits the exterior wall of a home and can be installed flush with the inside or outside wall. It’s rated as a fireplace and exterior window and requires no additional flue or vertical venting, keeping costs down for homeowners and simplifying installation for builders.

    Commenting on the award, NAHB Conventions and Meetings Committee Chair Lynn Pratt said, “This year’s International Builders’ Show featured an impressive line-up of more than 900 exhibitors representing all facets of the building industry. The Best of IBS Awards recognize those exhibitors that really stood out in terms of product innovation and design, and we were thrilled to be able to award them for their creativity and vision.”
