(b)logs for the Fire: Part 1

Part of what makes The Phillips Collection unique is that the art on the walls is always rotating. But it is also important to note that some of the residents of the collection do have permanent homes. So permanent, in fact, that they were built right into the walls. Many visitors are perhaps familiar with the ornate and beautiful detailing of the Music Room fire place, but sprinkled throughout the gallery are several others—each with their own unique details, styles, and character. Here a just a few examples of what can emerge if you look closer.

baby detail

This little guy is a permanent resident of the West Parlor. What have those little baby eyes seen through the years?

fleur de lis detail

The repeating fleur de lis-style pattern on these bricks lies underneath a glassy, cracked glaze. From certain angles, you can barely make out the design at all.

Swirl detail

Hidden swirls and circles everywhere! This fireplace has a decorative wrought-iron detail and a textured fireplace interior wall.

Check back tomorrow for more fireplace details.

  1. I have purchased my fireplace kit and some outdoor furniture from wall fire place pros and was astonish on how many compliments I get regarding my fireplace. I love it! It’s remote control and easy to maintain it’s as easy as turn on and turn off with the look of real firewood, and the coals burning on the bottom. It was worth every penny I spent with a quality of products and services. Both my relatives during the holidays ask for outdoor elegance number to do the exact same thing overall great company, with a great community reputation. Five stars!!! http://www.wallfireplacepros.com.
