Fashionable and safe, ventless fireplaces are the next big technology for your home. The modern designs are turning these fireplaces from mere heat sources to works of art. With internal tanks or other fuel reserves, this replaces the need for traditional gas lines so fireplaces can stand alone in any part of your home.

Since these pieces use ethanol, they burn without smoke and can be mounted on walls or inserted into surfaces. Plus with high-tech safety features that shut these devices off you won’t have to worry about them damaging your home.

Here are a few of the latest designs in ventless fireplaces from the Wall Street Journal:
