Although you may associate stone fireplace ideas with very traditional and grand houses, or with ski lodges surrounded by snowy peaks, don't discount them if it is a more contemporary look you are after — they can work equally well. 

The good news for anyone after fireplace ideas is that there is definitely no shortage of them out there. From elegant and refined to those that are designed to shout loudly from a design perspective in the room they grace.
