I like a fireplace located high on a wall. it can be appreciated from more vantage points around the room and from other rooms. This is a really good idea for a fireplace in a dining room where it still can be seen after people have been seated.
Dana Barnes has a serious felt obsession. Her bed is covered with a felted blanket. The embossed felt rug was made by molding wet wool over bowls and other circular shapes. (Photo: Bruce Buck for The New York Times)
