Amidst the glassy lakes and snow-capped mountains of Squamish, BC, artisan furniture company Sticks + Stones Furniture finds their design inspiration.
Led by owner and designer Yves St. Hilaire, Sticks + Stones Furniture creates signature 'fireplaces' crafted from concrete, metal and reclaimed wood.
One signature outdoor piece, called the 'Social Circle', was awarded the 2014 Best Product Design - Outdoor Seating by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
We can see why! This organic sleek firepit is the perfect compliment to a moonlit sky.
For those who prefer a more geometric form, Sticks + Stones Furniture also created 'The Social Series'.
Clean lined and minimalist, it's the perfect contrast to a natural setting.
Sticks + Stone's also offer custom indoor fireplaces, like this understated modern installation.

What could be better than that?
