Fourteen EcoSmart Fire models are featured in the 2013 New American Home – a stunning show home built each year to coincide with the International Builders Show taking place January 22-24, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. The New American Home has been dubbed a “real-world” laboratory that demonstrates innovative concepts, builder’s best practices, and energy efficiency in home design. When this year’s lead interior designer from Blue Heron Design Build sought warmth without compromising their sustainable initiatives, EcoSmart Fire was an obvious choice. Its clean burning bioethanol fuel results in a carbon neutral fire, which means all the warmth without the soot, smoke, or ash.
Lead Interior Designer, Lyndsay Jannsen, explains, “Fire was incorporated to add interest to the global design. These features increase people’s curiosity and creates a visual focus in different spaces throughout the home both on the inside and out.” EcoSmart Fire models showcased in the home include the Bulb, Stix, Lantern, Mix, and Lighthouse Series from the Outdoor Fireplace Range as well as the Ghost from the Designer Fireplace Range.
The New American Home embraces the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, safety, and universal design. The program’s mission is to show that housing performance can be incorporated into the most simple or most complex homes, and that it’s equally as important as aesthetics. EcoSmart Fire CEO, Alexander Eburne, remarks, “We are honoured to be featured in the 2013 New American Home and it’s our hope that the sustainable design solutions employed in this year’s design raises the bar for builders everywhere.”
Tyler Jones, President of Blue Heron Design Build, chose EcoSmart Fire because of how it complemented the home’s design. He states, “We strive to create a sense of comfort and “home” while maintaining the ultra-clean design aesthetic of our Desert Contemporary Architecture. The warm glow of the fire features adds intimacy and ambiance to the otherwise clean lines of the home.” Floor to ceiling glass pocket doors open up the interior of the house to the exterior and EcoSmart Fire helps to bridge the gap between the two. Whether used indoors or out, the versatility of EcoSmart Fire adds warmth to the New American Home every step of the way.
Registered attendees at the 2013 International Builders Show can tour The New American Home daily during the show via free shuttle buses (ticket required) departing every half hour from the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Effortlessly on trend. XL burners an integral design tool.

But regardless of the name or style, one thing they all have in common is the use of EcoSmart stainless steel XL burners to create an elegant, elongated fire in a tailor-made setting.

Luxury hotels around the world are embracing the versatility and ambiance of EcoSmart Fire to create intimate spaces where guests can kick back and relax in front of the fireplace.
The soaring popularity of the boutique hotel in recent times, driven by demand for more intimate, local accommodation experiences, has had an inevitable impact on the luxury hotel design scene.
No longer is it enough to rely on slick modern interiors as a main drawcard. Instead, comfort and practicality are winning through at the high-end of town with the emergence of engaging social spaces, offering a home away from home. And the warmth and ambiance of a real fireplace is often a key drawcard.
“Top end luxury hotels have realised that there’s a great appeal in designs that keep alive the social, local ideas of the traditional hotel,” says Jenny Price, The Fire Company. “We’re seeing the emergence of a series of spaces that are communal and intimate, formal and informal – and that all incorporate the element of fire.”
