Many can agree that nothing beats a cold night with a warm beverage sitting by a fireplace surrounded by loved ones. Here, BUILDER highlights six fireplaces from this year’s Builder’s Choice Design Award winners that would be perfect to cozy up to after those upcoming holiday meals.

From the more traditional white brick fireplace in the Project of the Year to the petite wood stoves in Napeague and Woodhouse, check out the following living spaces in these award-winning projects and mark your calendars for early March for the 2022 edition of the annual residential design awards program.
