With summer behind us and quick dips of cold temperatures reminding us to get out the sweaters, nothing makes the thought of winter more bearable than sitting in front of a roaring fireplace. This is when the Danish concept of “Hygge” comes back into common parlance and we replace the images of warm weather with warm fireplaces. Below, CityRealty compiled a list of eight beautiful fireplaces in lobbies and amenity space that set the tone for the apartments.
