A surprisingly elegant mixture of country-style structures and unique pieces of furniture make this farmhouse in Pals a singular place. Visitors hosted in the large living room are bound to be drawn to Bubble, the painted carbon steel fireplace by Antrax IT, which is not simply a heating element but a genuine designer item that takes centre stage, capable of enhancing the attractive appearance of any living space.

Bubble is a fireplace with an open combustion chamber, devised to furnish and create the typical atmosphere that only direct contact with flames can offer. Owing to its unusual and original shape, it looks like a metal bubble, hence the name, which ‘hosts’ the fire. Also available in the wall version, Bubble blends in seamlessly with any setting, from country chic to modern city dwellings, playing the starring role even when the fire is out. Antrax IT, with its designer radiators and fireplaces, offers the perfect solution to ‘warm up’ any living or wellness area even in the most sophisticated refurbishment projects.
