Lounge Fire Fireplace Looks Like a Bench—What Could Go Wrong?

Woe to the guest who mistakes your Lounge Fire fireplace for a comfy bench, for hidden in the middle is a flame producing jet. Who green-lit this pyro project, Mr. Magoo?

Even the rendered photos of this fireplace show fictional living spaces where this fireplace is disguised with plants and boxes. The Lounge Fire folks are seriously not hiding the fact that they'd like this invention to join the office floor trapdoor as items most likely to be found in a mastermind's secret castle.

Still, if you're the kind of host who enjoys giving your guests a lasting impression, this $1,621 fireplace comes in a variety of woods, metals and other materials. The third degree burns are, obviously, completely free of charge. [Sendhen via Born Rich]
