Just purchased a house but still manage to have money left over for decorating? Check out this vertical Cyclone fireplace. It's a freestanding wooden fireplace with two tall, vertical glass enclosures with spinning towers of fire inside.
The cylinders lets you have a 360 degree view of the fire, but the whole setup costs quite a bit ($3,799). It's not a great heat source, at 15,000 BTUs, so should only be used as a primary heater in more temperate climates.
