Six years ago today the Modfire fireplace shifted from an interesting idea to an actual working prototype. Vision became real. A tangible form crafted in steel. My heart raced as I sanded the last seam. I didn't know what this would all become, just that I satisfied my soul in the act of doing. Loving the process, feeling the metal bend to my will. In that moment, this iconic shape would define the Modfire aesthetic and launch a company that would change the idea of what a fireplace could be. I wouldn't have gotten very far had it not been for that guy next to me, Martin Young, my founding business partner. His brilliance brought all the other aspects of the company together and help launch a Wildfire. I'm so grateful that Modfire company has grown and evolved over those six years with spectacular new designs while maintaining the quality that only comes from hand crafting each piece. Today I'm celebrating the American dream, a place where you can still take an idea, make it your own and turn it into something special. Thank you to all of my fans and supporters for loving Modfire as much a I do.
We packed the truck, hitched the Airstream and made our yearly trek to the desert to help celebrate the modern spirit at Palm Spring's Modernism Week.
This year we had a great booth space at The Camp and the folks running the show asked us if we could supply some fireplaces for the main schmoozing area, to which we excitedly obliged.
The fireplaces ended up being a great addition to the space since the desert has some chilly nights in the winter. All in all it was a blast and another very successful Modernism Week. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello.
See you all next year!
We are pleased to announce the launch of our shiny new website!
The store is finally set up and is ready to take orders, so shop away!
More to come so stay tuned!
