Although Vision is a hole-in-the-wall-style gas fireplace, it offers minimalist design on a grand scale. Designed in England but distributed in this country by Melrose, Mass.–based European Home, the B-vent unit has a Modern sensibility. Instead of louvers or logs, it uses ceramic stones as its flame medium. Measuring 28 inches wide, 18 inches high, and 16 inches deep, it comes with a remote control and optional stainless steel or cast stone surrounds. European Home, 781.662.1110; www.europeanhome.com.
