Spark Modern Fires, the award winning designer and manufacturer of modern, clean, and elegant gas fireplaces offers designers several options to create “custom linear firescapes” with a nationally certified and approved burner system.
These include vent free units, direct vent units in different sizes and configurations, and most recently the Linear Burner system – a modular system that comes in different lengths - in both inside and outside versions. All Spark models feature state-of-the-art burners and controls, and all offer environmental, and design advantages over typical wood burning fireplaces.
The options are unprecedented…and the end result is a fire totally custom-fit to the environment; a uniquely sophisticated focal point with a clean, uncluttered look that is completely fresh and modern.
Spark Modern Fires was co-founded in 2005 by Tom Healy, a former custom home builder who for two decades successfully built custom homes in VA and Washington, D.C. As a custom builder, Tom found that commercially available fireplaces most often did not match the distinct décor required by the designs of the homes he was building. As a result Tom was forced to fabricate special parts for each fireplace; a process that was costly and time consuming.
Seeing a need in the market, Tom set out in 2003 to develop a product line and a company that made it easier for designers and builders to use a gas fireplace as a design element in custom and unique environments. In 2005 Spark Modern Fires introduced its first Fire Ribbons which were shipped in early 2006.
The market enthusiastically accepted the new products, with many being installed in high end locations such as the Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Hotels, and “W” Hotels. The new products were so well received that in 2007 and 2008 Spark Modern Fires was nominated to participate in the prestigious Interior Design Award for Best Architectural Product of the Year, winning the award in 2007 for the Fire Ribbon and finishing among the top four in 2008 for The Linear Burner.
