Malm began making fireplaces in 1960. Malm fireplaces are designed and manufactured in California's Sonoma County near the famed wine country. Modern or traditional designs are available, designed with solid craftsmanship and quality materials. Our free standing fireplaces are perfect for today's busy lifestyles. Traditional masonry brick fireplaces take hours to heat the mass of bricks and waste much of the heat. Malm fireplaces heat up rapidly and radiate heat efficiently in all directions. Unlike traditional wood burning fireplaces our fireplaces allow you a clear view of your fire from any angle and are available in a range of designer colors.Malm's selection of architect designed fireplaces are avaialble in a variety of porcelain colors, brass, stainless, nickel, copper plated or matte black finish.
