MCM Malm Fireplace

Two years ago, I covered a home for that featured a Malm fireplace on the back patio. I had seen them only in 70's interior photos - never in person. I was enchanted by the fabulous design and the fun kitsch factor. Here is the photo I took for Houzz:

Since then, I've seen this Midcentury Modern piece popping up more and more. They've become quite popular. I would really love to have one, but they're virtually impossible to find in my neck of the woods, unless you buy one new from Design Within Reach. But who wants to do that? Half the fun is the history and the hunt! Ah well, I'll just put this beautiful conversation piece on the same list as my Airstream.
