Ashley Electric Fireplace | Real Flame

Available at Amazon.com

The moment coffee shops across America start telling you to pumpkin-spice up your life, you know that summer is over. You start dreaming of cable knits, hayrides and nights in front of the fireplace. Wait — you don’t have a fireplace? No worries; we’ve got you covered.

Whether you have an apartment, a dorm room or a house that was simply born without a chimney, the Ashley Electric Fireplace from Real Flame ($579), available at Amazon.com, will serve a dual purpose — as an architectural focal point for your seasonal decorating and an extra bit of heat on those chilly winter nights.

This remote-controlled fireplace has an adjustable temperature that is powerful enough to warm up a drafty living room or bedroom (we don’t recommend it as a primary heating source, though). It stands 42 inches tall, 48 inches wide and 14 inches deep. Made of solid wood and veneered MDF, it comes in three finishes: black wash, mahogany and white. Get your garland ready.
