As the weather starts to get colder, sitting by the fire becomes a viable past time. If you are spending hours sitting cozily gazing at flames, here are some stylish fireplace accessories to create a design worthy moment at the hearth.  Tools and andirons can certainly pick up on locale, whether the setting is rustic or refined.

 The Heath Andirons from Arteriors have a surrealist, sculptural quality to them. They add a bit of worldly glamour to a space, and look like a find brought back from an exotic antique shop. New to the category, Arteriors recently launched an entire array of fireplace accessories with a varied point of view, from streamlined to highly decorative.

A scroll flourish on Arteriors Gil Andirons brings a bit of femme glamour to the flames.

Taking their cue from vintage finds, giant brass spheres sit on a patinated metal base in Arteriors stately Hammond Andirons.

Stacked rings in black iron provide West Elm's andirons with a circular pattern and graphic sensibility.

For a more classic interior, Chesney's Malvern Fire Tool Set pairs antiqued brass and dark steel with ball finial detailing.

Modernists will love West Elm's sleek fire tools with linear appeal in brushed silver.
