Touchstone Forte Steel Electric Fireplace in bedroom by @southernwellsms

Designed to look just like a wood burning fireplace, The Sideline® Steel Electric Fireplace collection pairs Touchstone's industry-leading realistic LED flames with a classic metal screen front.

The glare-free, non-reflective flame display offers a traditional fireplace style, without the smokey smell and stress of a real fire. The Sideline Steel's front display remains cool to the touch for added safety in homes with children and pets.
