A Log Holder for Every Fireplace

It may be rainy or unseasonably hot in some parts of the country, but in the west, we're currently being hit with mega snowstorms. I can't complain because I love the snow, and it feels pretty appropriate here given it's February. My point being, a cozy fire sounds SO nice right about now. One accessory I've always loved alongside a fire is a log holder. I love the textural and functional element they contribute to a space. Click through for a roundup of my favorites... there's one for every style and budget! A log holder is one of those items you don't really think about buying or needing until you have one and see how nice/functional it makes a space. I'm here to tell you, based on looks alone, these accessories make a BIG statement.

First up, chic firewood holders! These beauties would nestle right into a glam loft or eclectic living room. My favorites? #1 - I'm digging the heavy base and unique shape, and #2 - because I'm always a sucker for the vintage mid mod vibe. That's how you do minimal, folks!

It seems there are tons of industrial options on the market, but not many fall into the true "modern" category. It took some searching, but the above options all feel mod and unique to me. I love anything bentwood (#4), and I'm also really drawn to numbers 1 and 3. #1 is actually outdoor friendly and would make a great addition to a patio or outdoor living space.

The woven options would be absolutely stunning in a beach setting or nautical inspired environment. I'm picturing a winter cabin on Lake Michigan! My favorite from the bunch is probably #4 because of it's sturdy shape and balanced aesthetic.

Totes have always been my go-to accessory. Whether it's a tote bag or tote firewood carrier, you can count me in! #1 is nice because it actually has sides and holds it's shape- even without wood. It'd be really versatile for other objects as well, like blankets or books in the spring and summer. I'm also loving the minimalism #3 has to offer. It comes with a monogram option as well!

Triangular log holders have been gaining popularity the past few years. Even though they've saturated the market, I'm still a huge fan. #2 would make an amazing statement alongside a fireplace and certainly has the scale and ability to balance a heavy focal point in a room. The obelisk shape feels a bit more trendy than the standard triangle.

Let's face it- log holders are about as traditional as it gets. They've been around since the beginning of time. It only makes sense to include a few that would easily fit into a traditional home. I'm into the arts and crafts version (#2), as well as the standard black and brass option (#3), and lastly the folding one (#4) because it's not often you see a folding firewood holder with an amazing color palette like that.

Last but not least, I'll leave you with some masculine options. These could also be classified as industrial. Nothing says masculine quite like wood resting on metal. It's a combo from the ages! I'm feeling numbers 1, 2, and 6. I can imagine #6 anchoring a large piece of artwork next to a fireplace. It's the only one from the entire roundup that is more horizontal.
Do you have favorites from this post? How often do you use a functioning fireplace, or would you make an aesthetic-only purchase even if your fireplace is nonfunctioning? I totally would!
