We see (and admittedly, create) articles aplenty detailing gorgeous ideas for styling the mantle, but what about organizing what goes on below? Many contemporary fireplaces have firewood storage solutions integrated into the design, and Pinterest is rife with images of floor-to-ceiling built-ins stuffed with perfectly sized logs. However most of us are left to our own devices when it comes to figuring out how to store our woodsy fuel. Here are four ideas that go beyond the traditional curved metal log holder: a sleek shelving tower, an earthy serving tray, stylish leather totes, and rustic wicker baskets.
