  • Touchstone Forte Recessed Electric Fireplace with Black Frame

    Modern Blaze - Touchstone Authorized DealerTouchstone Forte is a modern Electric Fireplace that is designed for recessed-in-wall installation. Its narrow and tall flame display features unmatched realistic flames. Forte is only 40" wide which makes it a great wall accent for smaller walls.

    Forte features realistic flames showcased within its 17" high glass display with 5 flame settings. It heats up to 400 square feet with 2 heat settings (1000W and 1500W). This Electric Fireplace gives you the beauty and warmth of a fireplace without the toxic fumes and mess of traditional fireplaces. 

    Simple to operate, the fireplace's heat and flame settings are fully controlled by a hand-held remote. A heat-free setting lets you enjoy the realistic flames of the fireplace all year round.

    Installed in an existing fireplace. Looks and works great.

    Simulated fire

    The fireplace shows nicely. However, after 2 weeks (delivered Dec 2019) of use (4 to hours every other day or so) the rotating reflector has started to make a grinding/rubbing sound. Most of the time the heat is selected off which leads me to believe it is a motor bearing issue or support rod bearing issue. I have submitted a report to product support but have not heard back yet. Thanks, James

    Electric fireplace

    Being married to a builder I was skeptical about trying a “fake” fireplace but I wanted something for a room we plan to remodel in an small old house. We have it set in place to test it out while waiting on warm weather before beginning the remodeling project. I have to admit this was a nice surprise. The fireplace puts out plenty of heat, is fairly quiet and gives the room a nice glow in the evening. The “fake” fire looks amazing and it was nice that it came with the option of the log look, crystal glass for a modern look and off white rocks. We can already see that it will be easy to frame a small wall around it in the corner of the room. The glass front which covers the black surround gives the fireplace a very elegant, modern look that still has warmth and charm.
