Modern Blaze - Touchstone Authorized Dealer

Touchstone Sideline 40" electric fireplace has the most realistic flame available in an electric smokeless fireplace, and it will leave all your friends nervous about putting their hands up to the glass face (it is cool and safe to the touch by the way). 

Touchstone Sideline 40" has a ventless design, with an air vent opening on the face of the fireplace delivering the heat. This allows for a fully recessed in-wall installation and finished built-in look.

Touchstone Sideline 40" fireplace is perfect for smaller walls and delivers a built-in look and ambiance that other electric fireplaces can touch. You'll have the look of a real fireplace, built right into your wall without the hassle of having to clean the unit.

Touchstone Sideline 40" has 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings, and the fireplace can be operated without the heat, so feel free to use it on a summer evening as well as on the coldest winter nights.

This electric fireplace comes with both decorative glass crystals and a log set, so you can match the look of the flame to your room decor. Installation instructions, wall mounting brackets, and a convenient remote control to adjust all functions of the fireplace are also included.

Absolutely perfect!

I should of done a fireplace when building my home but I didn’t. We live in Alabama along the coast and rarely do we really need a fireplace. After moving in I was truly missing that character a fireplace gives a home. I looked and lowes and home depot and was honestly to nervous to purchase one from there with the horrible reviews and the fact I could not find what I was looking for. After some research I ran across Modern Blaze. We went with this electric fireplace because it was a statement piece! The natural look the logs and flame give is truly amazing. It was here within a week of ordering. We finished up the fireplace and mounted this baby right into place. Me and my husband completed this project ourselves. It was very simple and instructions easy to follow. Very happy with our purchase.

Cabin cozy….

Customer service was excellent. Install was easiest part of our project. And I never want to leave my family room now! It’s exactly what I had hoped for and more :) I especially love the look of a fire when we don’t need the extra heat!

Excellent product

We couldn't be happier with our purchase. Has the look and feel that we were hoping for, and love that it came with rock and crystal options for the fireplace look. Can't complain about the super fast shipping either.
