Recently KKDL designer Jill has been finding new and exciting products for her own new home build. When she discovered Mendota Hearth, she let me know about all the options the company has for high-end fireplace inserts. I was excited and floored that we hadn’t heard of their products before.

Mendota‘s award-winning gas fireplaces, gas fireplace inserts, and gas stoves are designed and built by the Mendota Hearth division of Johnson Gas Appliance Co. For more than 110 years, Johnson Gas has been a leader in gas technologies. Founded in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1901, the headquarters of the family-owned company resides there today. Their experience in the business comes through as you can see by the tools they offer designers and homeowners when selecting a fireplace.

When you visit the Mendota Hearth website, it’s easy to create a custom fireplace design with the My Mendota fireplace design tool. Simply select a model, and then bring your fireplace to life with a choice of designer fronts, doors, overlays and interior linings. When you’re finished building your fireplace, hit Print Specs and take the printout to an Authorized Mendota Dealer.

– Choose a model: FV46

– Choose a Front or Doors: Traditions, FullView46

– Select Available Options: Metal Finish-Black; Logs- Driftwood
