Rumford fireplaces were quite common back in the 1800’s. The design of the Rumford fireplace is that of a tall and shallow firebox with steeply angled side walls and a curved throat. This design radiates more heat into the room which minimizes the amount of warm air going up the chimney. Rumford fireplace components and design make it easy for any mason to construct.
