Vauni, a Swedish design studio and manufacturer of ventless ethanol-powered fireplaces, has just launched a range of five limited-edition metallic finishes—including Stellar Black, Frozen Grey (shown), and Nordic Rust—to the aluminum shells of its wall-mounted Cupola collection, which was first released in 2011.

The semi-spherical fireplace is fueled by liquid bio-ethanol that does not produce smoke or ashes, and emits only small amounts of carbon dioxide and water vapor, eliminating the need for a flue. Cupola measures 31.8" in diameter by 13.7" deep. Its ethanol burner is fitted into a base at the bottom of the outer shell. The base itself comes in Black Granite, Ice Mineral, and Trillium Tech finishes.
