Need advice on picking out a fireplace for new home

PLS373March 2, 2013

In the process of building a new home. We are putting in a gas fireplace and I am looking for advice on what to buy. Our needs are minimal since we have a gas fireplace in our current home and do not use it that much. So a low price and aesthetics are going to be more important than efficiency and features. This will be going in a corner and we have about 66" of space across. So I was thinking no bigger than a 30" or 36". Preferably no louvers. We like the look of a blocky one piece metal surround. Definitely a contemporary simple look. Attached is a sketch of the design for the fireplace wall. Any recommendations?

Lennox has some nice models, quite a span of price points and their styles tend to be more contemporary than rustic.
