Fireplace inserts can be vented through an existing chimney, direct vented, b-vented, or vent free. A b-vent unit draws air from inside the home, through ports in the firebox itself. A direct vent unit draws air through a pipe from outside the home, into a sealed firebox. Direct vent models are usually more efficient and safer for todays airtight homes, since they do not use inside air or cause a conflict with range foods and bathroom fans circulating the same air. B-vent units are generally less expensive to install, but are more sensitive to air flow inside the home.
Of course, modern homes do not need to worry so much about this functionality, so the fireplace design has become a bit more of an artful focal point, yet they usually still remain in the corner of a room. There are plenty of online sources that offer unique Scandinavian-style fireplaces, so take a look and see if you can find one to add this warm eclectic touch to your home.

You could have a small fireplace set in the middle of your patio, or you could have a large all glass fireplace sitting in the middle of your living room.
