As temperatures continue to drop and people look to hunker down this winter, here is a round-up of luxury condos with cozy fireplace-centric lobbies.

Four Seasons One Dalton
The tallest residential tower in all of Boston and New England, Four Seasons One Dalton features a luxurious private residents' lobby designed by Thierry Despont that provides a warm, inviting arrival. A sumptuous, custom-designed fireplace framed in red travertine stone provides a distinct focal point, while rich mahogany walls and a coffered ceiling create a wooden jewel box experience — a feature inspired by classic townhouses in Boston's Back Bay and the nearby Trinity Church.
