  • As one we crashed into the chimney breast and fell, just to the right of the hearth. From "The Last Werewolf" by Glen Duncan.

  • Well, I'd guess it means the structure that surrounds the chimney itself in a living room. Made of brick or stone and usually tapering toward the ceiling. At least this makes sense of the citation, and I don't know any other term for that thing.
