Finishing Laminate Flooring

I need advice/suggestions on how to finish laminate flooring next to a curved fireplace. What should I use to cover/ fill the the gap where the flooring butts up to the brick?

I once took a log cabin tour by a major log cabin manufacturer in Appalachia. In the most expensive home on display was an enormous and beautiful stone fireplace. Having been in the hardwood flooring business for years, my critical big eyes are always on alert.

The installer scribed around the natural stone fireplace. It was one of the best scribing jobs I ever saw, but it still fell short of the mark. For the most professional look, undercut the stone.

Sorry to be so picky, but it's like going into a home where they installed hardwood, engineered wood, or laminate and they didn't undercut the door jambs. You see the gaps and the less than smooth cuts around the jambs. Undercut for a smooth transition.
