Gap in flooring

We just finished installing a Armstrong Armalock floor and are very happy with the results except for one part. We have one wall that is solid brick from floor to ceiling (with a fireplace) There is about a 1/4 inch gap between the flooring and the brick. What would be the best way to fill this gap? T-strip? Any help you can give would be appreaciated. Thanks!

What about quarter-round stained to match the flooring just along that brick wall?

I've heard the use of clear silicone caulk used. Apply the caulk and sprinkle some brick dust on it before it "hardens." Well that will probably not work either if it's a floating floor, as it would just come loose after foor traffic. Forget my idea

Talked with a customer today who used a coping saw to get molding to fit around fire place. I also inspected a job where the installer coped the boards around a stone fireplace to match perfectly.
