The fireplace is the warm heart of a home, welcoming family and friends to gather around and share conversation and laughter. Fireplaces are also focal points in any room, whether you have one only in the living room or dining room or are lucky enough to have one in your master bedroom too! Some older houses that have been renovated even have one in the bathroom, creating a charming and cozy atmosphere.
When you are designing the look of your fireplaces, you will need to take several elements into account, including the mantle, the surround, the screen, and the hearth tools. We have many options available to provide the decorative style that you want and the high-quality functional aspects that you need.
A handsome fire mantle and surround are the most important things to start with. As you stare into the flickering flames these elements frame the beautiful glow, so you want to choose pieces that you find attractive and that will work for decades as the anchor to complement the architecture and interior design style of your room.
For example, you might decide that an antique-inspired decorative mantle and surround boasting stunning crotch mahogany veneers, classic grooved pillars, and ornate brass ornaments will create a noble look in your traditional decor. Brass is a traditional material for the hearth and it has a lovely warm appeal in its luster.
Next you will choose a screen, which is essential for safety and also an important part of the visual appeal. Our selection includes very traditional styles, in swirling iron with bronze and gold leaf accents, or with distressed antique white flourishes. More modern options have crisp geometric designs that will look terrific in a contemporary or Mid-Century Modern home.
Finally, our fire irons and hearth tools including vintage coal boxes will add the finishing touch to fireplaces, making them an inviting place for everyone to mingle around the hearth.
