The Custom Stone Fireplace Mantle
A Masterpiece In Stone!

The custom stone fireplace mantle -- carefully cut, carved, honed and polished -- and arranged in all its formal splendor . . . contrasts sharply with the equally splendid casual stone fireplaces that are custom crafted by master stone artisans . . . . . . .

. . . Smoothly finished and more formal in  appearance  than  their  laid-back casual cousins, they are "comfortable" in the most formal or ceremonious of settings.




Whether sculpted from limestone, marble, or any one of a variety of other striking  natural stone types,  the formal custom fireplace mantle,  in the hands of a highly skilled artisan,  is a veritable masterpiece in stone . . . . and a lasting tribute to the stone worker's art.

The intricate hand carved detailing  (see close-up images below)  and re-
fined  hand-rubbed finishes echo the painstaking efforts of master crafts-
man from ages past.    Not content with "business as usual," the modern day artisans behind these shining examples of custom natural stone man-
tles and surrounds are a rare,  but extremely dedicated group of individu-
als capable of satisfying the most discriminating of tastes with their truly remarkable work!

The two stunning designs that follow, with close-up images below,  were created by DMS Studios in New York. Sculpted from marble, the intricate carving and detailing are extraordinary!

No  design  is  too complex for these highly talented individuals devoted to their craft. The stunning marble mantle and surround pictured at the top of this page,  as well as the 4 fireplace mantles shown directly below  -  each of  which you can have a replica custom made for your home  -  are,  quite literally, fit for royalty.  Part of a series of important historic fireplaces from private  apartments  at  Kensington Palace,  Hampton Court,  the Tower of London  and  other Royal Palaces,  a private British firm has been granted a license  to  reproduce  these masterpieces in stone for those of us who are less privileged.

More Custom Stone Fireplace Mantles

The custom stone fireplace mantle below is very unusual . . . not only in its overall design,  but in the type of stone used to create it.   Made of soap-
stone,
 a type of stone generally reserved for upscale wood stoves, due to its heat absorption and distribution qualities, it has been beautifully sculpt-
ed to form a very striking mantle and surround.  The close-up images show the  high  level of detailing and craftsmanship involved in creating this very fine example of the stone worker's art.
