The distinctive stone fireplace mantles in the photos below retain the nos-
talgic charm of yesteryear by incorporating traditional elements such as authentic mouldings and universal forms that have warmed our hearts for generations. Inspired by classic and timeless designs spanning several centuries, the traditional surrounds shown here include revivals of today's most popular period styles, crafted from both cast and natural stone.
Finely cut or cast and uniformly arranged stone - typically limestone,
cast stone or marble - is honed and polished to a relatively smooth finish.
pending upon the degree and quality of hand carved or cast detailing and finishing, the stone mantlepieces pictured below depict a variety of semi-
formal to very formal traditional styles.
