Until the 20th century and the invention of mechanized heating systems, rooms were heated by open or central fires. Modern fireplaces are often used as elements to enhance the grandeur of interior Spaces rather than as heat sources. Today, fireplaces of different qualities, materials, and styles are available all over the world. Today’s mantelpieces often contain buildings from two or more periods or cultures. Take a look at our stone indoor fireplace surround. This is a very traditional stone indoor fireplace surround with very detailed marble carving to add more style to your space.
The fireplace in its design provides a unique opportunity for sculptors/artisans to demonstrate their skill in sculpting each fine decorative element. Elements such as capital letters, shapes, stands, figurines, animals, fruits, and plants are commonly used to decorate mantelpieces. One might say that a mantel can be an encyclopedia of sculpture. Not only the materials, but the quality of the carving determines the quality of the mantelpiece, thus accentuating the magnificence of the room.
