Antique Fireplaces

Fireplaces have always been an essential element in the home. From early beginnings when cave men huddled around an open fire to keep warm to the elaborate carved chimney pieces that adorned Georgian and Victorian grand houses. The emphasis today has switched from being purely a means of heat source to becoming an essential piece of furniture in a room. The fireplace now needs to integrate with the rest of the room furnishings and at the same time give feeling that is original to the property.

With the current fashion for more simple and uncluttered interiors it is encouraging to hear from companies that specialize in restoring and selling antique fireplaces explaining how original period features such as fireplaces can be successfully incorporated into modern interior design.

Victorian Fireplaces

We specialize in the restoration of and selling of antique fireplaces including cast iron, wood, slate, stone and marble work. We understand the different periods and can find you the right period fireplace to suit the age and style of your property.

Many people when looking for a fireplace are concerned with the size of the opening, but the most important consideration is to select a fireplace, which is compatible with the size of the room. The opening in the chimney breast can easily be altered at the fitting stage.

Fireplace Installation

When you buy fireplaces from less scrupulous firms you may find that component parts are missing which may not be immediately obvious and can affect the installation or safety of your fireplace. We are experts in the supply and installation of fireplaces, employing our own dedicated and experienced restoration and installation experts.
