Why place an antique fireplace in your home?

An antique fireplace quite literally transforms a room. Not only because of the abundant character which they bring to a space but also because a fireplace is a real focal point - it brings people together. They are lovely community pieces.
When deciding where it goes, you need not stick to the norm. There are many who have styled antique fireplaces in very unique ways. One great example is of someone who installed a fireplace in the garden, on a patio space next to the pool. It proved a wonderful place to gather around on summer evenings - a very unique alternative to the usual grill or campfire.

Different styles of antique fireplaces

Styles of antique fireplace depend on the era, and even location, from which they originated. Many expert dealers will be able to tell exactly which part of London an antique fireplace comes from based on the style, size and material. Beautiful corbelled Georgian antique fireplaces are common in Fitzrovia where the wealth of the gentry who lived there could afford luxurious materials such as carrera marble. By contrast, Victorian homes favoured cast iron stoves and fireplace surrounds. Whether you prefer ornate carving or tiles, wavy or straight contours, our selection of antique fireplaces will leave you spoiled for choice.
