Just imagine the stories a fireplace might tell if it could speak. In many homes, the fireplace is often overlooked and underutilized as a tool for showcasing an eye for design. As the weather cools, give the warmest room in your home the update it deserves with the help of our mahogany fireplace mantel. This exquisite antique reproduction was inspired by the simplicity and grace of Georgian furnishings that were produced from 1714 to 1830. Georgian pieces are defined by delicacy, elegance, and fine proportions, all of which we replicated by carving, sanding, and finishing every detail by hand with great care and contemplation.
Our Georgian fireplace mantel is made of the finest plantation-grown Honduran mahogany. At the height of the Georgian era, mahogany replaced walnut as the preferred wood of furniture makers. The South American species that we employ features a beautiful brown hue that darkens over time and a pleasing straight grain that gives this traditional fireplace mantel a timeless appeal. Mahogany is also less brittle than soft pines yet more flexible to work with than hard oaks. To protect the wood and help our mahogany fireplace mantel shine, we added a satin semi-gloss finish. You can change the stain to match other wood tones found within your home, such as cherry, oak, pine, rosewood, or walnut.
Customize our Georgian fireplace mantel from top to bottom:
- Add one of our hand-carved mahogany mirrors for dramatic effect
- Change the proportions to suit the specific requirements of your firebox
- Request an antiqued, distressed, or washed finish to create an old-world look
Made with generous proportions, Laurel Crown’s traditional fireplace mantel is sure to add some focal interest to any space in your home that could use some added warmth and charm.
