Combining clean lines with architectural finesse, the Chesneys collection of contemporary mantels offers an innovative alternative to traditional mantel design.
Inspired by five of their most popular fire surrounds, The Elemental Collection by Chesneys re-imagines these designs with a scale and simplicity to complement a wide range of interiors, both traditional and contemporary.
Chesneys have a long history of collaborating of collaboration with leading designers from the fields of fashion, furniture and interior design. These collections have formed an important addition to the rich tradition of domestic fireplace design.
Following the relative simplicity of the Regency period, Victorian fireplace design was characterised by an eclectic and unrestrained approach, incorporating elements of both classicism and naturalistic detail.
The Regency period saw a more austere approach to the use of classical ornament that had previously received such widespread and unfettered interpretation by Robert Adam and his followers during the 18th century.
Georgian fireplace design was based on the classical orders and followed strict rules of proportion whilst employing a rich and varied range of decorative devices.
We are very pleased with our choice and with the quality of the workmanship. We were also impressed with the service provided by all the staff we have had contact with at Ivett & Reed.
