Marble work often brings to mind images of the immense and beautiful works of art the Romans and Greeks created. Similarly, marble fireplaces of today provide a timeless, stunning, and functional work of art that can be enjoyed in any home.
Malleable: Often wood or cast stone are the first material choices considered by customers, but marble has valuable features that wood or cast stone can’t always provide. First and foremost, marble’s soft texture provides the perfect canvas for intricate designs within the mantel. Unlike woodwork, marble designs are not easily chipped or scraped. The intricate design features can be best noted on our Regal Marble Mantel and its gorgeous depiction of a lion on each leg of the mantel. The lions are handcrafted so each marble mantel will remain a one of a kind piece of art and unique from all the rest.
Color and Design: When choosing your marble, consider black, beige or green in addition to the natural white marble. Also keep in mind the porous nature of the marble will create a pearly shine. The porous rock allows light to come into the rock so it is actually reflecting and gleaming white and gray.
All of our mantels can be custom ordered, so a large green marble mantel is just as doable as a small black marble mantel. The Versailles Marble Fireplace is one we have done in several colors – all options look great!
Marble mantels provide gorgeous backdrops to any room and will last for years in any living space. For a timeless and tasteful mantel, be sure to check out our marble mantels and consider one for your home.
