English Fireplaces offers a range of contemporary fireplaces and fire surrounds where the emphasis shifts from the intricate detailed carving that one expects to see with a period fire surrounds to the discipline of architectural form – in pursuit of “less is more”.
Of course a contemporary fireplace must continue to be the focal point of the room – but usually with a quieter voice. It stands less proud, less authoritative – less individual – more of a complimentary piece than a contrast.
Amongst the surrounds you’ll see in our contemporary collection it is a little ironical that our two most popular contemporary models are modern re-interpretations of enduring simpler classical designs – The Bolection and the Blenheim – The Bolection in particular looks equally at home in a Georgian rectory or a Fulham terrace.
Given that form is so important with all contemporary fireplaces and fire surrounds the choice of material is critical in maximising the character inherent in its structure. English Fireplaces will be delighted to guide you not only in a choice of fire surrounds but also the selection of materials.
