Although a much-abused term, the concept of a ‘classic’ piece of design is entirely valid; true classics can be defined by their ability to sit happily in many different settings – secure in the quality of their own design.
Fireplaces are a great example of the need for classic pieces and After The Antique has an excellent collection of designs, which work just as well in contemporary surroundings as in traditional interiors.
The essence of their success is simplicity of line, correct proportions and the quality of both the stone and the stonemasonry.
Featured here is just one of the company’s superb choice of classic fireplaces:
The Gothic Revival Fireplace (shown in white marble) Priced from £4,100.
Standard mantel length is 1526mm; or sized to order on special commission (Also available in limestone.)
After The Antique is a traditional stonemasonry company, whose skilled craftsmen will hand carve virtually any interior or exterior decorative element in solid natural stone. This means anything from a fireplace, urn or statue, to an orangery or garden temple.
