Now that the nights are drawing in our thoughts turn to enjoying the comforts of a stylish yet cosy room with a glorious real fire blazing in the hearth, to help keep winter at bay.
Haddonstone’s range of cast stone fire surrounds and fireplaces includes

fire in any home!

A Chesney’s fireplace always creates a grand focal point in any room and in the winter months this can be a feature, which looks great while also being a source of warmth and light.
However in the summer, how can you draw attention to the striking architectural presence of a Chesney’s fireplace in a different way?
Dressing the fireplace with seasonal blooms and foliage will show it in a fresh light: Try using catkins and willows to drape on and around the fireplace to maintain its focus in the room. Cascading foliage, flowers trailing to the floor from the mantel, a grate crammed full – and tumbling over delightfully with honeysuckle and jasmine, can be bright and romantic. Change the static and characterless vase of dried flowers, often stuck in the hearth when the fireplace is not in use, to make your Chesney’s fireplace a joyful and colourful centrepiece for the summer!
Featured here is the Marseilles fire surround from Chesney’s Stone Collection:
An 18th century provincial French design in bathstone, of warm colour and rugged texture, with console jambs, plain frieze and a generous mantel shelf. This design can be seen in chateaux and manor houses throughout France.
Haddonstone the leading UK manufacturer of superb architectural features, have expanded their range of fireplaces, mantels and chimney pieces to provide a choice of seventeen standard surrounds from the simple and stylish to the ornate and elegant.
Illustrated here is The Adam Chimney Piece HF110, which is an elegant design in the style of Robert Adam (1728-92), the prolific XVIII century architect.
This chimney piece incorporates legs in the form of Ionic half columns, supporting a mantel featuring swags and medallions surmounted by a dentilled cornice.
1. The key to decorating your fireplace is to complement it with your Christmas decorations, rather than allowing them to dominate it.
2. The mirror above should harmonise with the fireplace both in terms of size and style.
Historically, fire surrounds incorporating a feature of carving have been popular, bringing refinement and depth to a room.
Jane Churchill’s fireplace designs for Chesney’s use entirely original ornamental motifs, not influenced by any designs in the history of carving.
In terms of fireplace design she has made a radical departure in the Ormonde Fireplace, offering an entirely unprecedented appreciation of the beautiful.
Recognising the growing trend towards contemporary decorative design in interiors, Chesney’s and Jane Churchill have together produced some exquisite new fireplace designs.
The Jane Churchill range of fireplace designs for Chesney’s represents an exciting new direction in fireplace design marrying elements of traditional form with original and beautiful new concepts.
The Coral Fireplace design was inspired by a coral pattern from fabric weavers in Northern India.
Chesney’s, the well known supplier of classical and period fireplaces have been scouring the world looking for beautiful new types of stone for their range of fireplaces.
In the remote mountainous province of Hebei in China, they have found two unusually coloured and beautiful types of marble: St Augustine Marble which is black, and the yellow Giallo Treviso marble.
For those who want to create a talking point as well as a focal point, it’s hard to beat a real stone fireplace. This Lutyens fire surround from Templestone will certainly do the job, with its massive stone blocks and clean stylish lines.

This Georgian Fire Surround is from their reconstituted stone range, so it’s kinder to the wallet than the hand-carved natural stone alternative, yet it still looks fantastic.

They also have a range of standard designs to choose from. Pictured is the Scottish Gothic fire surround in natural stone. Reproduced from an example found in a Victorian Scottish “Castle” – this huge fireplace would make a magnificent addition to the grandest of rooms.
