20 Fireplace Mantels that Create Inspired Fireplace Designs

Fireplace mantels are one effect that can really round out a decorative touch in a living room or any room that has a fireplace. Fireplace mantels have been around for thousands of years and are still accepted today as standards in interior design. These 20 examples are all constructed of stone. Styles range from contemporary to renaissance to Louis XIV. I think many of these are transitional and would work in a multitude of decorative settings. All of these fireplace mantels come from Francois & Co. They employ a technique called “Scagliola” which became popular during the 17th century in Tuscany as a replacement for costly marble inlays. Francois & Co. scour Europe looking for old examples so that they can model these in their current designs.
