Natural stone mantelpieces and fireplace surrounds
An antique natural stone mantelpiece for cosy nights by the fireplace
Nothing is cosier than sitting in front of an open fire at night. An antique mantelpiece would become the showpiece of your living room. Antiekbouw is the specialist par excellence in the recovery of old and rustic building materials. Antiekbouw sells beautiful mantelpieces that were retrieved from old castles and mansions. We carefully and skilfully restore them in our own workshop.
Natural stone, a timeless choice for a cosy interior
When you decide to embellish your interior with an attractive fireplace, it is important to find the appropriate mantelpiece. Mantelpieces are usually associated with castles. Authentic natural stone mantelpieces give a robust impression. Yet, combined with a wooden floor, they create a cosy and pleasant atmosphere. Especially the stylish, antique French mantelpieces are very popular. We offer a choice from all kinds of marble mantelpieces, mantelpieces in Pierre de France or other types of natural stone such as granite or bluestone.
Finish off your mantelpiece with a decorative cast iron fireplace surround
Antiekbouw also offers a wonderful collection of historic cast iron and bronze fireplace surrounds to enhance the look of your mantelpiece. Fireplace surrounds used to be a luxury, only affordable for royalty and nobility. Hence, these decorative surrounds are often decorated with weapons and coats of arms in addition to classic or natural scenes. Fireplace surrounds protect the back wall of the chimney against bursting or chipping under the influence of the heat of the fireplace. A cast iron surround absorbs the heat of the fireplace and gives it off in the living room. Fireplace surrounds increase the efficiency of a fireplace by 50%. Thicker surrounds provide for a longer and softer radiation of heat. If you need additional heating in your living room, you could opt for an antique cast iron radiator.
