Excluding hearth and mantelAs a reaction to the overtly ornate style of the Baroque period, and influenced by Roman architecture seen during the ‘Grand Tour’, aristocratic Georgians developed a taste for what became known as NeoClassical designs where elegance and symmetry became emblematic.
The Kensington and Knightsbridge Inserts characterise this era perfectly. The only difference is that today you can choose to have a gas fire with upgradeable remote control if you do not wish to burn logs or coal.
Elegantly crafted to exacting standards, our classic fireplaces include a variety of both period precise reproductions and history inspired, designer styles. These complete fireplaces feature a grate and built-in fireback, which can be inserted into 36” by 36” (915 x 915mm) chimney openings or larger. Designed to burn solid-fuels such as wood or coal, they can also be selected as a gas fire with optional remote control.
