Fireplace Mantels and Over-Mantels
Our custom designed and hand fabricated fireplace mantels reveal a range of possibilities with respect to scale, style, application, finish and motif. The majority of these installations were local to our location in South Florida but with planning we can build pieces to ship to your location. We have designed and produced many projects around the country and the world. Some are on this website. Planning and coordination is essential. Mantels are no exception. We can install and finish on site if suitable to your needs.

Over-mantels are a uniquely interesting design application. We can design, fabricate, finish and install from scratch or modify your existing fireplace condition. Many of our clients have an existing fireplace and wish it were more interesting or special. Frank Lloyd Wright said “The hearth is the psychological center of the home” and in his case designed his homes around the “hearth.” Historically and in our case, we can integrate mirror or artwork such as a painting or sculpture. We can develop a design from a reference that you may have collected in your travels. We show mirrors and mantels together in many cases on this website so please forgive any repetition of images.
We can reproduce any of these designs or use them to inspire a piece for you. We have built many large scale pieces on-site that are just too massive to produce any other way.
