A grand, historic chimneypiece, painstakingly hand-carved in Imperial white marble, makes any home stately. This well-proportioned design is based on the chimneypiece in the famously magnificent library at Kenwood House, which was created in the late 1760's. Bearing all the hallmarks of Robert Adam's love affair with classicism, it included some of his signature decorations: sphinxes on the frieze, decorative pilasters topped by Corinthian capitals on the jambs, and bucrania (oc heads) on the frieze blocks. The source of inspiration for our distinctive Library hob grate was the early-18th-century model which partners the original chimneypiece. All our grates and fire baskets are suitable for solid-fuel, gas coal-effect, bio-ethanol and electric fires, so the choice is yours.
