While many people may think of this common architectural feature as a simple “hole in the wall”, the truth is that by creating a custom fireplace mantel you can make a bold design statement that reflects your style.
This is especially true when selecting the natural beauty of Authentic Durango Stone as the material to create a mantel piece to your specifications.
Some homeowners choose a subdued, yet elegant rounded mantel for their fireplace designs. This often extends to the surround in front of the fireplace as well.
In these cases, each curve is hand crafted from marble limestone block by our Stone Artisans, creating a rounded edge that perfectly compliments the relaxing crackle of a warm fire. Our Honed & Filled or Truly Tumbled products work wonderfully for these kinds of projects.
Many homeowners prefer a more angular design, with exact edges and dimensions. Our state of the art production facilities precision-cut each piece of stone for the fireplace mantel, allowing for easy and accurate installation.
