PORTLAND FIREPLACE

The Georgian period (between 1714 and 1830) had many varying styles but the best known was based on the classical architecture and art of ancient Greece and Rome.

This georgian fireplace references this and has a split pediment and two simple columns supporting the mantle. Each one is individuallly painted to look like Portland stone. 

Portland stone was used to build the Palace of Westminster in 1347, and the Tower of London in 1349. Sir Christopher Wren used nearly one million cubic feet  of it to build St Pauls Cathedral after the Great Fire of London in 1666. Buckingham palace was faced with Portland stone in 1854.

On the mantle is a large domed clock, a pair of 18th century style figures with crystal effect vases in front of two wall mounted electric lights.

There is a Georgian style electric fire basket in the brick backed hearth, flanking the fire is a brass coal scuttle and set of iron and brass fire irons on a stand.

The Fireplace measures 125mm wide 210mm high 60mm deep

HAREWOOD FIREPLACE


The Harewood fireplace is named after Harwood House,which was decorated by Robert Adam in 1765. The fireplace reflects fashionable colour schemes of the time and can be painted to match any existing scheme (please email for details).


The fireplace has a fendered hearth holding an electric fire and full coal bucket. On the mantlpiece is a clock, pair of hand painted ornaments to match the fire colour scheme, and pair of electric lamps with crystal effect shades.


The 'Adam' style is an 18th-century neoclassical style of interiors and architecture, as practised by Scottish brothers Robert (1728–1792) and JamesAdam (1732–1794).


The Adam brothers aimed to simplify the previously fashionable Rococo and Baroque styles to bring a lighter and more elegant feel to Georgian houses infuenced by Ancient roman and Greek styles. (Interest in the Adam style was revived in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, initiated by items exhibited at the Paris Exposition of 1867).


The Adam brothers were the first to advocate an integrated style for architecture and interiors; with walls, ceilings, fireplaces, furniture, fixtures, fittings and carpets all being designed by the Adams as a single uniform scheme.


The Adam style found its niche from the late 1760s in upper-class and middle-class residences in 18th-century England, Scotland, and Russia (where it was introduced by Scottish architect Charles Cameron), and post-revolution United States (where it became known as Federal style and took on a variation of its own). The style was superseded from around 1795 onwards by the Regency and French Empire styles.
