The Europa fireplace is the largest in the Dee-Daw Designs range and is an ideal a statement piece for any grand reception room. The fireplace style, although a bit of a fantasy, is inspired by the Baroque period – which emerged in Italy in the late-16th century. In Britain, the baroque style was adopted by sir Christopher Wren with St Paul’s Cathedral being his most noteable baroque building in the 18th century.
It features a weathered brick effect chimney fronted by a fire, coal scuttle full of coal and and fire irons on stand. On the mantlepiece are four urns with a large baroque clock in the centre. The picture in the overmantle frame is of two of the muses and was painted by french artist Vouet in 1634. The cotton canvas fabric of the picture is varnished to give a more realistic oil painting effect. The working electric fire, clock, urns and coal scuttle are exclusive and made by me for this fireplace. All the decorative elements of the fireplace and its structure are hand painted and gilded.
The Europa can be custom made in any colour scheme or ornament configuration with either mirror or different picture in the overmantle frame. Take a look at the fireplaces in the GALLERY section for ideas – and feel free to get in touch to discuss yours!
