The Portland fireplace is in the Palladian style, fashionable in Britain between 1715 and 1760, based on the designs of the 16th-century Venetian architect Andrea Palladio. He reinterpreted the forms and ornament of ancient Roman buildings to create an architecture based on symmetry, proportion and perspective.
The Portland fireplace is named after the white/grey limestone that is quarried from the island of Portland, and which was used for buildings such as Buckingham Palace and St. Pauls Cathedral in London.
The fireplace is painted in a subtle pale grey speckle to echo the Portland stone and features an electric fire, fire irons, and coal scuttle. The over mantle is mirrored, and in front of it stands a five piece garniture, including a Baroque style clock, two urns and two ceramic flower posies, all exclusively made and hand painted to go on this fireplace. The ceramic style pieces are painted in pastel shades to go with any decor.
