Fireplaces create a sense of warmth and add luxury to a space – and of course, act as strong focal points to any room. One of our clients was looking to upgrade their outdated fireplace in their master bedroom to better reflect their contemporary aesthetic. We replaced their traditional mantel and pink marble with a sleek and minimal striped marble façade to create a truly contemporary fireplace.

 As you can see below, our design vision comes to life, from the initial site visit through to the final product.

This traditional and dated fireplace was in a location with so much potential for a big "wow" moment. With some tweaks, we knew this fireplace could become a great focal point.
