The Chesney’s Contemporary Mantel Collection combines simple modern design with clear architectural form in a series of designs that ensure that the Mantel remains the focus of the room.
The designs in the Contemporary collection have been guided by the premise that whilst the detail and form of the mantel may have been re-imagined to suit modern tastes, its proportions should still be governed by traditional considerations that ensure its size suits the room into which it is to be installed.
The Chesney’s contemporary mantel collection contains both re-workings of classical designs and a number of entirely new designs.
The former have been selected in recognition of their timeless simplicity and strong architectural form with only minor changes made in order to enhance their minimalist appeal. The new designs are defined by entirely fresh architectural form and detail that does not draw upon earlier sources and offer an innovative alternative approach to traditional mantel design.
