A CHESNEYS MANTEL SHOULD BE THE BEST THERE IS.THAT WAS OUR PHILOSOPHY WHEN WE FOUNDED THE COMPANY OVER 30 YEARS AGO AND IT REMAINS THE SAME TODAY.

The scope of the company’s business has expanded exponentially since it was founded.

Chesneys was initially concerned with the restoration of antique mantels but a quantum leap was made in the early 90s with the move into the reproductions of period mantel designs in stone, marble and iron.

Chesneys was the first company to make authentic reproductions of mantels available at an affordable price and to develop a sophisticated customized service for both classical and contemporary mantel designs.

The company is unique in the collaborations it has forged with historical bodies such as The Soane Museum and The Lutyens Foundation and the collections it has produced with leading designers such as Jasper Conran, Jane Churchill and Barbara Hulanicki.

Chesneys has also developed an award winning range of wood burning stoves and energy efficient gas fires and is recognized as offering the widest product range within its industry. The company has diversified into architectural stonework and projects have been secured worldwide for specialist items such as cantilevered staircases and classical stone facades.

In addition to its own showrooms in London and New York, Chesneys has a rapidly expanding trade sales arm and its products are now sold through over 200 authorised dealerships in the UK, Europe, Middle and Far East and North and South America. The company's products are to be found in the most prestigious residential and hospitality projects.
