Three London Apartments
Marmorea recently undertook installations in three London apartments, each requiring a fire surround, overmantle mirror and wood flooring.
In the first picture, the chimneypiece is a reproduction of an original Louis XVI surround already in our inventory, and was created – as are all our reproduction surrounds – with the utmost attention to detail. In white marble with corner and centre paterae, it is a simply designed piece that fits seamlessly with the existing decor and is well complemented by the 1950’s panelled mirror with an ebonised frame.
In the next apartment we installed a Regency pier mirror with a rope twist design, paterae decoration, and a breakfront pediment. The original glass plate, which is framed in a black reeded slip, has an appealing distressed foxing.
The surround in the same apartment is in Italian, Carrara marble with fluted, tapering jambs, end blocks of carved, square paterae and moulded inner slips.
In the final apartment we installed a 19th century French, gold gilt crested mirror with original plate glass. Flanked by wall lights, it sits above a pompadour style, Louis XV Carrara marble fireplace with original brass vents in the return panels that add an elegant finishing touch.
All the apartments have been fitted with our exclusive Dutch, wood flooring.
