Panelled Chimney Breast
PANELLED CHIMNEY BREAST
This Chimney breast in a cottage in Cookham, which had a beautiful cast iron reclaimed fireplace installed, needed a design that was not straight forward, as the side returns where quite shallow and the cheeks on either side of the fireplace where also very slim, added to this our client was looking for a design that would compliment the small decorative squares on the fireplace. As you will see from the pictures, we decided to create a wrap around panel down each side of the chimney breast, which kept all the panels square and equal in their measurements. We also need to keep the panels slim so that we could fit under the coving and fit to the top of the original skirting board, so we used an American White Oak Veneered panel with Solid Oak panel mouldings, then finished off the wall in a medium stain, which suitably aged the panels
to be in keeping with the fireplace.
