What are the popular styles of antique fireplaces?
There is a large range of Victorian fireplaces available in different sizes and styles. The early style fireplaces were cast iron with elaborate decoration. The larger Victorian fireplaces included a fire surround made from stone, marble, slate or cast iron. Popular designs from the later period would make use of tiles.
The Victorian fireplace was the heart of the home during the era. During this time of the industrial revolution, major cities saw an influx of people looking for work increasing the demand for housing. The Victorian fireplace was the focal point of many homes.
A traditional terraced house would have an impressive Victorian fireplace on display in the front parlour. The home would also have a range cooker in the back room with traditional fireplaces heating the bedrooms.
Edwardian fireplaces are characterised by a sparse style with a simple design. The tiled fireplace would often be decorated by a single colour tile. Fireplaces of the era would also incorporate large-tile panels fitted with canopy on legs.
This popular Edwardian design continued into the Art Nouveau era and is still a classic design that is in demand today.
The Georgian period lasted between 1714 and 1837. The Georgian period saw the beginnings of the industrial revolution and the growth of English cities and an integrated transport system.
The Georgian Era also brought with it a new way of thinking with the English and Scottish Enlightenment.
Georgian or Regency Fireplaces are distinguished by simple marble surrounds and iron register grates. The design also included open baskets, bulls-eye, keystone detail or reeded panels.
Art Nouveau Fireplaces
Fireplaces designed during the Art Nouveau period are characterised by stylised embellishments of flowers with natural shapes and organic lines. The designs were based on natural forms such as leaves, plants, seed pods and root balls.
The elegance of the Art Nouveau Fireplaces offers a timeless design that remains popular to this day. The Art Nouveau style flourished between 1890 and 1910.
This movement in art and design was a reaction against 19th-century academic art and historicism. Famous influences of the Art Nouveau style in England include William Morris, John Ruskin and Victor Horta.
