Design Inspiration for limestone and marble fireplaces

Limestone or Marble Fireplaces that suit your Interior Design style

Do you know what's possible?

It's relatively easy to find an off-the-shelf limestone fireplace in one of the more popular stones in a standard size and made to a relatively simple design. It's great if that works with the decor scheme in your room but what do you do if you are looking for something a little less ordinary?

In reality, the options are limitless. 

This page is intended to be a design inspiration guide to show some of the options that are available.

It is possible to have any design in any type of stone made to any size. Each of the designs below were made to the customer's specification
