Antique-style fireplace made from real marble with double lion design
The statues of two seated lions are the highlight of this magnificent double-height period fireplace. These majestic figures keep watch over the fire from either side. Between the two lions is the opulent marble surround, hand-carved with intricate ornaments and delicate swags of flowers. As you cast your eye upwards, you’ll see two impressive columns framing the upper opening – a space that is simply calling out to house a beautiful painting or a sophisticated mirror. Equally splendid are the panels on the outer edges of the two columns, which frame the upper section of the fireplace mantel and add a sense of intrigue with their gently curved shapes and exquisitely fine, hand-carved details.
In the product photo seen here, this antique-style marble chimneypiece, with its majestic lions and columns, has been carved from a light cream-coloured white marble. This type of marble works especially well in combination with a coloured wall, as the contrast adds to the already eye-catching impact of the fireplace. Whether the DUE-LEONI houses a crackling open fire or is simply installed as a decorative piece in its own right, it will soon be a talking point that stops every family member, friend or guest in their tracks when they catch sight of it – whether it’s for the first time or the hundredth!

Bespoke, hand-carved chimneypieces made from marble or natural limestone
All of the fireplaces in our RIACE collection are unique, one-off pieces. It’s not only the size of the mantel that’s bespoke, but also the individual touch brought to it by the stonemason who carves it. And of course, no two blocks of marble are the same either, in terms of their colour tones and the natural patterns found in the stone. All of this results in the Classic Garden Elements natural stone fireplaces being in a league of their own, a far cry from the mass-produced mantelpieces you also find on the market, which are made from faux stone and all look identical.
The DUE-LEONI fireplace, by comparison, is a true masterpiece. The appearance of the already top-quality marble or travertine is only enhanced by the precise craftsmanship of the stonemason. In choosing the DUE-LEONI, with its elegant lion statues and intricately carved columns, you are buying more than just a mantelpiece – you are buying a bespoke piece of handmade art that will be cherished for years to come. Whether you’re looking to add an elegant touch to your home, hotel or restaurant, you need look no further than this exquisite marble fireplace.
