This exquisite French Louis XVI mantel was originally carved from a light cream limestone. The gently curved paneled jambs support an understated yet very elegant lintel. The hearth opening has a crossbow shape allowing very decorative curves.
By extracting the essence of the Scagliola technique, Thierry François created an original process by which all forms of hand-crafted limestone — including marbles — have the look of natural, hand-cut stone. This extraordinary stone inlay and “cross batch” technique is one-of-a-kind.
