A fine mantel defines the style and statement of an interior, making the selection of the right mantel for your home of utmost importance. Francois & Co. is pleased to present four exquisite mantel collections distinguished by outstanding design, scale and detail. We offer an exceptional selection of European antique mantels, as well as our historic Collection of antique replicas. Our Inspiration and Moderne Collections feature original mantel designs inspired by history, nature and art.
FRENCH HISTORIC MANTEL COLLECTION
Our French Historic Collection features exquisite reproductions of antique masterpieces from the Golden Age of French classical architecture of the 16th to 19th centuries. Rendered in the warm textures of hand carved limestone and Scagliola Stone TM, each of these mantels is a piece of history, and a true work of functional art.
ENGLISH HISTORIC MANTEL COLLECTION
Our English period stone mantel collection encompasses the most elegant fireplace designs available in 18th and 19th century Britain. Each and every mantel included in the collection has been carefully selected for its exquisite architectural proportions and fine decorative details, intrinsic to the style of the era when it was originally carved.
INSPIRATION MANTEL COLLECTION
Drawing inspiration from historical reference and contemporary design, Francois & Co. has created the Inspiration Collection- A line of original fireplace mantels that upholds our standards of architectural balance and harmonious proportions. All of our Inspiration pieces are uniquely distinguished by careful craftsmanship and creativity, while presenting an array of scales and styles to suit any interior.
MODERNE MANTEL COLLECTION
Inspired by the tranquility of Nature and the beauty of modern architecture, our Moderne Collection unites the concepts of purity of form, warmth of home, and the innovation of modern design. With an understated yet evocative presence, Francois & Co.’s Moderne mantels are an interpretation and a tribute to the magnificence of the natural world.
It all starts with the raw materials. The traditional mystery of quality in the finished product depends largely on the quality of the raw materials. It's an extremely simple fact and it's one which is confirmed by every piece hand-crafted by Francois & Co. Our stone selection includes our trademark Scagliola Stone, a material unique for its malleability and finish quality, as well as French Limestone.
