Whether your home is styled in a contemporary or traditional decor, the Edinburgh Corbel is the perfect fire surround thanks to its classically-inspired styling and modern craftsmanship.
With a choice of woods and finishes, including solid oak and solid pine, and waxed and unwaxed, the Edinburgh Corbel, as its name suggests, stands apart from other wooden fireplace surrounds thanks to its exquisitely designed corbels, which sit atop the surround’s legs, supporting the solid, robust mantel.
The styling of the corbels is such that it creates an immediate visual focus, echoing the acanthus leaves that were common in classical Greek architecture; a style which was revived and became popular during the Victorian period.
In addition to the corbels, the Edinburgh Corbel features fine bolection beading on the shelf edge. This raised detailing adds a subtle extra layer of visual garnishment to the surround, without overwhelming the overall sleek look of the Edinburgh Corbel.
Glance down at the bottom of the fire surround and you’ll find a pair of solid plinths (also called foot blocks) which create a firm physical and visual footing.
Explore the image gallery on this page and you’ll see how solid, clean and sleek the Edinburgh Corbel’s legs and mantle are. They act as the perfect counterweight to the fine detailing of the surround’s corbels, bolection beading and plinths, to create a visually and stylistically-balanced fire surround.
In short, the Edinburgh Corbel is perfect if you want a Victorian-inspired fire surround that isn’t overly covered in detail; which is the case with some other Victorian surrounds.
Aside from its robust construction, the Edinburgh Corbel is easy to assemble, consisting of only three parts, making it simple for DIYers and trades people alike to install.
So, whether you’re looking for a waxed Edinburgh Corbel which is ready to install, or an unwaxed Edinburgh Corbel to which you can add your own personal finish, the team at Renaissance At Home will be happy to answer any pre-purchase questions you may have.
