About the Suspended Mantel
Custom-designed for a historic Seattle residence in the Montlake neighborhood, this piece is made to accommodate candles (tapers or votives) at the surface of a historic fireplace. In order to protect the original tile on the fireplace and gain the functionality of a real mantle, this piece was designed to hang from the casework above, alleviating the need to fasten through the tile work. Contemporary in its streamlined details and proportions, this piece nevertheless seems to be as original to the house as the fireplace itself. The Suspended Mantel is easily removed to restore the fireplace to its original aesthetic.
