Stovax Kensington Insert Fireplace
As a reaction to the overtly ornate style of the Baroque period, and influenced by Roman architecture seen during their ‘Grand Tour’, aristocratic Georgians developed a taste for what became known as Neo-Classical designs where elegance and symmetry became emblematic.
The Stovax Kensington Insert fireplace characterises this era perfectly. The only difference is that today you can choose to have a gas fire complete with remote control if you do not wish to burn logs or coal.
Opening (WxH): 660x749mm
Insert fireplaces are so called because they have built-in firebacks and are designed to be inserted into chimney openings measuring approximately 36” x 36” (915 x 915mm) or larger. In appearance, these can be either completely cast or cast with slots for decorative tiles. The former are generally earlier designs whilst cast iron fireplaces incorporating two vertical ceramic panels became particularly fashionable from the mid-1880s onwards.
