Discover some of our bespoke creations

Not only can fibrous plaster be used to make cornices, ceiling ornamentation and hanging lights, but it can also serve to create bespoke cladding for fireplaces. One of its many technical benefits is its fire-stopping ability.

Fibrous plaster is an extremely malleable material, which allows our ornamental plasterers to produce meticulously crafted decorations and even hearths featuring astonishing curves.

Fireplace: A masonry construction used to light a fire in a home, comprising an open hearth and a chimney inside the wall, leading outside where the smoke is drawn and evacuated. 

Fireplaces first appeared in France in the 11th century. Initially installed only at abbeys and châteaux, they gradually made their way into private homes. Very soon, they became an essential fixture for cooking and heating, and also served topromote social bonds.

It wasn’t until 1965 though that fireplaces became trendy.

Nowadays, fireplaces are real symbols of togetherness warmth and are also decorative elements in their own right.
