Fireplace Screens

A fireplace screen should be an expression, not just hardware

A fireplace screen must foremost prevent sparks from escaping the fireplace. But it should be acknowledged that it becomes the focal point of the fireplace just as the fireplace is the focal point of the room. It needs to have sufficient decorative interest to help make the fireplace attractive without the fire burning, as is most often the case.

Screen Design Hints:

  • An arched top, three panel screen in front of a rectangular fireplace opening adds character and softens the square lines of the opening.
  • A screen with an intricate design can add much to the beauty of a fireplace.
  • Andirons or a decorative grate along with a screen can make your fireplace truly unforgettable.
  • Classic French Fireplace Screen

    “American craftsmanship is alive and well” This fire screen will come to be an heirloom, not because of its price but because of its timeless style, exquisite craftsmanship and the artful combination of design, form and function. It’s unique, artistic presentation sets it apart from all the pretenders. It is handcrafted of the finest and hardiest solid brass and can stand proudly as the centerpiece of your hearth or in harmony with other similarly created components.  It is available in the size and finish noted but can be produced in short order in any size and in several alternate finishes. As a design hint: The addition of andirons in conjunction with this screen will greatly improve the overall appearance of your fireplace. Many examples of this concept are available in the “Inspirations” section of this website.
