05 Oct Hearth for the Holidays
With Thanksgiving and the entertaining season just around the corner, it is time to fill your home with pieces that bring warmth and ambience to the space. As the focal point to a room, the fireplace lights up as the weather outside grows cold. From modern style to an antique aesthetic, we have gathered some stunning hearth designs and paired them with a few of our favorite Jean-Marc Fray Antiques pieces. If you’re looking for design inspiration to draw attention to your fireplace and bring cheer to your living room for the holidays, look no further!
This modern fireplace makes a strong statement, contrasting the clean lines of the glass and metal with the natural elements outdoors. Our dynamic Stilnovo style chandelier would be the perfect addition, matching the modern materials while introducing eye-catching angles and light.
The bold architectural elements of this Art Deco space are warmed both by the fireplace, but also the curves of the lighting and furniture. These Venini style chandeliers bring a softness to the room that is mirrored in the arms of the chairs and the floor lamps. This would be a wonderful space to host a holiday event.
No hearth is complete without an exquisite antique mirror! This Louis XVI style trumeau adds depth and history, as well as brightening and elongating the room. The carved details of this fireplace are matched by the mirrors, but it would look just as wonderful juxtaposed against a more austere and simple mantel as well. This style is typical of Parisian apartments with luxurious living spaces at the end of the 19th century.
The stark white walls and fireplace bring attention to the vintage rugs and accessories. We love the concept of adding Murano glass to provide texture and shimmer while keeping the monochromatic aesthetic. These accessories always make an impactful addition to a space, whether entertaining or year round.
Nothing says comfort like a sofa near a fireplace. This bright red Chesterfield is inviting and cozy, while still maintaining a sharp style. As a mid-century piece, it can be paired with antiques or modern details.
