The Claire Cast Stone Fireplace Mantel is one of our most popular designs. For being a larger sized mantel it still embodies a delicate appeal with its gentle feminine curves and detail. The smooth lines create a romantic charm while the natural stone facade portrays both its rigidity and delicacy. Comparably, the Chardonnay also offers a bold side with feminine details in its gentle yet sometimes powerful fruitful tones. With a smooth drinkability and relaxed quality, Chardonnay is perfect for enjoying Valentine’s day in the comforting arms of your sweetheart.
Design Style: French. Opulence. Wine Pairing: Muscato – Light, smooth, bright, and playful, with sweetness levels ranging from mild to intense. Enjoy both smooth and sparkling options.
The delicate Canterbury Marble Fireplace Mantel is perfectly flirtatious and sweet with its elegant carvings, branch/leaf reliefs and “knotted” central detail. This unique element can be symbolic for the metaphysical connection you share with your soul mate- being eternally bonded together. Crafted from beautiful marble, the carvings take on an entirely new persona with the natural veining and sheen that occurs within this elegant stone. The sweet, intensely fruitful, yet playful notes of the Muscato will set the perfect tone for a lovely evening in front of this opulent mantel.
