Adelphi asymmetrical fireplace
The original fireplace from which this design was taken was removed from a 1925 property in the North East of England. It's neat asymmetrical design in the "Style Moderne" is a classic domestic example of what we now call Art Deco.
The low round topped body of the asymmetrical fireplace has a central shelf cut into it with stick tile detail under it . This tile detail is usually contrasting tiles in an inverted stepped pyramid.
The block at one side of the fireplace forms a nice counterpoint to the somewhat retro hob on the opposite side, which is more commonly a feature of much earlier fireplaces.
Kerbed hearths are typical of tiled fireplaces from the 1920s but this asymmetric fireplace hearth design makes it stylish and distinctive .
The fireplace shelf and the flowing lines of the fireplace make it slightly harder to adapt than some of our other fireplaces but the dimensions can be varied. Increasing the height means that the other fireplace dimensions must be altered in proportion.
Almost all the examples of this fireplace that we have produced for customers have been made using our mottled "500" 4 inch tile as the main fireplace body colour but this is no longer available. Stockwell Grey and Ivory are the two favoured background colours now.
