Art Nouveau Fireplaces
Period Reproduction Art Nouveau Style in Cast Iron

The Art Nouveau period ran from around 1880 to 1910 and was the first 20th century modern style. It began in Paris, hence the name, in French - "New Art". Unlike most previous design movements it did not look backwards to previous historical periods for its inspiration … it preferred not to revive past styles, but took ideas from things around, particularly the natural world.

It had two major forms: in continental Europe the style was predominantly curvilinear (curving lines) and was typical of posters by Alphonse Mucha, glasswork by Louis Tiffany, the architecture of Victor Horta and the jewellery of René Lalique.

The rectilinear (straight or square lines) which was preferred in Britain, had a more austere, linear look which was typified by the Glasgow School of Art, and especially the designs of artists like Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This style was also preferred in Vienna, Austria and developed into its own sub-branch, which became known as the Vienna Secession.

The Paris, a European Art Nouveau style fireplace

The feminine opulence and extravagance of much of European Art Nouveau was often considered too un-British for local tastes, and the style was widely unpopular for many years, and the more robust masculine rectilinear forms were more favoured. However, this the more florid style has recently seen a widespread revival of interest and has become very collectable.

Its exuberant flowing lines, often based on the interlaced and interwoven tendrils of plants, and deep rich colours found in fabrics, stained glass and tiles have struck an accord with contemporary taste.

Both the curvilinear and rectilinear forms are evidenced in our collection of Cast Iron Fireplaces and Fascias, and we believe that our styles bear all the marks of character and quality found in the originals, exhibiting that same attention to detail and high levels of craftsmanship that typified the original Art Nouveau movement.

We can offer, not only all-in-one Combination fireplaces like those illustrated on the upper part of this page, but examples with Inset Tube-Lined Tiles or as Arched Inserts.

We urge you to take a moment to look at examples in large format image Gallery, where the quality has to be seen to be believed, and where we are confident that we can offer an option for virtually every taste.
