Hi - The vertical surface is integral color plaster, hand troweled. Perhaps there is a local craftsman in your area that can do this? The horizontal surfaces are steel.

Dan. Do you know what color was used to get that warm rich tone to the fireplace? Thanks.

It is custom made of patinated steel. Perhaps there is a local craftsman in your area that can create something like this for you ?

Is there a finish on the mantel beam? it looks like a gold?

It is patinated steel, that is similar to a rust finish. The gold appearance is from the lights reflection.

Thanks but when I do a search I find no "par lamps"? is that what they are called?

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
Unsure about your search, but the URL included in my first answer links directly to the WAC Lighting model # MO-024, and indicates the options for color and for lamps... Good luck.

Hi - it is custom. A steel i beam with patinated finish. A local fine metal worker can recreate the look for you.

I don't know what was used in the picture, but Flux Lighting makes a Snakelight Canopy fixture that comes in 24 and 48 inch lengths, and in black, white, and nickel. It looks similar to what is shown.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Inspired Ways to Refresh Your Mantel Now
Let lighting do the talking. Perhaps the only change needed to your mantel is the way in which it's lit. Make a statement with interesting pendants or sconces in pairs or other repetitions.
