Love the stone! Is it stone-cladding? Real or man made? Thanks!

This is reclaimed exterior stone. They make some manufactured stone products that do a decent job of simulating this look, but nothing quite like the real stone. Thanks.

I'm curious. How did you mount this? What are those brackets?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A 1744 French fireback gives visitors a hint about the antique finds that await inside. "When my client sees something that she likes, she buys it, even if she doesn’t have a place for it. She keeps all these antiques and architectural pieces in a garage, and then picks and chooses from them when she’s doing a project," says Murphy.
