    I think we're going to do this exact same fireplace surround / mantel. How is the mantel affixed to the wall?
  • hadleysolomon
    And how high off the ground is it mounted?

    This was an art piece that the client already owned, but I believe it was an artist in the Austin area. I will see if I can find more info in my records. Thanks!

    Thank you! I would love to know. This piece looks fantastic over the fireplace.

    The sectional was from Ethan Allen. I don't recall the name of it off hand :-) but if you showed the picture to someone at Ethan Allen they would probably know (it was purchased within the last 2 years)

    Sorry for the late reply. The color is Benjamin Moore, Platnium Ivory (HC-39).

    Just realized there was a typo on my previous reply - it is Putnam Ivory (sorry about that!). Still Benjamin Moore HC-39

    Hi - this particular wood mantel was built out of walnut by the custom cabinet maker who made the entire wall of shelving/ cabinets. I have done this a few times, always using a local wood craftsman. That might be the best place to start if you are wanting something very specific. Sorry I can't be of more help!

    It's a white limestone veneer that we purchased through a local Austin quarry

    The artwork over the fireplace is fabulous! Can you tell us the artist?

    Since Laura Burton is an interior designer (beautiful work, by the way) and not a fireplace expert, I can field this one.

    The fireplace in the photo is an open front, vented, non-circulating (no fan) wood burning fireplace with gas logs installed. The only heat you will get is radiant heat (just like you would with a wood fire). The question you pose is not applicable to this situation.

    On the other hand, since circulated convective heat naturally rises, there is no point raising anything, as the heated air will rise naturally. If anything, you would want forced air to come into the room as low as possible, not raised.
