Here are pictures of modern luxury in fireplace design by The Buckingham Group. From traditional to contemporary, a well designed fireplace will always warm the heart.
A new custom mantle by Vintage Mantle Company of Tulsa, Oklahoma coupled with a split slate tile fireplace surround from Emser Tile covers the original red brick fireplace. Resting on a color coordinated hearth and riser it has converted the fireplace from a boring feature to a focal point in the living room.
The ceiling of the family room was raised to ten feet. A double French Vault ceiling was created and outlined by Knotty Alder decorative beams. A cast stone fireplace from Stone Legends of Dallas Texas created a fireplace focal point.
A cast stone fireplace, custom fabricated by Stone Legends of Dallas Texas, transformed the fireplace from ugly to beautiful. A double French vault ceiling took advantage of attic space above the room. Oak hardwood floors replaced the carpet. Custom drapes from Leslie Elliot Interiors complement the traditional club chairs in this revitalized master bedroom.
Eighteen-foot ceilings in this spacious living room called out for a major focal point. A new Isokern fireplace constructed of volcanic rock was installed. The custom cast stone mantle & over mantle cover the Isokern components. Complete with intricate details the carvings inevitably lead one's eyes upward to the knotty alder ceiling. A custom carpet covers the center of the traditional oak floor.
New windows and doors were installed along with new LED lighting. An overall view of the finished great room is enhanced by the light filtering through the new bank of Pella windows and doors on the west side of the home. The 16-ft tall cast stone fireplace was added to provide a major focal point. A custom chandelier hangs from the Knotty Alder ceiling, while decorative knotty Alder Lock Miter Beams separate the ceiling into three distinct sections.
The existing fireplace surround was removed and furred out to give added dimension to the fireplace surround. It was then covered with a Cross Cut Travertine Tile from Visions Tile & Stone. The ceiling was raised to ten feet with a double French Vault taking advantage of available attic space above. Pella Architectural fixed clear view windows were added for additional light. An oak hardwood floor and custom furniture completed the transformation.
A new fireplace insert and mantle with a travertine marble surround were added to the living room wall. Twin bookcases provide space for the storage of the homeowners’ collection of rare books. Base cabinets provide storage for their grandchildren’s toys. This combination not only provides function but has taken a wall from boring to beautiful creating a much-needed focal point for this room.
A custom fireplace mantle by Vintage Mantle Company of Tulsa, Oklahoma adds architectural interest to this fireplace conversion. Coupled with a split slate tile fireplace surround from Emser Tile it has converted the fireplace from a boring feature to a focal point in the living room.
A beautiful cast-stone fireplace mantle from Stone Legends of Dallas, Texas anchors one end of this elaborate outdoor patio. A true masonry fireplace provides warmth for the owner and his guests for fireside chats on cool nights.
The original red brick fireplace was demolished and removed. Massively disproportionate to the space, the old fireplace protruded into the room commanding attention for all the wrong reasons. Faux marble vinyl was replaced with warm continuous hardwood flooring. And today, a black & white granite surround, with matching hearth, is flanked by fluted pilasters and topped off with a custom mantle. To homeowners' delight, the setting is crisp, clean and elegant.
A custom walnut mantle by Jay Rambo Cabinets of Tulsa, Oklahoma compliments the black soap stone fireplace surround and hearth. This installation coordinates with the adjoining kitchen and was installed by Midwest Marble of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A custom walnut fireplace mantle by Vintage Mantle Company of Tulsa, Oklahoma and adjoining walnut bookcases by Woodstock Woodworking of Tulsa, Oklahoma is featured at the end of this living room. This combination replaced a massive red brick fireplace that dominated the space providing a closed-in feeling in the living room.
While reviewing the original drawings for this home we found that Adah Robinson a renowned Tulsa-based designer and teacher was responsible for this unique fireplace design. We carefully restored some of the crumbling brick and complimented the fireplace with two original oil paintings that are highlighted by led recessed ceiling fixtures. Custom baseboards, crown and picture moldings were installed so that they complied in detail and dimensions to the original drawings.
A cast-stone fireplace by Tulsa Castings replaced the original red brick fireplace surround. Moldings were milled to meet the specifications of the original drawings for this 1928 Maple Ridge home. Pella casement windows bring light into the basement through the reconstructed window wells. A Travertine tile floor completed the restoration of this 1500-sf basement remodel.
A new zero-clearance fireplace was installed at the end of this spacious living room. For the sake of simplicity, large Travertine marble slabs were installed to cover the new fireplace chaise. Bookcases with mirror covered backs and ½” thick plate glass shelves were added to provide depth and dimension to the room. A custom fireplace screen, fireplace tool holder, and tools were fabricated specifically for this project by Ernie Wiemann Metalcraft of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
An open floor plan allows guests to intermingle at social events. A cast stone fireplace with an original oil painting above serves as a focal point in the great room. The beauty of the paintings in both rooms is brought to life using framing projector lights that are hidden in the ceiling. The stacked moldings that are visible in this photo are carried throughout the center of the home.
Pella Designer Series casement windows, outfitted with interior mini blinds, were installed for comfort and convenience. A cast concrete fireplace mantle and surround with a linen finish, manufactured by Solus Fireplaces embraces a Napoleon HD35 fireplace insert. Complete with a remote-controlled flame it provides a romantic setting in the room. A ten-foot-tall wall of split slate from Emser Tile & Stone adds both beauty and visual interest.
