From the Manufacturer
It’s the first piece of furniture in any home. There’s nothing as warm and welcoming as a crackling fire in an open fireplace. The dancing flames can lift your spirits and melt away the most stressful day in a matter of minutes. But to truly be part of the home, a fireplace must warm our hearts even when there is no fire in the grate. Pearl does not treat the mantel as trim or molding but as a beautiful piece of furniture that is the focal point of the entire room, the emotional core. It represents roots, heritage and tradition. Furniture is arranged around it, precious treasures are displayed on it, and it provides balance and stability to the entire room. Pearl Mantels features fine furniture quality, stunning details and classic designs that will enhance any decor. The chunky beam design of the Lexington mantel shelf is a reminder of yesteryear bringing an easy rustic feeling to your fireplace or anywhere else in your home. Made of pine with rustic distressing. This piece of furniture is handcrafted to reflect old world distressed styling. Mitered hanger board assembly included for easy installation. Top Shelf Length: 72″ Bottom Base Length: 72″ Top Shelf Depth: 10″ Bottom Base Depth: 10″ Overall Height: 8″ Weight 45 pounds. Look for the pearl inlay that graces the right hand side of the shelf as proof that you have received an authentic Pearl Mantel. Inlay is masked so that you may easily paint or stain around it.
