It is the first piece of furniture in any home. There is 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 Lindon mantel shelf is sophisticated yet easy going. The beautiful graduated design will add flair to your flame. Handcrafted from Asian hardwood veneers over MDF paint and stain grade. Mitered hanger board assembly included for easy installation. Light sanding and filling are recommended before paint or stain is applied.
