Perfect for contemporary or traditionally-styled homes alike, the Edinburgh Corbel is a fire surround which combines modern craftsmanship with classically-inspired styling.
Available in a range of different woods and finishes, including solid oak and solid pine (either waxed or unwaxed), the Edinburgh Corbel stands out from other fire surrounds thanks to the finely-crafted corbels which adorn the top of the surround’s legs, supporting the mantel.
Make no mistake, the styling of the corbels on the Edinburgh is such that they create an immediate visual focus, being reminiscent of the acanthus leaves that were common in classical Greek architecture; a style which was revived and became ubiquitous during the Victorian era.
Aside from the corbels, the Edinburgh Corbel also features fine bolection beading on the shelf edge. This raised detailing adds an additional layer of stylistic depth to the fire surround, providing further detail, but without overwhelming the overall clean look of the Edinburgh Corbel.
Cast your eyes down to the foot of the Edinburgh Corbel and your gaze will be met by a pair of plinths (also known as foot blocks) which both physically and visually ‘anchor’ the fire surround.
Scroll through the image gallery on this page and you’ll gain a clearer idea of the sleek simplicity of the Edinburgh Corbel’s legs and mantle. Their spartan minimalism perfectly contrasts with the elegant detailing of the surround’s corbels, bolection beading and plinths to create a wooden fireplace surround which is perfectly aesthetically balanced.
In other words, if you’re looking for a Victorian-style fireplace surround which has subtle detailing, then the Edinburgh Corbel is the perfect surround for you.
Of course, the styling of the Edinburgh Corbel will perfectly complement a wide range of Victorian cast iron fireplace inserts, of which you’ll find many fine examples here at Carron.
What’s more, aside from being exceptionally well made, the Edinburgh Corbel is easy to assemble in only three parts. Perfect for DIYers and trades people alike.
