The Home is the empire. there is no peace more delightful than one's own fireplace - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Rococo & Louis

For those looking to mirror the romanticism and elegance of Georgian architecture and interiors, there are a number of fireplaces and inserts with typically neoclassical or Adam’s style decoration – look out for urns, neat foliage decoration and bell flower swags or bell flower pendants on the jambs (legs). However, be aware that these motifs can crop up in Victorian and Edwardian fireplaces too; the stylisation and the proportions are often the truest signifier of age. Another typically Georgian style is the bullseye, which features roundel motifs at each end black and reeded jambs.
