Good news: you do not! In fact, our mantels have enough depth to look gorgeous even when installed against an existing wall without any fireplace opening. If you want extra depth to fit a large electric or liquid fuel firebox, you can easily make an opening in your existing wall.
All of our mantels are hand-carved from solid European marble. No lookalike products such as cast or molded stone of any kind are used on any of our mantels. We use the real deal only!
Absolutely! Marmoso is all about custom and making the vision of a designer or homeowner a reality. For custom measurements on one of our existing designs, simply select Custom Size on any mantel page when requesting a quote. For custom designs, submit a Custom Request with a brief description of the design you have in mind and one of our design specialists will be in touch.
Marble is a natural stone and porous material. We recommend sealing your fireplace to protect it from spills and stains. Please consult your installer to help select and apply the right sealer. Please note that your fireplace may appear wet due to water used during the manufacturing process and during installation. We recommend allowing at least one week after installation for your fireplace to dry before sealing.
Placing an order starts with browsing our collections online and requesting a free quote or custom design - no deposit or payment needed. From there on, a design specialist will create a sales order for you and help you through every step of the process.
Most mantels are ready for shipping within 6 weeks. Before preparing your order for shipping, we will send you pictures for sign-off. Freight shipping transit times to the U.S. take around 35 days.
