Following their recent article, 'Demand for Antique Fireplaces Growing in Britain," (published on 14 April 2014 by Journalism.co.uk) owner Owen Pacey of Renaissance London claims the number of enquires from interior designers regarding their authentic and beautifully detailed Victorian pieces has risen dramatically.
Renaissance London claims more people are opting for Victorian style period homes for their high ceilings, ornate cornices, huge bay windows and the all-important elegant fireplace.
The Victorian interior design style dates from 1837 to 1901 and was an era of great change for property. The introduction of mass production meant that items could be easily reproduced, and no longer restricted to just the wealthy members of society. A range of styles from the Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movement, which took off in England in 1810, along with strong influences from Europe all contributed to the luxurious and opulent feel of Victorian features.
