Baroque & Bolection Fireplaces

Showing 1–36 of 49 results

Thornhill Galleries’ selection of Baroque and bolection fireplaces exemplify the contrasting beauty of excess and simplicity. The Baroque style was exuberant – its design elements were ornate and exaggerated, with a sense of grand theatricality. Fire surrounds were often characterised by S and C scrolls on the jambs which suggested a sense of movement. The English Baroque was slightly more restrained than the rest of Europe. The style’s most prominent exemplar was the design portfolio of Sir Christopher Wren, who most notably used the bolection style prominently in his work. As opposed to the opulence of the more widespread Baroque style, bolection serves as a simplistic rather than overbearing embellishment. It enhances a mantle piece with the use of straight lines and embraces a restraint that is both timeless and easy on the eye. For more information on our Baroque or bolection fireplaces, feel free to give us a call.
