Millstone Designs has its roots in the fireplace industry. Whilst worktops now make up much of our businesses, a good portion of the work we do is still based around fireplaces – from made-to-measure hearths for private and trade customers to bespoke fire surrounds. Here are a couple of projects we have been involved in:

Slate surround
We work with a range of different stone, but slate is always a popular choice. This surround was made in Italian honed slate, giving a beautifully smooth matt finish.

We created this honed slate surround for a customer in Southend, Essex. Fitted with the tiles and log burner and set against the blue walls, it looks amazing.

Grey quartz surround

We’ve been working with one of our retail customer’s in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, to create a fire surround for one of their clients. They wanted something modern, yet still in-keeping with their period home. They selected this contemporary pale grey quartz and we worked with them to develop the design. We are particularly proud of the roses which were carved by hand, and which are reflected in the fluting on the legs.
