The Mason

The Mason

Numerous small towns throughout New England still display the charm of the town common that is surrounded by houses, many dating to the colonial period and which are significant to the character and image of New England. Paneling in the earlier houses may have covered all four walls of the main rooms. But by the middle of the eighteenth century, paneling would have been used on only the wall that held the fireplace.

The horizontal and vertical elements of the Mason are carefully balanced. The three raised panels above the shelf are aligned with the lower panel, as well as the opening for the firebox and facing. The ogee profile of the panels, and the rectangular outline visually pull the upper and middle areas together. The cove molding at the cornice is consistent with the broad cove molding below the shelf, which further unifies the top and middle sections.

The Mason can be customized to suit the height of your ceiling. It can also be expanded to incorporate paneling that will be specially crafted for the entire wall that the fireplace is on, or even the entire room.
