Classic Live Edge

With the bark removed, a live edge mantel will make a statement in any home — it can perfectly complement rustic decor or add a pop of interest to a more contemporary design.

Square-Cut Shape

As an alternative to live edge, homeowners and designers may prefer a square-cut, rectangular mantel, or one with minimal natural aspects to its shape. Ranging from three to six inches thick, these mantels are solid blocks of wood that not only add impact above a fireplace but also create a sturdy shelf for displaying artwork or sculpture.
