Eric Cohler for Chesney's
While many mantels embrace classical motifs (think engaged fluted columns), Eric Cohler had a different vision for his collection for Chesney’s. The designer found inspiration from the Industrial Revolution, resulting in mantels with contemporary forms and materials.
“During the Industrial Revolution of the early 19th century in Britain, Germany and the United States, a mix of manufactured materials were fused together for the first time,” said Eric. “I put myself in the place of Soane, Schinkel and Bullfinch and thought about what mantels they might have designed if they had collaborated on one residential commission liberated by technology.”
