Reviews of Our Mantels

RHome – Winter 2007

“Every great room needs a great focal point.”

Best of Atlanta – 1999

We were listed among the “Best of Atlanta” in 1999.

One client called John “The Michelangelo of Mantel Makers”, then said, “I want one in the dining room, living room, master suite, library and great room.”


Southern Accents

Fireplaces give a room ‘instant character’. No other feature makes such a contribution to the architecture of a room.

Better Homes & Gardens Building Ideas

A “dream home” may be historic, new, remodeled or just in the planning stage.

Fortunately, fireplace mantels are much simpler to upgrade than many of the other architectural features of a home.


The Masco Show House

The 13-foot mirrored overmantel reflects not only the grand chandelier, but also other architectural features in the room, including a balcony and a palladium window. Of all the marvelous design ideas in this show house, the mantel was by far the most memorable focal point.

Our invitation to put a dramatic mantel in the show house came because our reputation had preceded us. When former president Jimmy Carter wanted a replica of the Oval Office mantel in the Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, he selected Mantels by Meunier!

Because of the vast availability of decorative elements which have been used in America and Europe for centuries, it is possible, with John’s craftsmanship, to reproduce the architectural designs that you want in your home…to your heart’s content.
