There's nothing as warm and welcoming as a crackling fire in an open fireplace. The dancing flames can lift your spirits and melt away the most stressful day. But to truly be part of the home, a fireplace must warm our hearts even when there is no fire in the grate. Pearl does not treat the mantel as trim or molding but as a beautiful piece of furniture that is the focal point of the entire room, the emotional core. It represents roots, heritage and tradition. Furniture is arranged around it, precious treasures are displayed on it and it provides balance and stability to the entire room. The Monticello is named for President Jefferson's elegant home outside of Charlottesville, VA. This regal mantel is made from medium density fiberboard also known as MDF and features impressive dental moldings and appliques that will instantly become the focal point of your room. MDF is a composite wood made of wood waste products. Mantel ships in 3 pieces; 2 legs and 1 header. The legs attach easily to the header with nuts and bolts. The appliques are packaged separately in the carton. Mitered hanger board assembly included for easy installation as well as a 3 piece mitered scribe molding set to hide any gaps after installation.
