Thomas Hope was a Dutchman who came to Britain at the end of the 18th Century and revolutionized interior design (indeed, he is credited with coming up with the term ‘interior design’).
Like many wealthy people of his day, Hope went on a grand tour of Europe and the Middle East, bringing back with him ideas which he applied to interior furnishings and decoration.
It is only fitting therefore that Chesney’s should create a fire surround in Hope’s name.
The Thomas Hope surround is a simple design but the tapering pillars either side of the fire opening suggest the Egyptian style often used by Hope.
At home in a contemporary room, the Thomas Hope is made from creamy limestone, appropriately from Turkey or Portugal, and is available in two sizes: 36″ or 40″ fire opening.
Thomas Hope would have been proud.
