The classical fireplace

Fireplaces create a feeling of warmth and coziness in the largest of homes. And while Texas weather makes a fireplace more of a amenity than a necessity, an open fire gives any gathering a relaxed feel and creates an elegant focal point for the room.

The fireplace at St. John’s residence, by Larry E. Boerder Architect, is classical design at its best. Like a little black dress, it’s always in style.


The fireplace at the Highland Park residence, again by Larry E Boerder, with Quinlan Terry of England, features classic Corinthian columns. Interiors by Mlinaric Henry & Zervudachi Ltd bring the firm’s London sensibility to Dallas.

No collection of classical fireplaces in Sebastian-built homes would be complete without Preston Road by architect Richard Giegengack of Washington DC, and Dallas’ DC Broadstone. This massively scaled fireplace with its walnut and mahogany milwork commands your attention the moment you enter the room.
