Ebben & Yorke are proud to have an enviable reputation for the design, supply and installation of the finest bespoke stone fireplaces. We specialise in Portland stone, Bath stone and Yorkshire limestone but are quite happy to produce fireplaces in other stones.
Every Ebben & Yorke fireplace is bespoke and hand made here in The Midlands using only the finest natural Yorkshire limestone, Portland stone or Bath stone. We do NOT use reconstituted stone or any other concrete based products. Our fireplaces are British-made using British stone.
From your initial design meeting with Adrian through to the final installation of your new fireplace you can expect the highest standards of workmanship.
Below are some examples of the stone fireplaces supplied and installed for previous Ebben & Yorke customers.
Once you have instructed Ebben & Yorke to design and supply your new fireplace you will need an initial meeting with our designer Adrian either on site or at our Sutton Coldfield showroom. He will be happy to advise on all aspects and ideas that you may have. It is always helpful to create a mood board or some pins from Pinterest to steer the design process in the right direction. The internet is a powerful tool and Pinterest, Instagram and Google images are great ways to get different fireplace ideas.
More about Portland Stone
Portland stone is a limestone from the Tithonian stage of the Jurassic period quarried on the Isle of Portland, Dorset. The quarries consist of beds of white-grey limestone separated by chert beds. It has been used extensively as a building stone throughout the British Isles, notably in major public buildings in London such as St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
More about Bath Stone
Bath Stone is an oolitic limestone comprising granular fragments of calcium carbonate. Originally obtained from the Combe Down and Bathampton Down Mines under Combe Down, Somerset, England, its warm, honey colouring gives the World Heritage City of Bath, England its distinctive appearance. An important feature of Bath Stone is that it is a ‘freestone’, so-called because it can be sawn or ‘squared up’ in any direction, unlike other rocks such as slate, which forms distinct layers. Bath Stone has been used extensively as a building material throughout southern England, for churches, houses, and public buildings such as railway stations.
