Brushed steel fender seats
The brushed steel fender seat has a matt, neutral, stainless steel finish: It sits happily around a traditional fireplace, often bringing out the grain in a marble hearth or mantle.
It feels just as at home around more contemporary fireplaces too, and is popular for townhouses and flats.
Brushed steel is available in either the formed base or the slightly smaller standard base. It's lacquered so there's no need to polish.
The fender seat shown left has a formed base, with steel collars. The seat is suede.
The price of a brushed steel fender seat varies depending on which extras you have (eg, deep buttoned seats, twisted uprights) and the size, but expect a bottom line, including vat and delivery, of around £1296 for the formed base, or £1104 for the standard base.
Brushed steel uprights with oak base
As an alternative to the steel base, choose a shaped oak base, but keeping steel uprights. The oak can be stained to a light, medium or dark finish. The picture left, show a light oak base with brushed steel.
As with all the metals, an oak base is a popular alternative if you’re keen to minimise the metal on show.
These are the base shapes for the steel fenders:
