Eldorado Stone®, creators of the world’s most believable architectural stone veneer, is proud to add The Carmela, a beautiful new model to its line of luxury Fireplace Surrounds. With its classic lines and generous mantel design, this hand-crafted surround brings an elevated sense of timeless elegance to the traditional focal point of any room—the fireplace.
The Carmela is layered with visual interest beginning with its plinth block foundation and linear legs framed with a unique bull nose detail. Its dimensions are similarly impressive. At 70 inches wide, The Carmela is scaled for larger rooms including living rooms and even restaurants and hotels. Its mantel nearly one foot deep, anchors the piece visually and provides ample space for all types of décor.
“The Eldorado Fireplace Surrounds, although substantial in appearance, are surprisingly lightweight, which make them much easier to install than other solutions,” said Eldorado Stone Vice President of Marketing Brent Spann. “With The Carmela, we have made an elegant, yet larger-scaled fireplace surround more attainable for designers, architects, and homeowners.”
The Carmela is available in two finishes. The Honed finish is smooth while the Travertine finish has a deeper, more weathered, artisanal surface. Both finishes are available in four designer colors—Oak Barrel, Summer Wheat, Oyster Shell, and Antique Castello, a distinctively aged and distressed color and finish, reminiscent of historic European architecture.
Eldorado Fireplace Surrounds are manufactured using a proprietary blend of natural limestone, minerals and other materials. Each is hand-finished and sanded using a four-step process that yields a stunning one-of-a-kind focal point. A fraction of the cost of natural limestone surrounds, the installation of these Fireplace Surrounds also takes half the time with the company’s exclusive installation processes. With profiles ranging from traditional to transitional and contemporary, there is an Eldorado Fireplace Surround style for all tastes and budgets.
The Carmela model is now available nationwide.
