<strong>Expanding the Mantel</strong>

When Xylem, a cabinet and architectural millwork shop, was called in to upgrade this room with built-in bookshelves, it had an opportunity to expand and highlight the fireplace mantel. While the eye is drawn to the center with the traditional mantel and geometric mirror above, shelves on either side provide additional "wings" to display books and decorative items.
