    Brilliantly ‘aude-acious’. That fireplace inspires its own post: ‘Aude to a cheminée with hearth…’ 😉

    • Isn’t it? I like the fact it’s completely asymmetric and has evolved rather than been designed for aesthetics. That pillar is a later add-on but it suits it perfectly .
      I’m all for adding architectural pieces either for practicality or ambience

    Are they bold? They are extremely respectful of the original, which is terrific. I don’t know. Maybe it is bold to play it straight, not contrast the old architecture with modern furniture.
