In the waiting area, the client wanted a Tuscan-inspired fireplace. Paragon Fabrication created the fireplace surround, mantle and over mantle in the fabrication shop, and installed on-site around the electric and support framing. The surround, mantle and over mantle were made out of wood framing and high-density foam, painted and aged to match the interior design aesthetic. The surround and flue were created in separate pieces to accommodate the installation process. Once in place on-site, the joints were mudded and the paint was touched up, with added fake smoke soot to age the look of the fireplace.
Additionally, a small bench was created just outside of the changing rooms, with similar construction and finish to the fireplace, made out of wood frame and high-density foam to match the mud work of the fireplace.
