DHS Designs specializes in hand-carved French fireplace mantels from the 16th to the 19th century. Made of limestone, the mantels—all taken from Loire Valley châteaux—are displayed in the company's two showrooms, one of which is in an old dairy barn. Also on offer is a very sharp selection of 18th- to 20th-century garden ornaments. Mantels: $10,000-$75,000; garden pieces: $500-$125,000.
