They are merely structural. I thought they would provide structural strength by distributing the downward force from the post to the sill. They also are a bit of decorative and provide a small protection from the fire.
fair enough :)

so, is this based on a real-world fireplace, or have you designed it yourself?

I've designed it myself. It is not exactly what I had in mind, since I have a tendency to forget details.

The fireplace mantel (I think I can call it that) is approaching the finishes. The brackets are done. Here are the pictures:

The sill is finished. It only took one afternoon. Still to do is the heavily decorated lintel. Here are the pictures so far:

That's awesome, makes me remind of all those 3ds tutorials. The level of detail is just stunning. Keep on going, it had like to see it finished.

Thanks! The model is expected to be finished in the end of this week.

Finally, the model is finished! The material is set so it looks like limestone (pinkish variant). In the future, I will post the images of the fireplace mantle integrated on a wall. Meanwhile, you can see the pictures of the finished model:

I'll make the model available as soon as I can on my website.

The material is already applied to the meshes. As you can see, the colour is slightly different and the material has no brilliance. It mimics white limestone.
