Don’t even think of ‘hiding away’ a stove in your home. From 100-year-old reclaimed wood burners to the latest designs, a stove can be the focal point of any room

Now, when we start to talk about quality and workmanship it’s more than possible that you are thinking about times past, but with stoves this doesn’t ring true at all.

For instance, at Warfield Stoves their traditional and contemporary wood and multi-fuel stoves are designed and built to the highest standards. Free standing stoves are a magnificent addition to any room, but if space is an issue an inset stove is a smart choice. We love the sleek and modern RIVA series, where viewing the flames is a a treat in itself, but traditionalists can choose a model with a cast iron door.

Other choices include gas, electric or even LPG.

You’ll find Warfield Stoves & Fires at Moss End Garden Centre, Warfield, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG42 6EJ. Tel: 01344 456486,


Traditional style

For those who fancy a truly traditional stove, it’s possible to buy a fully renovated and working wood burner that could be more than a century old. Among those offering such treats are The Victorian Emporium of a small team of period house enthusiasts.

Based in Linslade, Bedfordshire, they come across interesting items while renovating period properties.

Fancy a French Monopole wood burning stove made by Deville and Co around 1910? It has enamel with nickel plated detail and is decorated with a roses and plants design. Expect to pay £1,080. A circa 1900 reclaimed and fully working British wood burning stove is priced at £780.
