More than simply a source of heat and comfort, a focal point fireplace helps to create a more homely space. Modern stove design has developed beyond the typical inglenook installation to offer an array of statement styles to enhance your living space.

With so many options to choose from, selecting the right appliance is not only about what fuel type is best for your home, but also what suits your décor. Take a look at these state-of-the-art options.

Floating gas stove

Taking its inspiration from contemporary Nordic styles, the Gazco Loft gas stove is a beautiful balance of classic and contemporary. What makes this clever piece of kit even better is that can be wall-hung as a floating installation to showcase its tall firebox, matt steel case and reflective black glass framing. It’s not just about good looks though – thanks to an A-rated efficiency class, it doesn’t compromise on performance either.

Suspended electric fire

For those seeking something with serious wow-factor, the Orbit electric fire from Onyx is a super sleek focal point fireplace that’s suspended from the ceiling. The pendant-style stove is ideal for open-living spaces and homes with vaulted ceilings. What makes this clever design even more impressive is that it can be rotated up to 340 degrees, allowing you to enjoy the exposed flames from almost anywhere in the room.

Minimalist design

Should a wood burning stove be your preference, the ME circular stove from Nordpeis combines classic functionality with a minimalist design that really stands out from the crowd. This log burner is Ecodesign compliant – meaning it runs within the strictly legislated parameters for efficiency and emissions – and offers a host of mounting options, from pedestals and log stores to benches, and even the option to hang it from the ceiling.

Media wall fireplace

Designed to be the perfect centrepiece of a media wall, the state-of-the-art eReflex 150RW by Gazco is a real head turner. With heat and flame visuals that can be controlled independently, it’s a great choice for those seeking something that can be used all-year round, with or without heat. These electric fires come with a remote handset, but you can also control them via your smartphone thanks to an innovative app.
