Nothing inspires romance like an open fire. It provides warmth and can be designed by Fireplaces NZ to complement the style of your home

Cosy ambience


Childhood memories of sitting huddled on cold winter nights around the fire fills you with warmth and longing. It is these family times we remember when making a fire an important feature in our own home today.

As well as providing cosy winter warmth, an Edwardian, Henty, Olde Charm or Carina style fireplace from Fireplaces NZ can complement the style of your decor and give any room character, says director Jan Broekhoff.

"Our fireplaces can be simple, or historically accurate to blend into the existing architecture of your home. The Edwardian and Henty fireplaces represent an ideal combination of old and new," he says.

The Henty, with distinctive arched fascia and lion's head motif, gives optimum fire-size and vision. The Edwardian, featured, incorporates a large rectangular firebox to maintain optimum fire vision.

The Olde Charm range, also featured, has a heat exchange surface area of 4m2. This means exceptional heat output is attainable. Four fitting options suit most homes and decor styles, says Jan Broekhoff.


Fireplaces NZ's extensive range also includes gas options. Accessories such as log retainers, firescreens and rear duct heating are available, along with expert advice on the best fire to suit your needs.
