Fashions and fads come and go, but there will always be fans of retro and vintage themes in the home.
Perhaps, like us, you’ve been hooked on the 60s styling of Netflix smash “The Queen’s Gambit”, and took great inspiration from the vintage living space inhabited by lead character Beth Harmon.
Maybe you’re in the midst of renovating a Victorian style property, and ensuring the traditional styles of that period remain in your home.
To top off the look, and provide some warmth too, you’ll want something that incorporates the feel of a vintage fire or vintage stove, but with modern efficiency.
Retro fires and retro stoves with contemporary themes can be few and far between, but here we have rounded up some favourites from our range, with products from Flavel Gas Fires, AGA and Hunter Stoves.
The Flavel Strata with its groovy curvature and colour schemes has a timeless, but retro, feel like few other gas fires on the market. The Cream option especially really harks back to the swinging 60s and for anyone looking to top off a vintage styled living space we could absolutely recommend this product.
This post isn’t all about retro fires and retro stoves. Traditional stoves never wane in popularity and it’s easy to see why. Their clean and classic matt black aesthetic fits extremely well in period properties, whilst ensuring you remain snug and warm within. This beauty from AGA is a prime example of that.
By it’s very definition: “a revival of or renewed interest in something” the Renaissance delivers plenty of vintage vibes. According to Flavel: ” Its stylish retro design is matched by its forward thinking efficiency, simplicity of installation and impressive 5.2kW heat output.” Sounds absolutely idea to us.
A truly unique looking product from Flavel once again. This bold outset gas fire features prominent front legs, brass grille and a smouldering coal effect, with intricate detailing on the front for added measure. For a stand out fireplace, look no further.
Priding themselves on excellent craftmanship, the Herald range from Hunter Stoves stands for both quality of design and manufacturing. Again, this particular model brings a traditional feel, but with the added aesthetic quality of the double doors, which truly make this a stand out model for a vintage styled living space.
We end our blog back where we started, with yet another retro range from Flavel Gas Fires. Aside from having a brilliant name, the Misermatic, once again delivers an array of colour schemes to fit your home and truly is a blast from the past, in particular the timeless teak finish.
