One minute Britain is hibernation, waiting for spring. The next it’s sunny and we’re poking our heads above the proverbial parapet, keen to get outdoors and enjoy the lovely fresh air. The chiminea season has kicked off with a bang, everyone’s feeling alfresco and our new chiminea range is ready and waiting for your delectation. Plus we’ve sourced some fabulous firebowls and fine fire pits. Read on for inspiration.
New chiminea for 2016
Take a look at these. All new chiminea for 2016, all beautiful, practical and designed to deliver year after year of convivial outdoor entertainment.
The Oslo Steel Chiminea Fireplace comes in purple, green, ivory or black, a handsome contemporary item that’s as practical as it is good-looking. The clever design means that unlike most chiminea, it’s safe to stand it on grass, on your lawn. It’s made of enamelled steel, with stylish log store racks on either side, and is remarkably easy to assemble. The large version is 115cm tall and 45cm wide, perfect for smaller as well as larger outdoor spaces.
There’s no need for a fire pit to be black, although this super-smart one comes in a black version as well as funky green, contemporary purple and classic ivory. The steel bowl is enamelled for extra durability and style, and the assembly instructions are clear and simple. You also get a spark guard for extra safety, a cool charcoal grill for cooking, plus a grill tool designed specially for the job. 39cm high and 56cm wide, it’s a generous size designed to banish the chill from gardens, patios and decks.
There’s been a quiet revolution in the chiminea world. Welcome to the awesome Chimalin AFC range. They’re crafted from a very special blend of fireproof clay, a unique recipe that took years of experimentation to perfect, and the results are remarkable. Every Chimalin clay chiminea comes with a full five year guarantee against cracks through thermal shock.
That doesn’t mean non-Chimalin chiminea are a no-no. Quite the opposite. It simply means Chimalin products are a step above the rest as regards avoiding heat damage. Many of our customers have their clay chiminea for years and years without suffering thermal shock. It’s all down to sticking to the rules about setting small fires, not dirty great conflagrations!
It’s a whopper, hence the name. The Atlas Firebowl is a fabulous piece of garden entertainment kit, again made from Chimalin AFC clay. It doesn’t crack with the heat, unless you go totally crazy with your fires and consistently push things way too far, and it’s built to last and last. Perfect for people who love to spend every possible minute outdoors through spring, summer and autumn.
Easy doesn’t cover it – the assembly of this giant of a firebowl is simplicity itself. It comes with a handy and attractive chromed BBQ grill and its own steel stand, height 60cm and width 75cm.
