Are you watching the Chelsea Flower Show on TV at the moment? As usual, there are some absolutely spectacular garden designs to marvel at and get inspired by, some traditional, some contemporary and a few blending both to splendid effect. So what style is your garden? Modern, old fashioned, a mix of the two, or just a bit of a mess?
If it’s a mess, why not dive into some of our garden-focused blog posts for inspiration? If it’s traditional in style, with a lawn, patio and borders or a lovely profusion of typical ‘cottage garden’ flowers, we stock plenty of gorgeous traditional chimineas, big and round and friendly-looking. But if you’re looking to create a modren outdoor space, we also have some absolute gems of contemporary chimineas for you. Here are just some of them.
Contemporary chimineas for modern gardens – The Oslo
The Oslo fireplace chiminea is tall, slim and elegant, the ultimate in design simplicity. Its quirky cone shape and attractive triangular mouth make it easy as pie to use, and it works beautifully. Choose from ivory, red, teal green or black enamel, or pick a super-shiny polished steel version.
The Gota – Smooth and sleek
The Gota is made from clay and comes in a choice of fab colours, from the most deliciously rich greeny-brown glaze to fabulous oxidised yellow, red, brown and green. They’re glazed by hand so each one is completely unique. The water drop shape is really pleasing to the eye and the colours help the chim blend in with your greenery subtly, perfect when you prefer your outdoor entertainment kit low key, not right in your face. She’s a beauty, available in medium and large.
The Ellipse – Pleasingly rounded, vividly coloured
The Ellipse isn’t just a modern good-looker with its pleasingly round shape, neat lid, curvy legs and generous mouth. It’s also available in several stunning shades, each of which is a credit to any garden. Choose from a rich cranberry red, a cool blue-grey, dusty red, matt dark brown, sandstone, mottled grey, shiny black, cool beige and the most magical spring green or bright tropical blue.
The Flama – Hot, funky and dramatic
You love drama. This one will blow your mind. You’ll adore the Flama, an exceptionally bold and creative piece of Mexican chim design in the shape of a roaring flame, colourfully glazed in graduated reds and oranges. It features a generous mouth for easy lighting, and at 121 centimetres high she’s a grand, big lass. Imagine her roaring away, sitting against a green backdrop. Wow. And wow again.
Mix ‘n’ match – there’s no law says you can’t
Can you buy contemporary chimineas for a traditional garden? Of course you can. There are no rules. The chiminea police won’t arrest you if you get it wrong! The same goes for a relentlessly modern outdoor space. You can add a traditional chiminea if you like, and it’ll look great. Trust your taste, buy from us – people who care about quality, people who only sell chimineas so know all about them from every angle – and you’re sorted.
