Paul Chesney fireplace and wood burning stove expert and Managing Director of Chesney’s Fireplaces has provided a step by step account, of how to build a long lasting log or coal fire. Stage 1 – Place several fire-lighters on the base of the grate. An alternative to the traditional petroleum lighters and much more environmentally friendly, are natural firelighters made from compacted wood shavings dipped in untreated wax. Stage 2 – Twist and tie several separate sheets of newspaper and place these over the lighters. Step 3 – Arrange a layer of small pieces of dry kindling wood over the newspaper. Step 4 – Finish the fire with a layer of coal or several logs on top of the kindling. Step 5 – Light the paper and lighters around the outer edges of the base of the fire.
Depending on how strongly the chimney is drawing, the fire once established will have be stoked with further fuel to maintain a consistent heat.
A coal fire will generally need much less tending than a log fire as the fuel is consumed more slowly.
Christmas at Home begins with the tree and the fireplace… so Chesney’s has decorated this gorgeous fireplace from its brand new collection for this happy season.
A beautiful fireplace really comes into its own as the focal point of a room at Christmas and throughout the year; like a tree, it welcomes decoration and adornment!
The feel-good factor of a real fire can’t be underestimated, particularly during the short days of winter, whether watching a movie or relaxing with friends.
Although a much-abused term, the concept of a ‘classic’ piece of design is entirely valid; true classics can be defined by their ability to sit happily in many different settings – secure in the quality of their own design.
Fireplaces are a great example of the need for classic pieces and After The Antique has an excellent collection of designs, which work just as well in contemporary surroundings as in traditional interiors.
The essence of their success is simplicity of line, correct proportions and the quality of both the stone and the stonemasonry.
The Jane Churchill collection for Chesney’s is the first for several years to incorporate decorative carving as an important and intrinsic part of fireplace design.
Jane Churchill is one of the country’s leading interior designers. Her taste is eclectic, mixing the contemporary and the classical with ease.
The Ebury Fireplace in the finest statuary marble is a refined and understated design, displaying delicately executed acorn and oak leaf carving inspired by the English countryside.
Chesney’s, the well known supplier of classical and period fireplaces have been scouring the world looking for beautiful new types of stone for their range of fireplaces.
In the remote mountainous province of Hebei in China, they have found two unusually coloured and beautiful types of marble: St Augustine Marble which is black, and the yellow Giallo Treviso marble.
