The Kensington

As a reaction to the overtly ornate style of the Baroque period, and influenced by Roman architecture seen during their ‘Grand Tour’, aristocratic Georgians developed a taste for what became known as Neo-Classical designs where elegance and symmetry became emblematic.

The Stovax Kensington Insert fireplace characterises this era perfectly. The only difference is that today you can choose to have a gas fire complete with remote control if you do not wish to burn logs or coal.



Cast Iron

When looking for THE most durable material there is for your fireplace look no further. Cast Iron will not only retain its aesthetic details a lot longer than stone but it can also play a practical role. Due to its thermal conductivity if the material is close enough to your heat source and depending on the strength of the heat source, it will absorb and rediate that heat.

Treatment of Cast Iron should be consulted with a member of the ‘Esher Fireplaces’ team as it has its own traits and care requirements.
