Cuddly evenings on the sofa. The play of flames in the fireplace, the dog snoozing comfortably and a good book make time stand still and forget the hectic and pressure of everyday life. Cocooning is the new trend. Those who prefer to stay at home, to retreat within their own four walls, are following the trend. This is not about withdrawing from social life. Rather, the social get-together is shifting to the home - to game evenings or cooking together. A fireplace is then the icing on the cake of enormous well-being.
Humans have always lived and worked with fire. Even prehistoric people used fire for their own purposes. When the wind drove the snow mass through the landscape outside, our ancestors huddled around a fire, cooked or roasted the hunted/gathered prey and listened to the howling of the wind. This desire for cosiness, protection and security has remained in us to this day.
A wood fire brings this cosiness and security into the four walls at home. At the same time, the gentle play of the fire relaxes us and makes us forget the worries of everyday life. In those days, fire was a means of survival, but today it is more a way of life that springs from the desire to slow down from these hectic times.
Tiled stoves are a cultural asset that lives on in the soul of stove and fireplace builders and is passed on to the people. Today, tiled stoves not only give warmth, but are also a beautiful decoration that underlines the homeliness of the fire.
The choice is huge. Whether individual tiled stove construction in modern design, kit system tiled stoves, kit system fireplaces or simply fireplaces: There is something for every taste. The open fire for cosy evenings is just as natural as is the closed fireplace with window glass.
Something has also changed in terms of environmental friendliness. Modern fireplaces and stoves can now be combined with a heat pump for the protection of the environment. For example, a heat pump stove heating prevents the heat supply in the house from failing on frosty days.
Although the efficiency of the heat pump is declining, the wood fire stove can still produce water heat thanks to the integrated boiler. This water is fed into the house's heating system to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Cosy warmth, hot water and a comforting crackling fire within your own four walls. Cocooning in a modern way.
