Woodburning is often closely associated with a traditional setting; it’s easy to picture the scene – a period property, a rural idyll and a cosy sitting-room, however if contemporary is more your thing and you live within a town or city, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are plenty of options available to you should you wish to introduce woodburning to your existing heating arrangements.

Stovax has a comprehensive list of appliances approved by Defra for use in smoke control areas. The Riva Studio for example has outstanding efficiency levels and comes in a range of sizes and with a variety of frames to choose from.

A cassette woodburning fire sits in the wall, making it a perfect space saver, and allows for an elevated arrangement: create drama with an eye-level view of the flames.

The Riva Studio can also be brought out into the room to create a stove look, complete with contemporary styling and clean lines for the modern home. And it still pumps out the heat, meaning you can banish any winter chills!

If space is an issue and a less horizontal alignment would benefit your property, the Riva Vision woodburning stove is a pleasing option. The feel of this appliance sits just in the middle of traditional and 21st century, enabling you to gain the perfect compromise.
