I’m determined to hold on tight to those final moments of summer, but the undeniable chill in the air means the wooden logs and metal fireplace tools are out and we lit our first fire of the season last night!
While I’m not quite ready to leave summer behind and give in to the gradual shift to winter mode, I definitely don’t mind the arrival of relaxing evenings by the fire. To get you prepared too, I’ve restocked some of our fireside essentials and added a few new products so you can keep your fire burning bright and fireplace tidy for the seasons ahead.
The perfect partners - Ash Brush & Hearth Brush
Two new items to our collection for AW22!
Our larger Ash Shovel will clear away ash from yesterday’s fire in no time. Simply scoop up the ash once cool and dispose of them safely. Crafted in powder coated steel, it’s easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and complements the look and feel of any hearth.
The Hearth Brush is great for sweeping away ashes from any hard to reach areas, or for keeping the area around your fireplace, where wooden bark or cinders might fall, clear. Crafted with strong synthetic bristles, it will last for several sweeps and seasons to come.
Metal and wood dustpan and brush sets are firm favourites here and this beautiful all-in-one solution is great for keeping on top of sweeping away cold ashes, the narrower width pan makes it easier to use in smaller fireplaces.
The steel pan and beech handle combination look great, last well and do the job well!
Our fireside sets are perfect to help keep your fire burning and then tidy the cool ashes that settle. Starting off with the small but mighty Log Burner set, ideal for those with log burners or open fires. The poker will help bring some life back into fading flames, while the brush and shovel will sweep away cold ashes.
A clear winner with our customers too, one review reads: “Gorgeous quality, dinky and looks great next to the log burner. No more risking burning myself trying to rearrange wood in the fire and clearing up the hearth in the morning is no longer a chore!”
We love curating practical products which you love to use and look great when displayed so we’re delighted to know this log burner set ticks all those boxes! This leads us into our ultimate kit to keep the fire ablaze... the fireside set of four tools are crafted from wrought iron and have a beautiful antiqued brown finish so they’re in keeping with the look and feel of any home fireside.
On top of the useful fire poker, ash shovel and brush, this set has a log grabber which is great for stacking your logs perfectly in the fire without worrying about getting burnt.
The final piece that you need to complement any cosy fireside set up is a warm blanket. We are in love with our throws from the Tartan Blanket Co. Woven with 70% recycled wool and 30% mixed recycled fibres, the sustainable blankets are perfectly soft and come in three neutral tones to work with any colour palette in the home.
