The Beginning

I have been in the fireplace business since 1980, I love seeing a fireplace the right style, correctly proportioned in the right room, I got a buzz back then and its still as strong as ever.

The Showroom

Showroom Upgrade

I had a small showroom with seven fireplaces then we moved up to our present showroom with about 50 displays in 1988.


Quarry Trip

In the 90’s fashion changed to wood and marble fireplaces. Although our sales were good it bothered me as I felt I was selling the wrong product to the wrong room, customers were happy enough but I wasn’t; marble is cold and sophisticated, it looks great in Italy or Spain but does not suit the majority of our warmer rooms in the UK. So I went to the quarry and started buying sheets of smooth stone, and producing fireplaces from a small workshop at the back of the showroom, they were an instant success with customers.

Fireplace Delivery


A few months later we were joined by an experienced stone mason which meant he could make whatever I designed which even included a Hanuman monkey god! Within a year we started Firecraft and over the years have built many different styles for a variety of interiors, in fact all my range has been built up from clients with particular room setting.

Our Story Continues

In 2016 we released The FC50, the first stove to be made by Firecraft which has a 5kW power output, and although Firecraft may have began many years ago, I am still truly honest with my customers, which I think might be why Firecraft has been so successful, I would never sell or make you anything I’m not 100% happy with. At Firecraft we will work alongside you to come up with a fireplace that we can all be proud of.
