ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Decorating -

Best for stream­lined style Con­tura

This Swedish brand spe­cialises in wood­burn­ing stoves in mod­ern shapes. Its new ‘320A’ model is a sleek cube, which looks great ei­ther free­stand­ing or set into a fire­place. From £1,795 (con­tura.eu).

Best for sus­pended stoves Fo­cus

Founded in 1967 by French sculp­tor Do­minique Im­bert, Fo­cus makes stoves that re­sem­ble works of art, such as the ‘Er­go­fo­cus’ wood-burner, which ro­tates 360 de­grees to di­rect heat wher­ever you want it. It comes in a range of colours and metal­lic fin­ishes. From £6,500 (fo­cus-fire­places.com).

Best for boiler stoves Charn­wood

This Isle of Wight brand has a range of boiler stoves, which not only burn logs but also heat ra­di­a­tors and wa­ter. The ‘Is­land IIIB’ is a case in point – there’s also a ver­sion with a hot­plate for cook­ing. From £2,694 (charn­wood.com).

Best for clas­sic style Ch­es­ney’s

This Bri­tish brand started out restor­ing an­tique fire­places – ori­gins that are re­flected in its time­less stove col­lec­tion. We like the ‘Beau­mont 6’ de­sign, avail­able in wood or multi-fuel ver­sions. From £1,980 (ches­neys.co.uk).

Best for awk­ward spa­ces Morsø

Morsø has been keep­ing Danes warm since 1853, and to­day it has some great mod­els for small spa­ces, in­clud­ing the ‘6643’ wood­burner, which slots neatly into tight cor­ners. The wide win­dow gives a good view of the flames from all an­gles. From £1,990 (mor­soe.com).
