Contemporary living at its Scandi best

As the North West’s leading fireplace showroom and retailer, we often talk about contemporary design – but our new range of wood burners really does make a statement and then some!

Odin is a renowned God in Norse mythology, mostly recognized as a God of war. However, he was also associated with wisdom and magic and perhaps that’s why the design team at Dik Geurts have named their circular wood stove after him.  Certainly, it takes a lot of wisdom to incorporate so many incredible features into the stove – as well as ensure the models are so cleverly presented – it must be magic!

The Dik Geurts Odin is a unique circular wood stove that is available in five options – each one of which is guaranteed to take centre stage in your home.

Odin Wall – allows the stove to be hung onto a flat wall suggesting the illusion that the flames themselves are dancing inside the wall and for those who love clean lines, it’s the perfect fire.

Oden Fixed – this model can be suspended from the ceiling making it the perfect choice for a bold, open plan living space when you want to make statement.  The Oden Fixed Tunnel is the double-sided version which offers a 360º view of the flames from either side of the fire. Naturally both models need to be mounted on a horizontal, non-combustible and strong ceiling.

The Odin Plateau comes with a plateau, a surround that allows the stove to sit on either its left or right side.  Underneath, is the perfect place for storing logs and this version looks stunning fitted to a wall.  The Odin Plateau Tunnel is ideal for larger spaces and can sit centrally so that the flames can be enjoyed from either side.

The Odin is really easy to use thanks to a single air slider that has three functions, one for ventilation and lighting the fire, one ventilator for burning waste gases and the third to ensure the glass remains clean.  The internal lining of cast vermiculite reflects heat to ensure a quicker heating of the fume channel.

The fire is from the Netherlands where protecting the environment and sustainability is a priority.  That’s why every fire in the Odin collection offers clean combustion, higher efficiency and meets Europe’s strictest emission requirements – so much so that the Odin is smoke control exempt.

Whichever option you decide to use there is no doubt that the Odin will give your home the wow factor.  If you want to give your entire room over to Scandi design, the key rules are functional items with simple lines that’s don’t sacrifice the beauty of the piece.  Pale wooden floors and furniture, sheepskin rugs and absolutely no clutter is key to the getting the look right.
