Over the last few years, outdoor wood burning appliances have become much more popular across the UK. With longer daylight hours Scotland has always enjoyed outside entertaining, however, the cooler climate has always limited the opportunity to enjoy this but now, with a wide range of outside heating appliances on offer at Bonk & Co, the evening light can be enjoyed all year round.
Italian designer AK47 have produced a stunnng range of outside firepits that offer an alternative way of heating outside, these range from a small opening in the ground that is perfect for a smaller entertaining area, to their biggest firepits that give you space to store and dry your logs, and have all your family and friends seated around the firepit using its built in bench.
European stove manufacturers Rias and Harrie Leenders have also produced a range of outside stoves and barbecues that not only function as an outside heating or cooking appliance but also act as a stylish focal point in any garden. Our favorite example of this would be the Rais Gizeh, which combines simple straight line looks with an edgy rustic finish, and gives you the freedom to enjoy it as an outside fire or barbecue.
Even log stores have been given a make over, with the Harrie Leenders WoodStocker which takes inspiration from cosmopolitan Europe, and perfectly unites functionality with style. They are made from corten and galvanised steel to make them beautiful and strong, and whether they are being used as focal feature or partition wall, they make a great showpiece in any garden.
The outside space of any home is now regarded as a fifth room, and it to now can have a wood burning stove.
