Selected by the programme’s award winning interior designer Tara Bernerd, the Faber Ease fire was part of a step-by-step designer transformation that created high-end urban style in a country cottage in nearby Tring.
The Hertfordshire Fireplace Gallery was chosen to do the installation. The programme’s tight filming schedule meant that the whole transformation had to be completed within four days and engineers, Jason and Steve, had to work not only to short deadlines but around other trades.
Neil Stean, proprietor of The Hertfordshire Fireplace Gallery, explains, “It was a great experience being approached to be part of a national TV programme and there was no margin for any sort of delay on this installation as time was at a premium. Not only that, the actual room was very small and our engineers Jason and Steve had to also work around the film crew!” he says.
London-based Tara’s design for the room put the Ease with stainless steel frame and white pebble fuel bed as the focal point, offset by a bright orange wall. Deep colours, mirrors, leather shelves and textured wall and floor coverings completed the look.
The Hertfordshire Fireplace Gallery was recently featured on the popular Channel 4 television programme Property Ladder. The property, a tiny Victorian cottage in Hertford underwent an extensive renovation, which included relocating the kitchen to the front of the house, moving the lounge to the back and building a glass walled extension, as well as updating the rest of the rooms in the cottage.
When it came to choosing a gas fire for the lounge, Karen turned to the experience of Neil Stean owner of the Hertfordshire Fireplace Gallery. The new Allusion fire from Magiglo fitted the brief and Neil’s team set about installing it in the living room. The metallic gunmetal/silver complemented the subtle tones and decor perfectly, resulting in an immediate and dramatic transformation of the living room area.
The Allusion gas fire, is available in two sizes 16” and 22”, it offers a heat output of up to 4kW (22” model), has the option of hand-held remote control and features a choice of three Dimension fascias. The one chosen by Karen was the metallic gunmetal/silver but metallic bronze/champagne and metallic black/white options are also available
