Scandinavian

Known for its simplicity and beauty, the fast growing Scandinavian exterior style centered around functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. The Mini-Burton or Burton Fireplace is the perfect accessory to your Scandinavian outdoor area. We have seen a range of finishing touches utilising wood, concrete and brick to help create this stunning modern and minimal landscape design

Urban Sanctuary
This contemporary design showcases the beauty  and sanctuary inside the urban lifestyle.  With stunning landscape views that we are luckily not  shy of here in New Zealand. This stunning and versatile outdoor Fireplace (Burton) can be custom finished to fit in with all landscape settings. Woven chairs pair well with schist tiles. One of the most popular furniture styles are picnic benches which also help create a cozy and casual atmosphere.

Traditional
A dreamy blend of traditional style meets contemporary featuring the Douglass Fireplace. This picturesque setting was designed by landscape architect Paul Gallagher from Mace Landscapes (view the garden here). With a light-dappled colonnade, a welcoming outdoor fire, stucco walls and verdant planting, the traditional Douglas fits the setting perfectly. You can enhance this setting by adding mosaic tables with natural material furniture such as wood, stones, ceramic or even glass.

A Little Bit Country

With farmhouse style outdoor furniture rising in popularity over the past few years, this cozy and inclusive style oozes care-free relaxation. The classic Hudson fireplace is sharp, tidy and minimalistic and can handle any style of finishing touches so fits the bill perfectly if you are trying to create this look. Incorporating wrought iron, brick or stone  fittings married with contrasting tables such as a trestle table with woven or beaded chairs. 2018 will see a lot more white or golden furnishings which will enhance this classic country style perfectly.
