Stoking the Fires

Stoke Queenstown’s spacious showroom provides a gallery style experience where customers can get up close and personal with the wide range of indoor and outdoor working fires on display.

“We have curated the very best in fireplace design from around the world whether you’re looking for wood, gas or electric and something classic or contemporary,” says Stoke Queenstown showroom manager Henry Jenkins.

As the Southern Lakes region expands the company has developed to cater for all types of projects from fully managed home renovations to new build apartments and family homes, large commercial projects and hotels and expansive multimillion dollar luxury homes.

“We are lucky enough to be involved in some remarkable local projects in Queenstown and Wanaka where design-led heating solutions are essential,” says Henry. “All our projects receive specialist attention because choosing a fireplace can be confusing.”

“Customers can make an appointment to come and see our extensive range. Stoke can provide anything and everything from interior design services and fully project managed client absent renovations to basic installations or supply of our exclusive fires for others to install. For architects, designers looking for help with their next project our team an assist with plans, and work cohesively alongside contractors and tradespeople to ensure the fireplace installation runs as smoothly as possible.”

Based at 131 Gorge Rd the Queenstown Stoke showroom is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am until 5.00pm or by appointment. 

Henry says the showroom selection highlights  fireplace brands that specifically suit the local Queenstown environment.

“Queenstown locals have specific needs from a fireplace. Although the region is one of the most beautiful our climate is also one of the harshest so home heating requirements are top of the list. Our range of gas, wood and electric fireplaces are from world-class brands including Escea gas fires, Spartherm wood fires, luxury MODE gas fires and Ambe electric fires.”

He says this winter the spotlight falls on the latest range from MODE which is exclusive to Stoke. 

“The luxury MODE gas fireplace range offers unconventional shapes and larger-than-life designs for the style conscious. These fires become a real talking point in a design led home.”

“For their latest design – the KS1460 – the design team applied world-class innovation to create a fire with a minimalist, refined aesthetic and fascinating flame experience. This designer gas fire is wider, taller and deeper than average and offers more flame and more authenticity to the overall experience. It is a very stylish heating option ideal for the discerning homeowner who wants the very best.”
