The Princes House at the Ideal Home Show 2013


So here it is. Our C-Eight wood burning stove taking centre stage in the open-plan living area in the Princes House at the Ideal home Show 2013. Styled by House Beautiful magazine the stunning house has received thousands of visitors over the course of the show. The house was designed as an eco-home that is 70% more energy efficient than current building regulations require. It was made from materials including clay, wood, lime and recycled newspaper which create an efficient shell requiring just the wood burner to provide heat during the winter months. Also included in the house were a number of fireside accessories from our fair trade ‘Bodj’ range. They included the steel and rattan ‘G’ log holder (pictured next to the stove), a set of forged tongs and a bamboo bulb basket. The show runs until April 1st after which the Prince’s Foundation plan to dismantle the house and re-site it.
