Diligence Bathyscafocus space age wood burner

Diligence If you look at some vintage design books from the 60s and 70s (including early versions of Conran's House Book), you'll see not see the gas and electric fires that were probably in your parents' homes, you'll see some weird and wonderful real fireplaces as a focal point of a room. And you can still buy similar designs.

Diligence in Devon do some fantastic wood burners, including the Bathyscafocus space age wood burner. Suspended from the ceiling, it's designed for the centre of a room rather than on a wall. That's because it spins round, allowing you to enjoy the heat wherever you are.

A stunning piece of retro design, you can pick one up for your space age pad for £4,215. And check out the website for more design, images and clips of the fireplaces in action.

I love rugs

I like the way the colours are matched. Very light room was complete with dark chair and dark wood burner. Very nice.
