Who are Fireplace Products? Based in rural Essex, Fireplace Products began in 2007 as an offshoot of EVA UK Ltd who had showrooms at Lower Barn Farm in Rayleigh, Essex. Originally created to gauge the public’s interest for the products EVA UK where importing to the UK themselves, and over time grew to become one of the leading and most comprehensive online retailers for domestic home heating, fireplaces and wood burning stoves. The man responsible for achieving this was Reece Toscani, who had an in-depth knowledge of the products EVA sold, and an interest in the online world. He took on the Fireplace Products website in 2007, and set the values to which the business is still built upon:
- Expert product knowledge and advice,
- Best customer service in our industry,
- More choice than our competitors,
- Competitive prices and price matching,
- High quality products and services,
- Simple and easy buying process,
These six principals still stand true today some 10+ years and seven versions of the website later. Reece is still very much involved in Fireplace Products, working behind the scenes and in the wider heating industry in more of an ambassadorial role, raising the Fireplace Products name and profile within the UK, while still guest posting on the blog and doing shameless PR stunts for our social and YouTube channels.
The Team Today
We have a dedicated team looking after all Fireplace Products sales and orders. Be it website orders, or telephone sales our team of people band together to deliver the best service we can, while trying to help customers find the 'Fireplace Products' right for their home. One of the biggest challenges our team face is the wide range of products that we offer, having enough product knowledge to assist our customers as much as they need is no easy feat, but they embrace the challenge and love to learn.
Fireplace Products are still based on the original Lower Barn Farm site, this gives us the advantage of being able to utilise the high-end showrooms that exist here for our customers. The showroom is split into two main rooms, Fires and Fireplaces and Wood Burning Stoves. The fires and fireplaces showroom are in a historic barn that has been converted into a modern showroom, complete with over 50 fireplaces and live fires on show at any one time. Choose from traditional cast iron fireplaces, or modern sleek built-in fires, "the barn" showroom has the all. Our separate wood burning stove showroom, is one of the largest stove shops in the county, with over 100 models on display. This building used to be individual horse stables, then were knocked through and opened to create a spacious showroom full of exciting models. From 5kW traditional stoves you might put into a fireplace, to larger freestanding modern stoves that take pride of place in your room, "the stable" showroom has just what you’re looking for. Outside of these two showrooms are all our outdoor fires, from firepits, chimineas, patio heaters and barbecues, we have a unique range of outdoor fire products on show to for all your summer fire needs. Lower Barn Farm also has a kitchen showroom, large trade counter including a host of natural stone products unique to them, a garden centre for all your plant needs and a country cafe for you to take a load off and relax with a coffee while you consider one of our products.
