The Firenzo Difference


Firenzo is a family owned business committed to building woodfires of the highest quality. Since 1974, we’ve been designing and building woodfires to warm the homes of our local, national and international customers.

Our freestanding and insert woodfires are engineered to the highest standard by our own dedicated team, resulting in a range which we’re incredibly proud of.

A Reputation for Quality

Firenzo is proudly family owned and has been run by founder Peter Hewitson since 1974.

Firenzo hand-assembled woodfires are renowned for their excellent design and lasting quality.

Since our fires have always been clean burning and efficient, they required no significant changes to meet the stringent new NES regulations.
