CHICAGO— Twin-Star International approached the recent International Home + Housewares Show with new heaters, but also introduced a range of its electric fireplace furniture.
In addition to items such as electric fireplace stove heaters, decorative in their own right, the company slated to debut electric fireplace mantels and hanging wall mounted electric fireplaces at the show. The furniture items Twin-Star introduced are designed with some unique features.
For example, the relatively high and narrow configuration of the Windsor TV stand allows it to work as a wall or corner unit. The high design creates an open storage space above the fireplace insert, while doors on either side of the insert offer closed storage. All in all, the Windsor fireplace provides a fair amount of storage space for media components and accessories, Twin-Star noted.
The electric fireplace provides supplemental zone heating for up 400 square feet, according to the company. It offers the company’s Spectrafire flame effect technology and includes three blue and three amber flame effect brightness settings that users can adjust to recall modern gas fire or a traditional wood burning fire. The flame effects work with or without heat and a remote control allows consumers to update settings from anywhere in the room.
The glass front on the fireplace stays cool to the touch for worry-free use around kids and pets, and the Windsor TV stand comes equipped with Safer Plug fire prevention technology that will turn off the fireplace if unsafe conditions arise, according to the company.
The new Rolling Mantel design offers placement flexibility. The compact fireplace moves on concealed furniture-quality casters, Twin-Star noted which can be particularly useful for those consumers who might want to position the infrared quartz electric fireplace to take advantage of the supplemental zone heating it provides for spaces as large as 1,000 square feet. The fireplace also offers remote control flame effect brightness settings, adjustable thermostat and a programmable timer.
As for the hanging and wall mounted designs, the Euphoria electric fireplace offers a modern look paired with practicality, Twin-Star asserted. It provides Spectrafire flame effects and supplemental zone heating for up to 1,000 square feet. The flame effect dances over a decorative stone ember bed display and can be used with or without heat for year-round enjoyment, Twin-Star suggested.
The Euphoria fireplace incorporates programmable automatic timed shut off, an adjustable thermostat, remote control and a stay-cool glass front.
Twin-Star stated that it designed the curved wall hanging electric fireplace to create an immersive experience. The design features an updated metallic base giving it a clean and contemporary feel. It offers Spectrafire flame effect technology across a curved plane that creates the sense of a surrounding 3-D color embrace, the company indicated, and warmth from the heat function that can provide supplemental warming for up to 1,000 square feet. A remote control is included.
