We are an entrepreneurial British family business, built on 35 years of anticipating the needs of our discerning customers and adhering to the highest standards of design, functionality, workmanship and service.
We believe in the fusion of traditional and modern design and manufacturing techniques. Everything we make; be it our period and contemporary fireplaces, our climate-friendly stoves and outdoor heaters or our post-tensioned staircases, is driven by this principle.
Whether it is our skilled artisans carving marble for a chimneypiece or our in-house Research & Development team testing our latest stoves for eco-design 2022 approval, they are all focussed on the right way to deliver timeless quality, combined with cutting-edge innovation.
We express this commitment to excellence with this simple set of day-to-day principles:
Quality: ‘Good enough’ isn’t good enough, we must aim for perfection.
Beauty: We focus on design, materials, detail and a finish to make the heart sing.
Engineering: We manufacture cutting-edge, durable products, that work brilliantly.
Inventive: We are always seeking new ways to do things better.
Service: We know our customers have a choice, so we deliver a service, second to none.
Responsible: We know there is only one planet and we aim to look after it.
A fireplace should be the primary focus of any room, and therefore we ensure that every one of our fireplaces embodies the finest craftsmanship and integrity of design.
Chesneys is internationally recognised as the leading luxury brand in its field and is the first port of call for architects, interior designers and private clients all over the world who are seeking the very best fireplaces, wood burning stoves and gas fire appliances.
A Chesneys fireplace should be the best there is. That was our philosophy when we founded the company over 30 years ago and it remains the same today.
The scope of the company’s business has expanded exponentially since it was founded.
Chesneys was initially concerned with the restoration of antique fireplaces but a quantum leap was made in the early 90s with the move into the reproductions of period fireplace designs in stone, marble and iron.
Chesneys was the first company to make authentic reproductions of fireplaces available at an affordable price and to develop a sophisticated bespoke service for both classical and contemporary fireplace designs.
The company is unique in the collaborations it has forged with historical bodies such as The Soane Museum and The Lutyens Foundation, and the collections it has produced with leading designers such as Jasper Conran, Jane Churchill and Barbara Hulanicki.
Chesneys has also developed an award winning range of wood burning stoves and energy efficient gas fires, and is recognised as offering the widest product range within its industry. The company has diversified into architectural stonework and projects have been secured worldwide for specialist items, such as cantilevered staircases and classical stone facades.
In addition to its own showrooms in London and New York, Chesneys has a rapidly expanding trade sales arm and its products are now sold through over 200 authorised dealerships in the UK, Europe, Middle and Far East and North and South America. The company’s products are to be found in the most prestigious residential and hospitality projects.
