We live in a rural village in the Westhoek (BE), on the border with France
and near the sea and Heuvelland. We enjoy it every day the beautiful
landscape, the singing birds, hares, pheasants... As a manufacturer of
fireplaces, we thought about how to shape the traditional fireplace
into an environmentally friendly product for the future.
 
And we are always looking for better. Not just for a better fireplace. We
want people to feel good. With respect for nature. We hold of authenticity,
beauty and quality and want to be a source of inspiration for a 
sustainable 'fire' experience.

Combining Belgian craftsmanship and a Danish ethos, effortless cosiness
and sustainability find expression in Hygge Flames

 Why the name Hygge Flames?

 

A boring name for a Belgian innovative product? Rather not. We opted for storytelling. We  got the inspiration from the Scandinavian lifestyle 'hygge', a stylish and sustainable way of life. In essence, 'hygge' is about creating homeliness, enjoying simple things in life with fine people around you. And this is universal. We believe that the idea of ​​'hygge' de reason is why the danes are often proclaimed as the happiest people in the world!

 
"Hygge is stepping back from the rush of daily lift to make time for
those moments of wellbeing"
