Looking for an unusual way to heat your home this winter? Max Blank produces a large range of designer, wood-burning stoves that don’t necessarily need to be installed in a corner or against a wall. The Berlin for example can be installed in the middle of your room, serving as a centerpiece as well as a room divider. The glass base even allows the stove to swivel 360 degrees so you can watch the fire and bask in its heat no matter where you’re sitting.
Now I’m not 100% sure if the rotating stove requires a chimney or not, but if they do you’re probably looking at quite a bit of renovation to retrofit one in your home. It also means apartment dwellers will probably have to do without. (Unless your neighbors upstairs are cool with a hole in their floor billowing smoke.)
