Last weekend, thousands of people descended on the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate for the annual Hearth and Home Exhibition. Now in its 22nd year, the show brings together all sectors of the hearth industry, enabling exhibitors to showcase their new designs for the forthcoming season. Hearth and Home is also an exciting opportunity for trade professionals to network with each other and discuss the diverse range of products, skills and services the sector has to offer.
After a busy few days of stand-building, the Hunter Stoves team were ready and raring to go when the doors to the convention centre opened on Sunday morning. Visitors to our stand would have seen some shiny new additions to the Parkray family on display, including the Aspect 7 with its stunning landscape view, the striking Aspect 80B boiler stove and the new Consort 5 Gas model. Representing the Cleanburn brand and its stylish Scandi influences was the ever-popular Nordstrand 5 Porcelain, and flying the flag for Jetmaster was the 60i inset stove, accompanied by the recently redesigned Jetmaster brochure.

As well as exhibiting some of our new products, we also took the opportunity to showcase a prototype that we are hard at work developing. Taking pride of place on our stand, with its gorgeous panoramic view, was the Di Lusso R9 prototype; a super-sleek, freestanding stove that boasts the forward-thinking technology the Di Lusso range is famous for. The R9 was certainly a big hit, with lots of people eager to find out when it would be available on the market.

It was great to see so many enthusiastic tradespeople at the show, with friends old and new visiting our stand to find out more about our exciting new products. The Hearth and Home Show is always a hive of activity with a wonderfully warm (excuse the pun) and friendly atmosphere – a real pleasure to exhibit at. A massive thank you to all the staff and organisers at Hearth and Home 2018 for putting on a great show – we are looking forward to next year already!
