Here is something unusual for this week’s blog, a freestanding Stovax Riva, you don’t often see one of these! Although I do see lots and lots of the cassette version of the Stovax Riva I don’t think that I have ever seen a freestanding version, anywhere I sweep or in a showroom. This example is the Stovax Riva 66, which I recently swept at an address in Birchanger. It is a rather attractive contemporary stove, with very clean, straight lines and does not look out of place with the very contemporary home within which it is situated. So, I do like this stove and imagine that it is rather attractive when alight, however I can’t help thinking that when it is not working, it looks rather like a big fish tank? The customer reports that it is a very efficient stove and they do obtain very good fuel economy from it. Additionally, they told me that it does keep the room nice and toasty warm even on the coldest of winter days!
