I do like a contemporary cylindrical stove in the right setting. This is a Morso 6140 Multi-fuel Stove that I recently Swept at an address in Farnham. As I say, I think a contemporary cylindrical stove is great particularly if it is in the right setting, which is usually in a large room in my view. This particular example is located in a large sitting room in a barn conversion, so it is ideally located. There is also that nice juxtaposition of a contemporary cylindrical stove in an old building, that works very well, the contrast of old and new, fabulous. Aesthetics aside, I thought I would focus this week’s blog on this Morso stove as it is unusual, in that I do many, many Morso stoves across the local area, however I can’t think of any other examples on a Morso cylindrical stove that I do. In fact, I do a huge number of morso stoves, usuuall the Morso Squirrel in its many incarnations, or the Morso 03 or 04, but not many cylindrical stoves. I think you will agree that this stove has very sleek lines and does look particularly good in its setting. From my point of view, unlike the Jotul cylindrical stoves, it was quite straight forward to dismantle and put back together. Making my day sweeping a lot happier and straightforward!
Morso are a Danish stove company who have been making metal consumer goods since 1953. It was Neils Christensen who founded the Morson Foundry making all sorts of products including metal stable windows, tools, pots and pans and even grave crosses. Around the turn of the century Morso began to start making tiled stoves and room heaters for schools, churches, railsways, government ministries and even to the Danish Royal Family. Indeed, so successful where they, that in 1915 they became the official purveyor of stoves to the Danish Royal Family. It was in the 1950 when tiled stoves became obsolete that Morso began producing Wood-burning Stoves.
