I really love the smell of burned wood and love a good fire place. Last winter I bought a fire pit for my patio, but it wasn’t a real succes as it was way to big for the space. Still I keep searching and for the upcoming season I am looking into other options to bring the feeling of a cozy fire into my home.
Spending time outdoors and still cook your favourite dinner
If you love a fireplace as much as I do, love to be outside and maybe have a little more space or real garden. Dutch brand Weltevree has lots of amazing products to get most out of the seasons! When I hear their name mentioned, I immediately think of a crackling fire, thick warm sweaters, being outside and eating in good company. I have been following the brand for years as they used to have a beautiful store in Amsterdam where you really could feel the essence of the brand.
My favourite product must be the Weltevree Outdooroven designed by Dick van Hoff who designed this oven to not only light a good fire but also for grilling or bake a pizza on the cooking stone. Made of Corten steel the oven can be left outside all year round. Over time it will develop a rusty layer that gives it its final colour and protects the steel from rusting through.
XL Oven and accessories
If you want to expand your outdoor kitchen with a Design barbecue, the XL version of the Weltevree outdoor oven offers a grill next to the pizza oven. A lacquered base made of Iroko wood offers space for logs and other cooking utensils if desired.
The Weltevree Oven Dish and Pizza shovel
The Weltevree Oven Dish with enamelled cast iron matt finish is not just any oven dish, this design is three dishes in one! A deep dish and a deeper dish can be used separately as an oven dish, combined they form one dish with a lid which is ideal for roasting and stews, the oven can be used for different meal preparations and even popcorn or soup can be made.
“Weltevree means you feel pleasant, contented with your surroundings. In the Netherlands old farmhouses are often named after this. It is a homely feeling: this is where I feel good.” Weltevree is also the name of the Dutch design brand who manufactures contemporary durable goods in collaboration with the best designers and inventors, which aim to activate you and your surroundings.
Next to their outdoor ovens the brand is known for their durable outdoor furniture of which especially the bathtub is high on my wish list…. that if I would have a hidden garden or rooftop terrace! The tub is light weighted and completely heated through natural circulation: light a fire and wait for the water to heat up.
Originally designed in 2020 as a graduation project by Floris Schoonderbeek, the tub and immediately became his big break. Dutch tub Wood is a variation on the original tub and offers the classic look of a hot tub with the same comfort of the original tub which comes in different colours, find them here: Dutchtub by Floris Schoonhoven
