Time for hygge with Caroline...

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we often feel we have all kinds of things we need to get done.

Just planning the holidays and making all the arrangements can take time.

When there are small children in the family, we also want them to notice it is Christmas – and things need to be done in their pace. There's no rushing.

Just twenty years ago or so Halloween began gaining popularity in Europe – a tradition that spread from the US. Actually it was Irish and Scottish immigrants that originally brought the custom with them when they immigrated to America...

Pears are everywhere this time of year. If not in the garden, then in the neighbours garden. And at the roadside stands and the farmer's market. And at the local grocer and the supermarkets.

Gas at the hotel...

A little bird told me that a gas-burning stove from RAIS had moved into the lobby of one of the big, busy hotels nearby, Hotel Jutlandia in Frederikshavn. So I made a little trip.

Our newest stove is called Nexo. I love to talk about each and every new stove. After all, they all have their merits, new designs and perhaps new functions. Otherwise we would not have created a new stove here at RAIS…

When we were out for a day of fun in the woods with Fyrrekrat kindergarten, I saw just how easy it is to relish the little things in life. Like roasting over an open fire. Including a grill.

When you have a busy schedule, making good on all those good ideas and finding time for raw hygge can be hard.

Here in our family we just love our Circle, which we feels reaches a new level when it comes to design and grills…

And we are happy to talk about how good it looks on any patio or in any garden. ☺

Easier to carry firewood in – with Woody ☺

Here is the "firewood basket" I have been looking for myself...
It's compact, it's lightweight – and it feels nice to carry.

A picture on Instagram led me to designer Bruno Jakobsen, who had incorporated a RAIS inset into a wall built specifically for it.

I have been looking forward to presenting the iconic Circle to you. And now, I can show you the first images… ☺ 

Just look at how this newly designed bonfire stove can add an element of chic to your outdoor living space! Garden or patio. Created here, in the land of the Vikings, for use in any season. 

Circle sits almost majestically atop its base in any type of weather.

Last chance to get the firewood ready for next winter...

Last chance to get the firewood ready for next winter...

When I look out the window in the morning at the trees and their bare branches, it reminds me that it is high time to fell the wood we'll need for next winter. Many have likely already been out with their chainsaw and splitting axe... 

Get the most out of your fire! Tip for clean glass!

Get the most out of your fire! Tip for clean glass!

How fun is it really to read or write about cleaning and clean glass on a stove? Not much, is it? 

But how delightful is it to truly be able to see the fire and enjoy the beautiful colours and light effects dancing in the flames?

Winter atmosphere, fireside charm and perhaps a Yuletide treat?

How about a little herring with a beer and snaps by the fire? That is all a part of Christmas here.

In Denmark, where I sit - RAIS's homeland and still its country of production – we have short, dark winters. But at this time of year, we have LOTS of hygge indoors, with a crackling fire and pleasant heat from the stove.J Fur on the sofa and woollen throws.

I have actually been a little excited about the first reactions to our new product from RAIS: Woodframe.

It is in the pipeline, but I can already show you some photos of the first installation for one of our regular customers, Jacob at Skagenfood in Skagen...

With the firing season almost upon us, this is a perfect opportunity for me to strike a blow for our mantra, Art of Fire. It really just means that everything should form a synthesis – stove and fire… J

Luscious leather…

Luscious leather…

Nowadays, we can't get enough of natural materials: concrete, stone, wood, fur, metal and more. And now we have added luscious leather!
Gas, white ceramic and leather look... Check, check.

In springtime, flowers blossom, and in autumn, so do all the new designs! In my world of stoves, we are getting ready for a season of extra heat and cosy hours by the stove...

Fresh off the drawing board!

Recently I was in Skagen, at the northern tip of Denmark – see the – to get some inspiration from the kitchen's wonderful interior – but that's not where it ends.

We just received an international design award… :)

…and you can be co-designer of your own stove!

I will begin by uttering the trending word in design: customization. It covers the more recent phenomenon whereby we manufacturers leave the decisions to you, the customer.

How daring are you?

Design with colour – and stoves.

How does a stove become an integral part of your interior design? How does it work together with the rest of the interior and, not the least, with the colours you want in your home?

Fish and stoves

Touring Skagen

What do fish and stoves have in common? The link between the two may be difficult to spot! And yet...I was recently in Skagen to visit Jacob, a cook at Skagen Food.

Inspiration for your outdoor area

The days have grown lighter. Longer. Energy is coming back. The birds are chirping. Hurray, it is spring! Are you also just coming out of winter hibernation? Are you just like me – anxious to get out into the fresh air, under a blue sky, and start working in the garden or on the patio? Then read on.

It warms the heart – when a designer choses RAIS...

Here in Jutland, people don't brag. But we're going to anyway...

Because when we discover that some of Denmark's best designers – from among the many makes and models available on the market – with great care pick and install a RAIS! It is heart-warming – not just on a Swedish farm or in a black ranch home near Esrum Lake in Northern Zealand – but in Frederikshavn, too.
