Europe’s leading wood-burning stove manufacturer, Contura, is offering Period Living readers the chance to win a stove worth up to £1,995.

Designed and assembled in Markaryd, Sweden, Contura stoves are known for their timeless design, efficiency and high quality. One lucky winner will be able to choose a stove that adds rustic style and cosiness to their home. 

For those with an existing fireplace, the Contura i7 cassette stove can be inserted for a classic look to brighten up any home. Those wanting to add a touch of warmth with a more traditional design can opt for the freestanding Contura i5L – with shorter legs and the largest possible glass surface, offering an optimum view of the flames; perfect for meditative evenings spent curled up in front of the fire. 

Contura stoves are DEFRA Clean Air Act Exempt, meaning they are approved for installation in Smoke Controlled Areas. They are also certified Ecodesign-Ready to meet all future stove requirements.  

A wood-burner reduces particulate emissions by up to 90 per cent compared to a traditional open fireplace. Not only that, but the superior design of the Contura heat chamber means greater efficiency; two logs will burn for up to an hour in the stove, compared to only 15 minutes on an open fire; and while 80 per cent of the heat generated by an open fire escapes up the chimney, 80 per cent of the heat generated by a wood-burning stove is radiated into the room.
