Rumford 1000

The Rumford 1000 is the ideal wood burning fireplace. It provides the crackle of wood, heat of the flame and is the perfect focal point for any room. When the integrated glass door is closed, unlike a conventional masonry fireplace, there is no heat lost up the chimney. 

What makes Renaissance the ultimate wood burning fireplace?

The Fire.  Rumford fireplaces light faster, produce larger flames, generate fewer emissions and heat more than any other existing open wood fireplace. The fire is so big and bright that it puts all other wood burning appliances to shame. If you have not experienced the fire in a  Rumford, now is the time.

The Nostalgia.

A luxury wood burning fireplace should create a feeling of nostalgia. Most Renaissance customers grew up with a conventional wood burning fireplace. Our goal is to recreate those positive feelings, without any of the drawbacks like inefficiency and smoke in the home.

Sealed Door

Once closed, the Renaissance door keeps warm room air inside the home where it belongs.

Less expensive than masonry

No footing required to support the fireplace, pre-assembled units cost less and install easily.

Clean Burning

Winner of a U.S. EPA Clean Air Excellence Award for outstanding, innovative efforts in improving air quality


Although light enough to require no footing, the Renaissance is over 800 lbs of solid steel.

Insulated Chimney

Insulated chimney prevents cold air entering the home and improves performance of the appliance.

Massive Fire

No other existing fireplace burns as big, bright and beautiful as a Renaissance Fireplace®.

Creates Distinctive Ambiance

Listen to the crackle and pop of the fire when the built in screen is closed.

Freedom of Design

Our fireplaces are a blank canvas which you can adapt to your personal style.
