DeFehr Fireplaces: The Perfect Fit for Fall

Fall is fast approaching, bringing crisp air, shorter days and the desire to prepare for colder temperatures. Like most Canadians, we at DeFehr eagerly anticipate the change in season, embracing any excuse to pull out our favourite fall clothes and to shift into “cozy mode”.

Being warm and relaxed can set anyone’s mind at ease but the experience becomes more challenging with the addition of homework, kids’ activities, fall chores and family dinners.  Why not minimize the stress of these activities by turning your home into an autumn oasis? DeFehr Furniture offers a wide range of beautiful entertainment units with built-in fireplaces to help you do just that.

Let us introduce you to some of our entertainment collections.

DeFehr works hard to create entertainment units that combine style, function, and flame. We employ a variety of materials and shapes to suit your tastes, interesting technologies to satisfy your needs, and electric fireplaces from well-known brands like Dimplex and Greenway Home Products to keep you warm.

Many of our entertainment units — like the Camden, the Kona, and the Stockton — offer the option to select a fireplace insert according to your specific tastes. For example, the traditional log fireplace provides a rustic look while the crushed acrylic ember look allows you to achieve a contemporary feel.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll be satisfied by easy installation, the ability to run the flame with or without heat, and the low energy costs.  Some units are capable of heating up to 400 square feet while others can heat up to 1000 square feet but will only add pennies per hour to your next energy bill.  Each fireplace is manufactured using tempered glass, meaning it can fit safely be used without fear of shattering. (So yes, when the weather is too cold, your kids can happily play safely.)

Another way that DeFehr’s entertainment units add warmth to your home is through their unique lighting features. As the sun sets earlier and earlier, these accent lights help to achieve a bright but calming mood in your family’s home.  For example, the integrated lighting in the display towers of our Vienna Collection help to induce a cozy feeling during those dark, cold months.

To make the most of your space, consider pairing your fireplace console with matching display towers to create the ultimate pier wall – perfect for those much-anticipated family movie nights.

Oh yes – don’t forget to pull some blankets out of one of the many available drawers in your entertainment unit. Then gather ‘round and start the show!

This fall season, make sure you enjoy the beautiful colors of the outdoors, but let DeFehr Furniture warm you up at the end of your day. Instead of planning your annual winter vacation, let the Richview Collection inspire a stay-cation in your own home.
