Light your fire with this exceptional hearthside set. Louise Varre’s heritage of growing up surrounded by Nordic design, coupled with her family’s fireplace business situated in Grâces, a township in the Brittany region of France, inspired these luxuriously modern accessories. Louise selected the finest materials for the Emma Series: beech handles from sustainable forests in France, natural horsehair bristles, powder-coated steel with brass details and natural leather from renowned Swedish tannery Tärnsjö. Set includes tongs, brush and shovel to clear away excess ash and the exclusive blow poker. This handy implement can be used both as a blower to more easily give kindling a start and also to prod and arrange logs to keep the fire burning.

Beech wood harvested from sustainable forests in France.
Brush uses 50% horse hair, 50% tamoico, which is made from the roots of the agave cactus. This gives the brush more stiffness and improves heat resistance.
Horse hair and natural, vegetable tanned leather from Swedish tannery Tärnsjö.
Tongs in Naturel I, Naturel II and Havane sets include Tärnsjö leather handles.
Childhood memories of basking in a fire’s glow during long Swedish winters and blissful but brief summers led Louise Varre to found Eldvarm in 2015, with a focus on elevated fireplace accessories made by highly skilled craftsmen and little waste. The collection, designed by fellow Swede Emma Olbers, is made in European countries with long traditions in individual crafts. Leather is vegetable-tanned and certified organic in a century-and-a-half-old Swedish tannery. The 100% natural horsehair brushes are assembled in a third-generation family business in Nantes, France. And so on. All the materials are responsibly sourced, including the wood from sustainably managed forests in France (beech) and the United States (walnut).
For Louise, these timeless pieces are about an investment in the future. Produced, assembled and packaged with the goal of keeping an ecological footprint to the bare minimum, they are also build to last several lifetimes of use and take on the natural sheen and personal imprint and value that comes with age.
