Review of Dru 44 stove

Gorgeous

We have just had this installed in the Ivory colour - and it is gorgeous! I love the simple, classic design and even when it is unlit it is a real feature of the room. I would say in the flesh it is a creamier shade than we were anticipating and so we have had to rethink our colour scheme for the room as we were opting for bluey greys to bring out the colour in the slate hearth. We have opened our fireplace right up to an old high arch. Our installer didn't have a problem finding us a matching flue in the exact same Ivory shade. We have only used it a few times so far, but are really impressed with the heat - as our room is quite narrow but long, and we sit directly opposite the fireplace, we were advised to get a model with this sort of heat output otherwise we would be uncomfortably hot - this is just perfect, and heats the whole room comfortably.
