Store and Season your Firewood Stylishly

If you have a wood-burning stove or an open fire, these Woodstock geometric metal storage units by Parker & Coop are a smart way to store your timber.

The units are handmade in England, in Surrey, from steel or aluminium and are available in four key shapes: circles, squares, triangles and hexagons.

It's not just about how smart they look either, the units are designed for optimal log seasoning, so even if you like to have a stash of logs in an alcove beside the chimney breast, you can store them in a Woodstock unit first to ensure they are properly seasoned.

Each of the pieces ranges from 50cm to 2 meters high and can be used as a stand-alone unit or combined with additional elements to increase storage capacity and enable you to create your own unique storage option.

There are two finishes – a specifically aged rusty patina or a powder-coated paint finish available in any RAL colour.

The Woodstock collection combines the practical need to season logs and store easy to access firewood within a smart and stylish storage unit.

The Woodstock design team can also create a bespoke design, so you can have a storage unit that will be the perfect configuration and colour for your space.

The metal units are available at Parker & Coop (opens in new tab) and can be used both indoors and outdoors but if you store wood outside make sure it is properly seasoned and dry before you burn it.
