One day, in 2015, I was looking for a new coffee table. I came upon a totally unique indoor coffee table with a fireplace built into it, but it was priced ridiculously out of my budget.  The more I searched around for a comparable and affordable solution the more I found I wasn’t alone in my search. After scouring the marketplace with no luck for reasonably price bio-ethanol furniture, a friend and I joked I ought to make my own.

Like any good joke, there was some truth in it, and thus the impetus for Northern Elements was born. I quit my job at Harley Davidson, hit the drawing board, did my diligence in finding a perfect manufacturer, and after what seemed like a hundred iterations I settled on one that worked. It wasn’t long before I had a product I was satisfied with. A safe, striking, unique luxury piece of fire furniture at a fraction of the cost of the rest.

Born in the midwest, inspired by the frigid winters of the north, this is the result of our attempts to bring bioethanol furniture within reach of the average hardworking person. We are Northern Elements.

General Usage

Where can I get fuel?

US safety regulations make moving flammable liquids a burden for a small company like ours. Fortunately there’s plenty of fairly priced fuel already on Amazon, just ensure to search “bioethanol fuel” only. No other kinds of fuel will work.

How much heat does it produce?

Our standard burner puts out about 5000 btus of heat, it will make a noticeable difference in any small to mid square footage rooms.

Can I use it as a primary heat source?

No, absolutely not. It produces heat as a by product but like a candle this flame is meant for aesthetics only.

How far away from things should it be?

Keep all other furniture and items 1 meter away from the top of the flame. The bottom can be rested directly on the ground and remains cool to the touch.

How do I light it?

Use a long kitchen lighter only. Do not use a match or other short style lighter.


Custom Orders?

You dream it, we can make it. For the best price anywhere. Period. Get in touch via the contact form and we will make it happen – any amount, any color, any configuration.

Does this violate my housing agreement?

No, this is legally classified as a candle so if those are allowed in your agreement, you should be fine.
