Fleimio trolley is a versatile modern storage furniture that can be used for storing and moving e.g. magazines, books, firewood and jeans. It is convenient to use, because it has wheels. The fleimio trolley fits well several interiors: almost any room at home or second home, public venues, restaurants, boutiques and naturally offices.

The fleimio wine trolley and fleimio 5 shelf trolley are modifications of the original fleimio trolley. The overall design of them resembles the design of the fleimio trolley, but the wine trolley and 5 shelf trolley has five locations for the shelves, which makes it more suitable for e.g. magazines, company brochures – or naturally for wines in home parties or in cafes and bistros. Some people use the five shelf trolley for vinyl records.

Fleimio mini trolley is a versatile trolley side table that can be used as a bedside table too. One is able to store items suitable to one’s interior design in it. Moreover, it is easy to move from one place to another, because it has wheels. Therefore, one is able to easily rearrange the interior design any day.

First timer – the fleimio woodhopper – is a firewood cart, that helps moving, transporting and storing the firewood. As all other fleimio products, the fleimio woodhopper is designed in Finland.

Additionally, fleimio will bring some novelties too, but is not yet ready to tell about the novelties. There are rumours that at least some of the novelties may be new colours for the fleimio firewood carts…

Fleimio Launched Novelties at the Maison & Objet Paris 8.-12th of September 2017

Design company fleimio from finland exhibited for the 5th time at the Maison & Objet trade fair in Paris on the 8.-12th of September. The stand of fleimio D7 was located in a great location in hall 7 (now! design a vivre!) where fleimio presented its novelties widening its range of modern storage furnitures.

It was already five years ago, when fleimio exhibited for the first time at M&O. At that time – the stand was its representatives La Boutique Scandinave’s / AG Sarl’s who represents also other Scandinavian brands in the competitive French market.

Fleimio-Novelties

At that time, fleimio had only one product at the fair – the fleimio trolley (look photo on the left) – the modern log holder. However, since 2014 the fleimio assortment has grown a lot.

This year 2017 fleimio exhibited several novelties for the professionals at the fair.

Fleimio Novelties

For the first time at Maison & Objet, the visitors got a chance to get acquainted with fleimio woodhopper, a firewood cart for transporting firewood and with fleimio wine trolley, which is a modified version of the fleimio trolley dedicated for serving wines in home parties, catering or in restaurants and bistros.


Fleimio Woodhopper



Fleimio-Woodhopper

Especially the visitors from France and from Asia were interested in the fleimio woodhopper, which is an agile firewood cart, as it has only one wheel due to the fact that yards and gardens – at least in the Nordic countries – are not even and flat. The yards near the French Alps are definitely not flat! Almost every visitor at fleimio stand wanted to test drive the fleimio woodhopper.

Visitor Feedback regarding the Fleimio Woodhopper:

visitors-feedback

Majority of the visitors considered the price of the fleimio woodhopper reasonable being a product 100% designed and manufactured in Finland. However, almost all the visitors – especially those who test drove the cart – were most satisfied with the usability of the fleimio woodhopper. Nevertheless, there were people, who did not understand the advantages of having only one wheel.

Fleimio Wine Trolley

The other novelty – fleimio wine trolley – gathered a lot of interested visitors too. The fleimio wine trolley is a modification of the original fleimio trolley. The design of the trolley is actually the same, but in the wine model, there are wooden shelves designed for the standard size wine bottles. The fleimio wine trolley can take max 10 bottles of wine, which is quite ok quantity for big home parties not to mention the events and hospitalities in restaurant and/or bistros.

fleimio-wine-trolley

The visitors at the fair gave the fleimio wine trolley a nick name “perfect evening”. The reason behind this was, that in the exhibition sample, there were books on the top shelf, then several bottles of wine – and high-end Finnish birch logs in the bottom.

The design of the fleimio wine trolley was the key. The pleasant outlook of the trolley and its characteristics of Scandinavian design with the aesthetics of the Nordic lifestyle were highly appreciated.

Additionally, the visitors liked the touch and feel of the trolley: the high-end birch with careful work by the carpenters, obtained a lot of positive feedback. Naturally, the price of the wine trolley should be lower. However, when considering the fact that first the birch needs to grow up 50 – 70 years, the price is acceptable remembering that  the fleimio trolleys are manufactured, assembled and quality controlled in the EU.

Visitors Feedback regarding the Fleimio Wine Trolley:

All in all, the Maison & Objet Paris was nice to fleimio, who exhibited for the first time on its own stand. Design company fleimio is concentrated on the trolleys and carts and promotes their playful use (versatility, many ways how to use, many places where one can use them). The fleimio trolleys and carts belong to a new category of modern storage furnitures.  The benefit of the fleimio’s modern storage furnitures is that they have wheels.

How to Select a Proper Way to Transport Firewood to the Fireplace

People in the Nordic Countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland) burn a lot firewood in their fireplaces in order to warm up their houses during the winter when the outdoor temperature is often freezen (below 0 centigrades).

Traditionally the firewood are carried by using a log holder or a cardboard box. However, winters are long and not many people have enough strenght to do this. Additionally, the distance from the woodshed to the fireplace may be long.

When selecting a tool to transport firewood to the fireplace – there are plenty of alternatives. Here below a short introduction to each.

Fireplaces have various characteristics that ought to be considered when thinking of storing and managing firewood supply. In the first place the physical dimensions of the fireplace set limits for the firewood logs’ thickness and lenght. In general, it is not advisable to store dry logs too near the fireplace because of fire safety. Moreover, we recommend to follow the guides set for storing firewood.  Fireplaces can be categorized as following;  stoves, baking & heating ovens, fireplaces and design fireplaces. Each of them have their extra characteristics that should be taken into consideration.

Log holders are portable baskets, boxes or fixed racks. Difference between these options are size and therefore easiness of use and outlook. Firewood are normally stored in a wood shed. Moving the logs from the wood shed to the fireplace should be taken care of. It is obvious, that fixed firewood racks are pretty solid pieces of furniture. One should select a log holder with a proper size – since it results in heaviness of the holder.

When talking about storing the firewood indoors, one can have the logs in the log holder. Another option is to build a solid firewood stand that suit the interior design. However, one needs to remember that the logs need to be transported  to the solid firewood rack.

Wheeled storing solutions are actually log holders with wheels. They are useful in transporting the firewood easily from the woodshed to the fireplace. Additionally, they may take much more firewood to be transported compared to the regular log holders. The wheeled storing solutions have one more extra benefit: they are easy to relocate in interior design, which gives new  possibilities for example to have the firewood visible or to have them not visible.

There are several carts for transporting firewood available. Most of them are designed for transporting the firewood. When thinking of transporting the firewood, one critical question is the location of the woodshed: outdoors or indoors. Design company fleimio from Finland has developed a new solution for wheeled firewood transportation: a firewood carts that also looks good.
