Coastal Fireplaces & Design


We believe a statement fireplace can complete any home.

Coastal Fireplaces and Design was born out of a desire to create beautiful spaces with the perfect fireplaces for our customers. We don’t just want to find you a heating solution but help you discover the model that best aligns with your personal design aesthetic. 



Redefining the Fireplace. 

We believe that the process of buying a fireplace has evolved into a conscious choice that considers innovation, efficiency and sustainability. That’s why we source the most revered global and local brands in wood and gas fireplaces across a wide range of indoor, outdoor and alfresco styles.

Combining technical expertise and expansive product knowledge with personalised customer service, we’ll assist you in finding a fireplace that will truly complement your new or existing home design. Our team has years of experience in delivering helpful fireplace advice to homeowners throughout Geelong and the Surf Coast. 

How Did We Get Started?  

Coastal Fireplaces began in 2018 at Waurn Ponds Homemaker Centre, where Eddie had a vision of creating a space for people to come in and experience the look of a luxury fireplace. Having already established a relationship and great reputation with Lopi Fires from a past business, we were able to begin our journey as an exclusive supplier of Lopi fireplaces.

In 2019, we extended our range to meet more of our customer‘s increasingly unique design demands. We added fireplaces from Cheminees Philippe, a modern French wood and gas fireplace manufacturer, and Modern Flames, an electric fireplace brand.

In 2020, our customers began spending more time at home, particularly in their outdoor areas. Naturally, we expanded our range to include outdoor fireplaces and firepits with Trendz Outdoor Fireplaces. 

2021 was a big year for us as we moved into our Torquay showroom, held our first trades open night, and became the preferred provider of even more reputable luxury fireplace brands including RB73. These sought-after models are still flying off our showroom floor.

In 2022, we have over 50 working displays and have become the exclusive supplier for three new brands and added two new staff members to nurture marketing and supplier relationships.


Both myself and my staff really enjoy working with the team at Coastal as they're great communicators, easy to work with, a fantastic local business with an amazing range to offer our area! Every fireplace we handled we wanted to take home ourselves! In fact, I did take home a fire pit and it is the main feature of our garden, regularly bringing friends and family together.
We highly recommend Coastal Fireplaces & Design - a fantastic local business giving our community more options for their homes and great service.

Our Most FAQ: Why Buy A Fireplace? 

A fireplace is not just a source of heat, but an inviting gathering place. When we sit down, we are entranced by the flame, and the night flies by as the conversation flows. The ambience of the flames and the warmth they create reward you with a sense of luxury, happiness and calm.
