Founded in 1947 by James Okell.

Jim was a design leader in our industry and was very influential in fireplace accessory design. He produced the highest quality accessories with hand finished and handcrafted beauty. Workmanship and quality were essential to the items he produced and he displayed them with pride.

Okell’s Fireplace in San Francisco continues the tradition of producing and selling the finest quality fireplace equipment. Believing workmanship, high quality materials, and knowledge are essential ingredients to every item we sell, Okell’s Fireplace has been helping to keep California homes warm for over 70 years!

Okell’s Original Designs

Along with the finest brands we sell, we have also created our own line of hand-made, high quality, custom fireplace equipment and accessories—Okell’s Originals™.  Every Okell’s Original™ is a true one-of-a-kind work of art.  There are no two pieces alike as many are hand-forged, and have the oneness of their color and detail.

Okell’s Original™ products are limited in production, signed originals, available exclusively through Okell’s Fireplace. These classic styles and innovative designs add a unique detail to any home.

You can see our original designs on the Accessories page of this web site, and in our showroom.
