Lopi Greenfield large gas stove

The Greenfield™ cast iron gas stove is a true revolution in stove design. Combining clean lines, graceful proportionality and traditional cast appeal, this stove can be considered a freestanding fireplace! The number-one feature on the Greenfield is the incredibly large 553 square inches of fire-viewing glass. The open, three-side glass design allows you to view the incredibly realistic log set and dancing-flames from any angle in the room. Another incredible feature on the Greenfield gas stove is the downward pointing accent light. This feature beautifully highlights the logs from the top, giving the fire a radiance never before offered in a freestanding stove. The adjustable accent light can also be used when the fire is turned on low or even off to highlight the stove interior for year round enjoyment!

The Greenfield is designed to be a powerhouse of a heater, producing up to 40,000 BTUs and heating up to 2,000 feet! But the this stove is also exceptionally “Green” to own and operate.
