Twin-Star International’s New Patent Pending 3D Flame Effect Creates Even More Realistic Looking Flames

Delray Beach, FL, July 11, 2016 – Twin-Star International, the premier designer and manufacturer of electric fireplaces and home furnishings, today announced that it is now offering its patent pending three-dimensional (“3D”) flame effect, which is available for its stove, firebox and wall hanging units. For years, Twin-Star International’s ClassicFlame electric fireplaces have been an industry leader. Most recently, Twin-Star introduced Spectrafire and Spectrafire Plus, a customizable flame effect offering a gentle flickering flame to a roaring fire in multiple colors, speeds and brightness with the touch of a button. With the introduction of the new 3D flame effect, Twin-Star brings to market the next generation of realistic electric fireplace flames.

“Our 3D flame effect represents the next generation of realistic electric fireplace flames, offering the most lifelike LED flame technology available at or near the same cost as conventional electric fireplace inserts,” said Marc Sculler, Twin-Star Co-President.

To create the new ultra-realistic 3D flame effect, the flames are positioned in front and behind the log set to generate the look and feel of a real wood-burning fireplace. The new 3D firebox uses multi-layered flame LED technology to produce the most realistic and groundbreaking flame experience, creating a three-dimensional fire with added depth. The patent pending 3D firebox plugs into a standard outlet and has advanced safety features. It can be used to provide supplemental zone heating for 1,000 square feet or used without heat to add ambiance to a room.

Visit the Twin-Star Las Vegas Market showroom, A-1016, July 31 – August 4, to experience the new patent pending 3D flame technology.

Twin-Star International’s Celebrity Status Soars with a Host of Nationally Televised Product Placements

 

Twin-Star International’s Celebrity Status Soars with a Host of Nationally Televised Product Placements

Delray Beach, Florida, August 28, 2014 –Twin-Star International, an award-winning home furnishings manufacturer of quality furniture, bath vanities, thermoelectric wine coolers and electric heaters, is quickly gaining celebrity status with a host of nationally televised product placements featured in several top home and remodeling TV programs.

HGTV’s hit Love It or List It recently featured the “Raines” high-gloss white vanity from Twin-Star’s Luxe Bath Works line of bathroom furniture on the episode entitled “Blended Families”. The 30” two-door and two-drawer vanity offering additional storage space is highlighted in the renovation of a 1,000 square foot house. The segment will air again on September 15. On Love It or List It, the home owning family has to decide between keeping their newly renovated current home (“Love It”) or buy a new home and sell their current one (“List It”). This is done with the help of hosts Hilary Farr, designer, and David Visentin, Realtor. Hilary handles design and renovation on the current home, and David finds the couple potential new homes.

Twin-Star’s ClassicFlame Pro “Builder Box” fireplace aired last spring in two episodes of The Vanilla Ice Project! on the DIY network. Clips from the show can be viewed on the Twin-Star Facebook page. A Builder Box is a kit that can be installed into a wall, which can then house an electric fireplace insert. Robert Van Winkle, better known as rapper Vanilla Ice, loved the ClassicFlame electric “Florida fireplace” that can be used with or without heat to cozy up the family room. In The Vanilla Ice Project, Vanilla Ice demonstrates his expertise in real estate and home renovation by renovating houses along with a team of handymen.

Earlier this year, a pair of “Raines” bath vanities from LUXE Bath Works appeared on the show Flipping Boston in an episode dedicated to helping the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The homeowner was thrilled with the Raines vanities and said that his new bathroom now looked like a “hotel bathroom.” The clip from this show can also be viewed on the Twin-Star Facebook page.

What does the future hold? According to Twin-Star’s Director of Marketing, Brian Brigham, “the Twin-Star Tresanti thermoelectric Cabernet Wine Cabinet will be appearing in the upcoming comedy “Wedding Ringer” starring Kevin Hart and Kaley Cuoco set for release in 2015. And our ClassicFlame “Elysium” Wall Fireplace was recently requested for an upcoming episode of the new Raycom syndicated show Fix It & Finish It” where host Antonio Sabato Jr. travels the country helping people renovate and update their homes. Stay tuned, more Twin-Star stars are coming!”

Twin-Star International Celebrates National Dog Day

Yesterday, our nation celebrated man’s best friend, the dog. Twin-Star International didn’t want to miss out on the action, so the company celebrated National Dog Day by throwing a “Dog Days of Summer” bash at the company’s headquarters in Delray Beach, Florida. In observance of National Dog Day, employees were encouraged to bring their furry friends to work. The celebrations included a dog photo shoot with a dog/owner look alike contest, pet adoptions from the Tri-County Humane Society, Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue and Island Paws Rescue. A hot dog bar with all the fixings was also provided for the (human) employees and of course lots of treats for the pooches too – including homemade organic treats sold by Joanne Schnieder.

Twin-Star is also hosting a dog food drive through September 5th, which they then plan to donate to the shelters that participated in their “Dog Days Of Summer” celebration.
