Fireplace, Woodstove & Garden Accessories

About Us

2016 - desk_drafting_Ruchika

We are a fam­ily-owned busi­ness which was started in 1977, with Min­ute­man Inter­na­tional, mak­ing acces­sories for fire­places and wood­stoves. We suc­cess­fully estab­lished our­selves as an indus­try leader in hearth prod­ucts and in 1994, launched Achla Designs, intro­duc­ing fine wrought-iron pieces for the home and gar­den. Our in-house design team brings together var­ied exper­tise- mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing, archi­tec­ture, fine art, sculp­ture and met­al­lurgy, to cre­ate and develop a wide array of prod­ucts. Every­thing is man­u­fac­tured to our par­tic­u­lar spec­i­fi­ca­tions, using a vari­ety of man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­niques and mate­ri­als.

We have two avid gar­den­ers on our team as well as a few friends that we ask to try our prod­ucts in their own land­scapes. You can see some of our gar­dens here on Houzz. In New Eng­land we have a short grow­ing sea­son, but a beau­ti­ful autumn and a rich tra­di­tion of black­smithing. Since 2003, each Octo­ber, at peak foliage time, we part­ner with the City of Fitch­burg and The Fitch­burg Art Museum to spon­sor the Annual Forge-In Fes­ti­val. This event brings stu­dents, hob­by­ists and mas­ters alike to the town, for a con­ge­nial on-site black­smithing com­pe­ti­tion, demon­stra­tion and exhi­bi­tion, cel­e­brat­ing our com­mu­nity and pro­mot­ing the blacksmith’s craft.

2008 - forgein_tents2009_forgein_MadacsiWC-11_out0Our com­pany has grown steadily over the years, and we have all worked hard to build a rep­u­ta­tion for beau­ti­ful qual­ity prod­ucts, at an afford­able price, which enhance the domes­tic expe­ri­ence. We have new pro­duct intro­duc­tions each year and also con­tinue to offer the peren­nial favorites. We hope you enjoy!

Issues regard­ing ship­ping, or receiv­ing wrong or dam­aged items can only be resolved by directly con­tact­ing the orig­i­nal mer­chant from whom you made the pur­chase. That said, we are strongly com­mit­ted to pro­duc­ing con­sis­tent, qual­ity pro­duct. If you have a spec­i­fi­ca­tion ques­tion or a war­ranty or parts issue, please con­tact us and we will get you the infor­ma­tion or item you need.
