Sculpt is proud to be the sole importer of Seguin, Axis and Bordelet fireplaces, with exclusive distribution rights throughout Australia and New Zealand.


Established in 1976 by Mrs Duteriez and Mr Seguin, Cheminées Seguin Duteriez originially specilised in the production of traditional open fireplaces made from natural French stones from different regions of France such as Gard, Dordogne, Bourgogne and Charentes. Made by stone masons the company was instantly recognized for the quality of the stone cutting.

In the late seventies, Mr Duteriez had the idea to make his fireplaces more efficient. At this time, he created the first Seguin cast iron insert to fit inside the stone mantels. The success was immediate and the people of France started to turn their traditional open fireplaces into enclosed fires.

To reply to the growing demand all over France, Seguin started to establish a network of specialized and trained dealers to re-sell and install Seguin fireboxes.


In 1997, Mr Seguin and Mrs Duteriez sold their company to the De Galembert family. First Antoine De Galembert, ran the company and expanded the network of dealers all over western, central and eastern Europe.



In 2005, his son Aymeric de Galembert took over the company and has continued his fathers work on the domestic and international markets.


In 2006, Seguin bought JC Bordelet and in 2009 added Axis to the portfolio. The brands are now known all over France, with a network of dealers established in France, Europe and the Middle East.



In 2016 the Seguin Duteriez Group launches themselves into the Australian & New Zealand market place through exclusive distribution by Sculpt Fireplace Collection. This combination gives a new plateau of fireplace innovations and cutting technological advances never before on the Australasian market.

Proud to announce some of Australias fireplace firsts, Sculpt Fireplace Collection now offers the first remote control operated wood heater in Australia (IHS Technology), the largest double sided wood heater available on the Australian market and the patented four sided glass wood heater.

Axis, Bordelet and Seguin are now available to Australia and New Zealand audiences by Australian owned company, Sculpt Fireplace Collection.



With the integration of Axis and Bordelet products, Seguin is now the first company combining three different ranges of wood heating appliances (traditional cast iron fireboxes with Seguin, lineal fireboxes with Axis and designer suspended fireplaces with JC Bordelet). The strength of the Seguin group is that it has always kept the roots and spirit of it’s brands and products, with the three companies sharing the same philosophy…

“To combine quality craftsmanship with exquisite design at the forefront.”

Now, Seguin has a network of 250 dealers all over France and is exporting to 30 countries. It employs120 people: 80 in the head office at Randan, 20 in Montpellier (Bordelet) and 20 in Balley (Axis).

Igniting inspiration with a new dimension in fireplace design is now an easy choice. Available now in Australia and New Zealand- exclusively at Sculpt.
