Our Story

Blazing Design proudly supports The Vermont Children's Trust Foundation. 

Mike Van Buren, PE, founder and President, has been creating unique hearth products for nearly two decades.  In 2000 he started Blazing Design, Inc. to bring custom fireplaces and fire features to homes and businesses.  

Blazing Design has grown since the early days.  To better serve clients, Mike and his partner (and spouse) Sueann have opened a new showroom at 446 Shunpike Road in Williston, Vermont, offering complete sales, maintenance and repair services for all your hearth product needs. 


Both graduates of the University of Vermont, Mike and Sueann take pride in a reputation for great quality and unsurpassed customer satisfaction.  In addition to owning and operating Blazing Design, Mike and Sueann are parents to three bright young women, Allison, Katie and Rose and Violet the pup!  They reside, with their youngest daughter Rose and dog, Violet, in Essex Junction.

Meet Troy Anger.

Troy has been with Blazing Design since Fall 2016.  He is a great asset to the team with a gregarious laugh and fun loving spirit.  He works hard with Mike and Tim, not afraid to be up high on a roof top! 

Troy loves climbing and can often be found at Petra Cliffs when he's not working at Blazing Design.  He proudly serves in the Army National Guard and is one of their champion biathletes.  Troy lives in Shelburne.
