People naturally want to draw closer together when seated around a fire pit. This elegant tall version includes a few enviable features. More comfy seats equal fewer spots for a side table; the fire pit eliminates that need with enough height to double as a narrow shelf, too. Two materials offer subtle textural and color contrast in the patio space to help heighten visual interest.
Above-ground fire pits can be constructed from a variety of materials. The most popular options are brick, natural stone and concrete blocks, such as Belgard retaining wall products. Although design options are endless, most fire pits are either round or square. One reason has to do with the shape of standard fire pit liners.
Loose and casual, the distinctive design of this fire pit makes it feel as though it springs naturally from the paved patio area. Although the fire pit is a central part of the secluded backyard, the homeowners tucked it in a seating corner, surrounding it with benches and chairs to better manage the main traffic flow in the landscape.
The wide range of portable fire pit options means it’s easy (and not overly expensive) to try one out before diving into a permanent location or design. However, make sure to measure the fire pit space available and review existing details in your home and furniture to help guide your purchase. Here, the pretty curve in the chairs as well as the richly finished color supplied easy guidance for the choice of focal point fire pit. Another welcome detail: The outdoor space includes a clever nook for stashing needed firewood.
