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.
The choice of materials can make your fire pit feel as though it is a seamless extension of your existing landscape design. Although the larger paving stones on this elegant and Mediterranean-style patio gave way to smaller version in the fire pit, the color palette remains mostly the same, helping preserve cohesion.
Adding a fire pit as part of your landscaping will extend the enjoyment of your backyard for you and your guests. They provide warmth, light, a cooking source, and ambiance, making them a natural gathering spot for socializing, entertaining, and relaxation. People are drawn to the campfire-like atmosphere, and before you know it, there will be story-telling and laughter. A fire pit can also serve as an important focal point in your outdoor landscape design. When placed where it can be easily seen from your interior living space, it can be enjoyed from the indoors as well.
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.
