This rectangular fire pit has so many wow factors to love. If you’ve got the landscape space to put it in, it’s a table, footrest and bench–what else could you want? With its solid construction and clean lines, it’s a modern statement to be sure. But it can be softened up with the use of soft, rounded chair styles, plush cushions and of course, smiles.

The classic bowl type fire pit can work just about anywhere. Options range from portable tabletop versions to actual table size and can be traditional or uber modern like this example. With colors running the gamut from natural stone and cement finishes to rust, copper and darker hues, the choice is yours! Try lining a patio ledge with a few small or medium sized bowls–or go with a large statement piece that can’t help but be gathered around.

Who doesn’t love an outdoor beach or cabin open fire? Stacked to burn fast and long, this familiar pyramidal arrangement of wood recalls camping, sing-a-longs and tasty treats. But if you don’t want the wood chip mess and don’t have the space to dig a large pit to put it in, how about a thoroughly modern game of fire? Using bioethanol fuel and stainless steel is the latest way to have a soot-, smoke- and ash-free way to get the campfire look and feel you love.

It’s hard not to swoon over this modern outdoor lounge area! Choose a square or rectangular fire table that has wide, low-lying edges for placing nibbles and keeping the ambiance of the fire in full view. Building a privacy wall with strategically placed frosted inserts still lets daylight in without compromising your cozy factor. Keeping throws and pillows handy ensures you’ll stay warm, even in the corners.

If space is limited or if you’re looking to complement a long or very large space, consider tabletop fire pits that can be placed on top of posts, pillars, steps and more. They’re perfect on a small table for two and cast a beautiful glow. Grouped in multiples, they can make a larger fire statement or line the edge of your deck or pool. Using two or more sizes, you can make a staggered style statement that’s subtly sophisticated and intimate.

Linger on the lounge with a statement fire piece that’s part table, part fire pit. With plenty of room for putting your feet up or playing a game of cards, this off-center fire table configures best within a linear type of arrangement, where its unique design and size can complement larger lounge furniture pieces. It can also bring structure to an otherwise lush outdoor surrounding with definitive lines and a smooth surface.
