How Fire Got Its Mojo Back
There was a time not long ago — say about 400,000 years — when fire was kind of a big deal. We think it's about time that fire got its mojo back. It’s had a long life, but fire has never looked better than it does in the latest designs of wood-burning and propane fire pits, the cozy contemporary accessories that are populating patios everywhere and catching on like, well, wildfire.
If you’re a bonfire enthusiast, there’s no substitute for the crackling, aromatic spectacle of a wood-burning fire pit. The high-heat fires of wood-burning pits are ideal for warming up large patios and decks. Add a grill grate, and your wood-fueled fire becomes an instant BBQ party, s’mores maker for the kids, or Cajun cooking gourmand's assistant.
The evolution and contemporary designs of fire pit exteriors is vast and remarkable. Their contemporary designs feature beautiful granite and slate tile tops, with handsome fire bowls in stainless steel, copper, and other durable metals. For capturing the rustic style so beloved these days, the natural rust finish of a Patina fire pit is a surefire decorating win.
If instant ambiance is your idea of the patio life, you might consider propane fire pit tables to set a friendly or romantic outdoor atmosphere. Propane fires burn at a lower heat than wood, but they emit no smoke or sparks (no more clothing with summer-camp smell!), and they start as easy as pushing a button — no firewood or Boy Scout merit badge required. Propane fires can also be uniquely fascinating to watch, especially when the flames flicker across the reflecting surface of fire glass. As conversation-starting patio centerpieces, propane fire pits never fail to spark interest.
Give some thought to material and configuration options that complement your lifestyle (don't forget to read customer reviews, too). Cast aluminum has become a more popular fire pit material in recent years, thanks to its lightweight strength and natural durability and weather-resistance. You'll find all kinds of decorative and functional solutions for a variety of outdoor settings, from chimineas and camp-style fire pit rings to propane-fueled columns, coffee tables, and chat and dining sets.
Finally, don't forget to take a look at accessories. In order to create a total experience around a warm, golden fire in a fire pit, you'll want firewood racks, protective covers and screens, fire glass rocks, and more. And on the top of your to-get list? Marshmallows, of course.
