Art and design, form and function meld beautifully in this fire pit, which features wood storage. Garden designer Rochelle Greayer points out, “When you are choosing a firepit, consider the look of your landscape and your other garden accoutrements, so your space will feel integrated. I love a rusted metal finish—it is beautiful and looks great with almost any style—cottage, modern, southwestern, and even traditional.” Whether you choose a fire pit that burns wood, propane, or gel, buying a high quality piece and protecting it in winter will give you years of use.

A fire pit can be sculptural as well utilitarian. Greayer suggests, “Firepits are big items and create significant spaces that affect traffic patterns in your yard or landscape. Asking yourself what you will do with the fire pit not only helps you choose the best type, it will also help you determine where to place it.” Will you cook there, entertain friends for cocktails, or use it to extend your outdoor season? By answering these questions, you can assess the type of seating and other furnishings you will need.

Watching fire can light up our imaginations, and feeling its warmth can provide comfort so deep, it is primal. According to Rochelle Greayer, creator of Studio “g” and founder and editor of Leaf Magazine, “Firepits are wonderful for creating a destination in your landscape. They can create a gathering place or a spot for a private getaway.” These firepits are both elegant and simple, and when grouped together create an atmosphere that is evocative and dramatic.
