Spicing up your outdoor area means striking just the right balance between keeping things stylish while showing restraint and letting Mother Nature take center stage. One crowd-pleasing way to incorporate the elements into your design? Fire pits. With a form-meets-function appeal that will elevate your outdoor evenings and (quite literally) warm up your home, these eye-catching fixtures also come in an array of options. From elaborate stone or tile structures that are permanent additions to your deck landscape, to metal prisms just the right size for keeping chaise areas toasty, to stunning design features that flank the pool for a statement-making flourish, there’s a style out there to match your space.
