Favorite Fire Pits for the Holiday Season
Fire pits and chimineas are welcome additions to most outdoor spaces, infusing the area with style, charm and warmth. A fire pit can easily transform a backyard or patio from a dull, inhospitable space to the social center of your home. Since the it will likely become the focal point of your patio, you will want to pick out a piece that fits your aesthetic and personality. Look for a piece of functional art that fits properly in the space allotted and stays within your budget. The good news is, you can obtain a beautiful, high quality piece for an amazingly low price. The following are five outdoor patio pits and chimineas that our team are particularly excited about this holiday season.
1. Fleur de Lis
The Fleur de Lis is a favorite because it proudly showcases the French symbol that often signifies perfection, light, and life. This high quality, hand crafted piece is also one of the most unique pits on the market. Each one is individually signed by the designer, Rick Wittrig, and is made from thick carbon steel.
2. Full Moon Party Fire Doom
The Full Moon Party Fire Doom is another favorite because it is affordable, unique and durable. This artistic piece was designed in the USA and created with the finest materials possible, including powder-coated steel. The design is so exquisite. If you are looking for a pit that will turn heads and keep visitors talking, this is unquestionably the choice for you.
3. The Azteca
If you prefer a gas powered pit for your patio, the Azteca is a great option. The Azteca has the same textured look as clay, but the FirEx composition makes it more durable. Another plus is that the flame can be adjusted from 20,000 to 32,000 btu depending on your needs.
4. Grape Style Chiminea Outdoor Fireplace
Chimineas are very similar to patio pits in the fact that they add physical and design warmth to your outdoor space, however chimineas often have a more rustic look. The Grape Style Chiminea is the most popular outdoor fireplace because it is affordable, well made and functional. We love the Grape Style Chiminea for its detailed grape leaf design and cast iron grill insert.
If you are going for a more modern look in your backyard or patio, you will love the tidal fire pit. Each tidal fire pit is made from one quarter inch carbon steel, the heaviest gauge metal used in any fire pit. Similar to the Fleur de Lis, it is also hand crafted by Rick Wittrig for his Fire Pit Art brand. The 1-1/2 rain drain in the bottom of the tidal fire pit is another highly functional feature that we appreciate.
Adding a fire pit to your outdoor space allows your family and friends to come together in a relaxed setting, making better use of your backyard or patio even in the chillier months of the year. Don’t be surprised if they keep coming back to enjoy the cozy and relaxed ambiance created by the warm glow of a new fire pit.
