7 Stylish Fire Pits To Own
Elevate the style and temperature of any backyard with these seven offerings.
Camping, let’s be honest, isn’t for everyone. But if you want to enjoy the same vibe of sitting around a roaring campfire without leaving the comforts of home, you can invest in a stylish fire pit—so you can roast s’mores and enjoy cool summer evenings with friends and family.
There are two main options of fire pit on the market: gas or wood. It doesn’t much matter what kind of fuel you choose, but some will prefer the less messy propane option, while others might lean towards the more outdoorsy appeal of throwing a log on an open flame. Whichever you lean towards, there’s plenty of different design options to choose from. Here, a few of our favourites.
Solo Stove Yukon Wood Burning Fire Pit
The full stainless-steel look may be a bit too utilitarian for some, but there’s no denying that Solo Stove’s pit is smartly designed. The double-wall minimises smoke, and it comes with a stand that both raises it up and lets cool airflow through. Best of all, since it burns so efficiently, there won’t be big piles of ash to clean up later.
Williams Sonoma Home Fire Table
A wood-burning fire pit can be a bit messy. Gas pits like this one make cleanup less of a hassle, as all you’ll have to do is pour a bit of propane or the eco-friendly option, bioethanol, and you’re good to go. The brutalist, concrete look adds a nice aesthetic touch.

Lane Venture South Hampton Round Fire Pit
Lane Venture’s gas offering is classically elegant. Its handwoven fibres can withstand a storm or two, and starting a fire and cleaning up after it is easy. It even comes with some rocks, so you can get the outdoor party started straight away.
Modway Outdoor Fire Table
Modway’s pit doesn’t really look like a pit at all, but like just another piece of functional outdoor furniture. The gas pit comes with glass beads to get the fire started, and its rattan-esque design is durable enough to make it through a bit of bad weather (though you may not want to be gathered around it then).

Mackenzie-Childs Zanzibar Fire Pit
It looks more like a souped-up birdcage than a fire pit, but that’s what makes this option stand out. It’s made of powder-coated steel that’s been painted to achieve a rusty, weathered look. And while its footprint is too small to get a big roaring fire going, there’s no better patio centrepiece for those looking to make a statement.

Room & Board Adara Fire Table
Room & Board’s fire pit is pretty minimalist. If you’ve got a bunch of big, bold pieces of furniture already populating your front yard, then this may be just the thing to balance all that out. There are options here too: You can choose between black or white colourways as well as a propane or natural gas hookup.

Plodes Studio Geometric Fire Pit
This fire pit goes for a more angular look, bringing some style to the great outdoors. Made of Corten steel, it’s incredibly resilient, and can be used to burn charcoal or wood. You can even buy a grate top and transform it into a grill for barbecues.
