Nothing says cozy and comfortable like flames flickering in a backyard fire pit. A glowing fire warms up chilly winter days and extends summer gatherings long after the sun goes down. If you are looking to create a stay-at-home oasis that you can enjoy with family and friends all year long, a fire pit might be the solution you’re looking for. Castelle offers a selection of custom match-lit fire pits that bring ambiance, style and function to raise the luxury factor of your outdoor room. Here are a few tips to think about as you begin your quest to design the fire pit of your dreams.
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
No outdoor space is the same, so your fire pit shouldn’t be the same either. If it’s too big it can overwhelm your patio or if its too small it will feel like an afterthought. The Castelle line up of handcrafted, custom fire pits make it easy to create a personalized piece—so there’s no reason so settle for something that doesn’t fit perfectly. Select from round, rectangular or square shapes with multiple leg designs and configurations. You can also decide if you want coffee table, bar table or dining table height, depending on how you want to incorporate fire into your space. All Castelle fire pits are constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum and extrusions providing the ultimate in strength and durability.
Once you choose your fire pit shape and size it’s time for the fun part—selecting the beautiful table top. Castelle is known for its artisan craftsmanship, and its selection of fire pit table tops are an extension of its luxurious furniture designs. There’s a wide range of unique styles to choose from to match any decor. The Classical top brings warmth with a traditional style. The Nature’s Wood “faux wood” cast aluminum tops mimic the look of real wood. The Moderna top brings a clean, contemporary look that blends with today’s modern furniture. All the table tops can be customized with different edges and finish technique options to create a design that is uniquely yours. To complete the look of your fire pit, you can choose from black, clear or tequila fire pit glass that make the flames sparkle for hours of enjoyment.

Now that you’ve created your ultimate fire pit there’s still one important thing left—the seating. If you are going to spend hours chatting, eating and drinking with guests by the fire you’ll want to be comfortable. Choosing the right furniture to relax in is just as important as choosing the right fire pit. Consider a cushioned sectional sofa that can be configured in a variety ways like the Eclipse collection that pairs nicely with the Icon fire table or the Villa Bianca crescent sofa that snuggles up perfectly to round fire pits. If you decide to go with a fire pit dining table, select dining chairs that provide comfort and support like the Roma or Monterey cushioned dining chairs. Add side tables, an ottoman and an all-weather rug to create a cozy spot that will be the centerpiece of your outdoor room.
