Fire pits offer a great place to gather around with friends and family in a cozy atmosphere. Whether it's a cool afternoon in fall or a chilly spring evening, there's nothing quite like snuggling up close around the fire and chatting with your loved ones. If you can practically hear the crackling fire just thinking about it, it's time to set up your very own fire pit. Make sure it’s a great place to gather by choosing one or more of these perfect fire pit seating options.
If the seating for your fire pit needs to be versatile yet comfortable, consider choosing a modular outdoor furniture setup. A modular sofa is broken up into smaller pieces that can be arranged in different ways in order to provide the seating you need. You can keep the pieces together to form a U-shaped sectional around the fire pit or break it up into smaller pieces. Either way, your guests get a comfortable spot to sit and enjoy the glow of the fire. Curved modular couches are especially useful since they allow for cozy seating close to the fire pit.
Benches offer a simple and affordable alternative for those who like the idea of modular furniture but want something that doesn’t take up quite so much space. Small pieces like this black mesh fire pit bench by Sunnydaze are easy to move around as needed to get the perfect placement next to the fire. In addition, they can be linked up or kept separate depending on the needs of your group. For easy storage, choose benches that fold up or collapse down into a smaller size.
Love the idea of a rustic look for your fire pit? Consider using wooden stumps for your fire pit seating. Stumps are easy to move around as needed and have a nostalgic aspect that makes you feel like you’re back at summer camp. These stumps are also a very budget-friendly option if you happen to have a tree you can cut down into pieces. If you don’t, you can buy real or faux wood stumps to place around your fire.
For the most relaxing experience around your fire pit, pick Adirondack chairs from Serenity Health & Home Décor for your seating. The reclined seating position makes it ideal for looking up at the stars while you enjoy a laid-back evening outdoors. To make your Adirondack chairs around the fire pit even more comfortable, add seat and back cushions to the frames.
Are you placing your fire pit on a patio or deck? If so, consider placing it near a railing and adding a built-in bench for a seamless, space-saving seating option. Built-in benches are great for fire pits since they conform to the shape of the surrounding barrier. You can make yours out of stone or wood depending on the style of your outdoor space. Then, consider adding some cushions or throw pillows for added comfort.
Make your fire pit the most comfortable place to gather when the temperatures start to drop. Cozy up with one or more of these seating options for a warm and relaxing experience.
