Look #1: Desert Modern

If you live in a dry environment with lots of sunshine and cool nights, the desert modern look may be your match. Characterized by simple lines, rough textures and classic Western patterns, this style is a stunning mix of contemporary and traditional touches.

Look #1: Modern Lines

If you want to add a fresh look to your fire pit area, consider choosing midcentury modern-inspired seating. This low-slung lounge chair has a Danish-modern style that's unexpected when paired with a rustic fire pit.

Look #1: Bowl-Shaped Fire Pit

Bowl-shaped fire pits are a perfect fit for smaller outdoor spaces, and they come in a variety of styles, too. If you live in an area with harsh weather, consider a rustic, bowl-shaped fire pit that will start to patina over the years.

Look #1: Party-Ready Cart

Modern, wooden bar carts in teak or walnut add clean, simple lines and a touch of richness to a space. Keep in mind that wooden bar carts will likely require restaining or oiling at least once per year to look their best.

Look #2: Light + Bright

This welcoming poolside patio is outfitted with classic seating and punchy, garden-inspired colors.

Look #2: Spherical Fire Pit

When space is tight, consider a spherical fire pit that takes advantage of vertical space. Since it's elevated off the ground, the center of the patio feels more open with more space for furniture and guests.

Look #2: Low-Slung Seating

Adirondack chairs are timeless and evoke a cool, casual vibe. If you're looking for a traditional look on your patio, consider Adirondack chairs in punchy, painted finishes. Add bold outdoor pillows and throws to cozy things up.

Look #2: Punchy Hues

If you're stuck on figuring out your design style, we may have found your match. Updated traditional is an excellent option for homeowners with traditional taste who opt for something a bit fresher in the color department. Here, the traditional Adirondack chairs are updated with a punchy lime-green finish, while the contemporary style of the spherical fire pit gives the space a modern touch.

Look #2: Side Tables

Ensure guests have plenty of space for drinks and snacks by adding side tables between pairs of chairs.

Look #3: Architectural

Take the architectural route to your fire pit area with sculptural furniture, minimal decor and a contemporary chiminea. To create a focal point and ground the space, opt for a chiminea standing at least five feet tall.

Look #3: Fold-Up Chairs

Make it simple to set up your outdoor space with lightweight, collapsible chairs and easy-to-store throw pillows.

Look #3: Chiminea

Aesthetically speaking, chimineas are more similar to fireplaces. A chiminea contains the fire and retains more heat. Like a funnel, the fire, the heat and the smoke soars through the chiminea, shrinking in size.

Look #3: Industrial Touch

Looking to add a bit of an urban touch to your fire pit area? Incorporate an industrial-style bar cart mixed of wood and metal.
