Fire pits with seating areas are a wonderful addition to outdoor spaces, providing ambiance and warmth, and creating a structured area for people to gather and chat.

Creating a relaxing outdoor seating area with a fire pit depends on the layout and size of your space and the characteristics of your fire pit. For example, if you are working with a built-in seating area, consider opting for a lighter, mobile fire pit that can be moved away if people get too hot. If you’re working with movable outdoor furniture such as chairs, couches, love seats, or even rustic stumps, you can opt for a larger fire pit because people can move their chairs back easily. A great look you’ll see in the collections below is to arrange a long, rectangular fire pit with a cozy L-shaped sectional. Regardless of your arrangement, remember to keep a safe distance between the seating area and the fire pit and check that any built-in features are fire-resistant!

For an extra idyllic seating area, consider adding outdoor string lights around the perimeter of the space, a matching area rug under the fire pit, and soft pillows and throws to chairs and love seats.
