There’s nothing quite like huddling around a glorious fire under a clear night sky with your friends and family in midsummer, which is why we’ve put together our top outdoor fire pit ideas.

Read on to discover the best way to bring the people you love most together and transform your back garden for the better.

Entertain your guests with a rattan corner sofa with fire pit

If you’re planning on entertaining a large group of people, you may wish to consider investing in a larger fire pit area with a corner sofa.

Installing a corner sofa is a fantastic way to maximise your available space. Our Oyster Bay Square Royal Corner Bench Set with Fire Pit in Light Grey Rattan will do just that, and it is the perfect accompaniment to a hot, lazy afternoon.

This sumptuous rattan collection accommodates eight people, and it is ideal for late nights in the garden and offers the ultimate in versatile relaxing. Oyster Bay comes in a beautiful grey coloured weave which will only enhance the beauty of your outdoor area.

Alternatively, consider our Bahama Left Hand Corner Dining Set with Firepit in White Wash Rattan.

This dining set accommodates 10 people, and it is crafted using powder coated aluminium framework. This offers protection from rust and corrosion, even in damp conditions – which means that you can leave it out throughout the year and use it in the summer without having to move your furniture in place.

Bring the family together with a stylish rectangular fire pit table

The best fire pit table shape for your space depends on the dimensions of your area and how you plan to use that space. For a small gathering, a square unit is perfect for creating an intimate lounge atmosphere, whereas a rectangular unit often works better for larger groups and can bring a dash of elegance to your back garden.

This is where our Jamaica 3 Seat Dining Set with Firepit Table, Armchairs and Bench Footstool in Grey Aluminium comes in! A beautifully designed rectangular fire pit, the Jamaica 3-Seater provides the whole family with the experience of a traditional family dinner table under the stars.

Incorporate lanterns and candles into your patio fire pit area

If you fancy bringing a festival vibe to your outdoor area, consider installing lanterns and candles around the general seating area.

Our Orange & Sanguine candles are the perfect accessory in this regard, as are our Pomelo & Ginger candles. Alternatively, opt for one of our Glow Outdoor Lanterns if you really fancy embracing the festival vibe.

We hope that this has provided you with more than enough inspiration to get started! Bring your garden area to new heights this summer with our garden fire pit ideas.
