It’s 103 Outside and I Want to Light a Fire.

Sitting at home today taking some well deserved time off, I thought I’d take in the great outdoors. Unfortunately the 103 degree reading on the thermometer has driven me back into the air-conditioned comfort of my house. This got me day dreaming about fall weather, and the ability to sit outside on a cool night and take in the fresh air. This got me to thinking about fire pits, or outdoor fireplaces. Nothing says fall like sitting by a warm fire at night enjoying a glass of red wine.

I started searching for a modern fire pit to go with the house, but almost everything I found came up traditional, rustic, or arts and crafts style. There is nothing wrong with that, I’m just looking for something a bit different. After some digging I came across Home Infatuation, a site that specializes in outdoor furniture. And look what I found… a fire pit table designed by John Xochihua.

The table comes in two styles. A coffee table, and a standard table. Both feature heavy gauge steel bases, and tops which are covered with a silicone finish which is resistant to water and heat. The coffee table has a three foot burner strip in the center of its six foot length, and the standard table houses an eighteen inch double ring burner. Both are propane fueled, and the fire area is covered with black lava rock.

The prices are $2988.00 for the standard table and $3988.00 for the coffee table.
