Best Fireside Furnishing for Your Fire Pit

Sitting around an outdoor fire pit

Party Time

Fire pits and the gatherings hosted around them are undeniably classy, comfortable, and cozy. But, depending on your price range and the types of gatherings you have, one type of seating does not fit all. Try this handy guide to see what might light your fire. 

Adirondack Chairs

Comfort level: 9/10

Adirondack chairs are classic and comfortable. They come in any color you could possibly desire, fit almost every body type, and have a natural recline to them that promotes relaxation. They come in wood and plastic, sometimes with cup holders. Even when they don't, the arms of the chair are always flat enough to support a beverage. These chairs are suited well to small and medium fire pits and small and medium friend groups.

Price range: $40-$200

Home improvement stores like Walmart, Target, and Home Depot have fantastic options for this type of seating.

Wooden Furniture

Comfort level: 8/10

Wood seating is elegant and clean. Simple styles of chairs and tables suit any sort of party with medium and large fires. The fancier sets come with cushions, ottomans, a sense of class, and enough room for small parties and big fires. Wooden furniture is nice to have, but make sure to be careful when selecting it because of how easily it could burn. 

Price range: $100-$2000

Check out Pier 1 Imports, LexMod, and Wayfair for best of this style.

Collapsible Chairs

Comfort level: 7/10

For those with a budget, those who want to rearrange with ease, or those who want portable, multi-purpose seating, collapsible camping chairs are a great option. They come in a wide variety of colors and are available in child, adult, and two-person bench styles. Pair collapsible chairs with smaller, more intimate and familial fire pit arrangements.

Price range: $5-$100

Places like Dick's Sporting Goods, Amazon, and Target have great collapsible chairs, as well as other lovely camping necessities.

Stone Seating

Comfort level: 7/10

If your fire pit is located on a solid floor, built-in stone benches might be ideal. Of course, this may take a bit too much renovation or money for some, but they are truly delightful, rustic, and hard to damage. They're best fitted to large fire pits and medium-sized parties. 

Price range: $500-$4000

Home improvement stores might have the stone seating of your dreams. Try Hayneedle, Wayfair, or a nearby independent stonework business.

Wicker Furniture

Comfort level: 6/10

Wicker is versatile, water resistant, comes in a variety of colors, and is available in several forms of chairs and tables. Wicker tables, be they little or large, are perfect for drinks, books, citronella candles, snacks, and holding up umbrellas with built-in holes. The chairs and couches can be used with or without cushions, though the cushions should be brought inside when it rains. Wicker sets go well with larger fire pits and are great for larger gatherings. 

Price range: $45-$1000

Check out stores like Walmart, Pier 1 Imports, or Home Depot for the best wicker furniture.

Metal Sets

Comfort level: 5/10

Metal patio furniture is something familiar and homely while remaining incredibly versatile. Sets can come with glass tops of tables, built-in umbrella holders, small side tables, comfortable chairs and few color choices. Dark green and black are popular. Metal sets fit nicely around larger parties and larger fires, with little to worry about other than how hot a chair might be after sitting in the sun all day.

Price range: $500-$2000

Check out places like Macy's, Ultimate Patio Online, and Amazon for the best of outdoor metal furniture.
