Now that winter has officially arrived (even in Florida!), it’s an opportune time to look back on Stone Forest’s fire tables and fire vessels, which are suitable for use in both outdoor entertainment and landscape design. With any one of these gorgeous pieces, you’ll keep warm – and keep the party going all winter long.
In many parts of the western United States, and other temperate climates all over the world, the party doesn’t have to move inside just because the winter months have arrived. All it takes is some cozy outerwear, comfortable seating and a winter warming fire table or fire vessel to keep on entertaining outdoors. It doesn’t hurt that such devices are primal to our nature – the Greek philosopher Plutarch said, “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.”
Vesta Fire Table
What I love about the Vesta Fire Table is that it evokes a primitive attraction to fire, the rough hewn granite edges give it a rugged, outdoorsy appeal and yet, the overall design with the angular, stainless fire insert is clean, modern and unexpected. The table top is blue grey granite and the base is stainless steel.
Helios Fire Vessel
A fire vessel is a must in every outdoor design concept. You can create a stunning focal point like this fire and water vignette or use it for something more mundane like roasting marshmallows – it’s ok you can admit it here, we know there’s a Smores lover buried underneath that stylish exterior. The bowl is hand carved from solid blue-gray granite and can accommodate a gas line.
Saturn Fire Vessel
And again with that great contrast between sleek shape and rough hewn accents, this time on the Saturn Vessel Sink, I just love how Stone Forest play with textures and shapes. No wonder I’ve been a fan of the company for years.
Suspended Fire Vessel
And finally the most rugged piece in the collection, the Suspended Fire Vessel is made from an iron basin that is indeed suspended between two halves of a natural bolder. I’m now dreaming of the cabin in the Rocky’s with this little number in the backyard. Even snow couldn’t keep me from having and outdoor get together with mulled wine, spiced cocoa and …..sigh….back to the challenge of surviving winter in Florida. Oh and if you’re in love with this one it’s designed to work with wood fires only.
