There’s something magical about a campfire — the way people gather around it, sharing food, stories and, for my family, music. It provides warmth, comfort, and protection. Perhaps that’s why we all love firepits so much now — they’re a modern interpretation of old traditions, and a reminder of time spent with the people we love.
Fortunately, modern firepits mean you don’t need to go searching through the forest for firewood. Instead, they’re the perfect centerpiece for your deck or patio, providing a powerful focal point for family gatherings, parties, or just an evening shared with the ones closest to you.
When it comes to creating a unique outdoor space, you’ll want to pair your firepit with beautiful furniture to create an eclectic look. Here at POLYWOOD, we make that easy. With a huge range of high-quality, weather resistant, low maintenance furniture in a variety of vibrant colors and subtle earth tones, you’re sure to find the perfect pieces.
Whether you want to share a meal, toast marshmallows, make pudgy pies, or just have a great conversation, you can combine tables, chairs, and other pieces for just the right ambiance and feel.
We’ve got four suggestions for some classic combinations below, but don’t let that limit you. You can mix furniture of different colors, styles, and collections to perfectly match your vision for an evening around the fire — the possibilities are endless!
For those with an avant garde style sense, the eclectic collection is limited only by your imagination. Get creative by bringing together different chairs, colors, accessories, and tables to create a diverse and fascinating mix.
Whether it’s combining an Aruba folding Adirondack Chair with an easy-seating backless bench, or creating a great s’more spot with one of our popular side tables, there’s something here for everyone. For a little more structure and formality, just add a Classic Casual Dining Chair and/or our Classic Adirondack 48″ Bench.
When it comes to colors, we’ve got you covered with our Color-Stay Technology. Make an impact with vibrant blues, reds, and oranges, or go for a more subtle look with browns, grays, and other lovely earth tones. Combine our traditional and contemporary styles with the highest-quality workmanship, weather resistance, and low maintenance, and you’ll create a set that will stay looking and feeling great.
Long Island Adirondack & Dining Chair Mix
Enjoy the subtle smell of woodsmoke and watch the evening sun gleam off the surface of the water as you relax into our Long Island furniture collection. A slight twist on our more traditional styling, the Long Island collection takes those classic designs and tweaks them just a little.
Pair your firepit with some Long Island Adirondack chairs, and pick a color to complement your outdoor space. Conveniently, the arms of the chairs are just perfect for resting a glass of ice cold beer or delicious wine as you watch the sunset.
For those who want to sit up a little more and enjoy the view over the water, we recommend the Long Island Dining Chair, or you can just go the other way, and relax into a Adirondack Rocking Chair! If you need a little more space for plates and bowls of goodies, the 18 inch side table is just right.
Our Long Island furniture comes in a wide variety of beautiful colors — go with just one or mix up the colors to create interesting contrasts.
Palm Coast Adirondacks (& Kids Adirondack)
For those of you with families, the Palm Coast set could be the perfect choice. Featuring classic styling and bright colors, the Palm Coast Adirondack is perfect for those with little legs — and there’s even space for teddy!
For enjoying a quiet evening with your beloved, the ultimate Adirondack Tête-à-Tête set links together two Adirondack chairs with an innovative, suspended table. For a slightly more formal look, the Palm Coast Dining Chair is perfect, especially if you color-match your entire collection.
Naturally, our side tables complete the set, providing a place for toys to rest.
For those with a flair for the dramatic, you may be drawn to the richness of our black HDPE lumber. It’s just the right color for adding a little contrast to your outdoor space, and you can pair it with either vibrant colors or white and gray for a stylish, monochromatic look.
Start off with a couple of Seashell Adirondack chairs and then add in a couple 18″ side tables and coordinating ottomans. We love the look of a firepit in the middle, but you can also pair these chairs with a conversation table (shown above). Guitar players among you may appreciate the upright nature of our Seashell Dining Chairs, and for true relaxation you can add a Seashell Adirondack Rocking Chair.
We hope these looks provide some inspiration for your own outdoor firepit space. Don’t be afraid to get creative, go wild, and create your own unique combination of styles, colors, furniture, and designs for a truly remarkable outdoor gathering spot!
