Modern Fire Pits

Artists Bring Flair to the Fire Pit

Designer Rick Wittrig's Third Rock Fire Pit ($1,548) is not for the faint-hearted.

With 80-degree weather here in San Francisco lately, it's hard to imagine wanting to sit by a fire. But come nighttime, it's bound to get chilly. So a roaring fire pit is on my wish list for rooftop décor. But since I have discerning tastes, any old fire pit will not do. I'd like something with a little edge, please. Enter Home Infatuation, a slightly under-the-radar website I discovered that has a flair-filled, dare-I-say innovative selection of firepits for the taking. If the flaming globe gives you nightmares, there are a few less sensational, yet equally eye-catching, artist-designed fire pits to be your focal point this Spring.
