Last month saw the introduction of Feioi Finds – a curated collection of some lovely wish-list-worthy items for your viewing pleasure. I was falling for some gorgeous mirrors in May and this month I’m turning my attention to the great outdoors.
Come on baby, light my fire
Who doesn’t love a good BBQ? We certainly do in our house, and it’s so lovely to spend time outdoors when the weather is good enough. As darkness descends on a cool summer’s eve, there’s nothing like a blazing fire to keep the party going. Just because the sun has gone to bed, doesn’t mean we have to! We’ve been shopping around for fire bowls and baskets so I thought I’d use the opportunity to share my #FeioiFinds with you!
Designed by the ultra cool designers at House Doctor in Denmark, this stylish fire bowl rests on a three-legged stand. The simple yet elegant piece is ideal for contemporary gardens and complements Scandinavian style homes. Available from Grace & Glory for £265.00.
We’re sticking with the Scandi theme for now with this striking design by Norm Architects for Menu. Formed out of black oxidised steel – which is stronger and more durable than cast iron – the modern fire basket is a unique centrepiece for indoors and outdoors. Fill with logs for fireside storage during the winter months and bring outdoors to enjoy toasty fires on cool summer evenings. Available from Black by Design for £149.95.
You may remember the Solus Decor Hemi 36″fire bowl from my Inside out post. It’s a little on the pricey side but such a stunner, I had to include it again. Available with a natural gas / LPG or bio fuel burner and with both manual and electronic ignition, the huge concrete bowl will pump out some serious heat. As well as looking incredible, it’s totally fuss free without having to faff around with logs and kindling. The top can be protected with an all-weather cover but there’s also the option to purchase a wooden top to convert it into a table when not in use as a fire bowl.
This unusual design by Ak47 Design is the Tripee fire pit from Houseology. “What the hell is a Tripee?” I hear you ask. Is it a cross between a tripod and a teepee? Who knows? In this case it’s a beautiful steel fire bowl suspended within an elegant tripod. Currently reduced from £1,540.00 on Houseology.
So, which one did we go for?
After much deliberation we settled on this gorgeous iron brazier from Cox & Cox:
Its neat size makes it perfect for our garden and I love the shallow curve of the bowl allowing the fire to be visible from all angles. It’s made of cast iron making it reassuringly weighty and giving the appearance a rustic charm.
Fancy your own fire bowl or basket to add to your outdoor space? Which one is the one for you?
Unfortunately the weather is not playing ball at the moment so we haven’t had a chance to use ours yet. I’ll be waiting patiently for a lovely summer evening to relax around a fire. All you need are marshmallows and your best ghost stories. Who’s with me?
Don’t forget to leave me a comment if you have a suggestion for next month’s Feioi Finds post!
