Modern Fire for Outdoor Spaces
Forget the primeval campfire, and say hello to a modern experience of sitting around an open fire with family and friends. Paloform’s collection of fire pit designs offer sculptural shapes in simple vessels for contemporary settings. Here are seven ways to incorporate one in your backyard.
Add a fire pit pool side for a warm glow during a late night swim or cocktail party.
The reflection of flames along the water will add to the ambiance in your backyard. Paloform’s Miso is made of handcast concrete, topped with river rock or lava rock for a natural accent near the pool.

Let a fire be the center of attention in a cozy seating area.
Gather ‘round and keep the conversation close, warm and intimate. The Bento comes with a natural gas or propane burner so guests won’t fear a barrage of smoke when in close quarters. Its substantial feel and thick side walls create a convenient foot rest to keep toes warm on a chilly evening. Offered in handcast concrete or corten steel, the fire pit’s square footprint allows it to be easily incorporated into a variety of landscapes.
Create a stunning focal point.
In modern design, the rectilinear composition of the Robata offers a line of flame to draw interest and create a defining focal point. Whether perched upon a masonry wall as a partition or positioned for warmth at poolside, the narrow shape makes this a great problem solver with drop dead beautiful results.
Use as a spatial divider for large outdoor rooms and serve dual purpose as an outdoor coffee table.
The Robata functions equally well as a spatial divider or an outdoor coffee table when combined with the stainless steel cover. It’s also offered in corten weathering steel for a more earthen look.
Use as an accent for a lush garden.
Often used with more traditional styles, the Soba is a taller, narrower concrete fire bowl that can easily be added to cozy entertaining spaces, or accented in a garden.
Create a destination in the garden.
Part focal point and part destination, a fire pit set apart from the main entertaining area will draw guests out into the yard with a nocturnal ambiance that only a fire pit can provide. The deeper Soba bowl is in keeping with traditional Japanese design or modern derivatives within a larger context.
Get the look of organic minimalism.
Focusing on a neutral palette, flowing lines and curved shapes, organic minimalism is a trend in interiors, fashion, and the outdoors.
Paloform’s Bol is a large, shallow Corten steel fire pit and is a modern expression of organic minimalism with its patina finish and fine edge details. A perfect piece for a rustic look in vogue.
Corten steel is a no-maintenance, natural rust surface which forms when exposed to the elements, lasting a lifetime, and creating a warm, earthy glow when lit.
