There are so many options to choose from and many of which will add character to your space.

Here are a few fire pit seating ideas that you may like.

Benefits of a Fire Pit

Separate Spaces

Creating separate spaces in your backyard is a growing trend this year and your fire pit area shouldn’t be an exception.

Your setting area can be sophisticated or simple depending on your needs and your budget. It can be a permanent structure or just a few logs added for a party.

If you don’t have a fire pit area yet, you can follow the 15 steps you’ll find at Instructables.com

Add a basket that holds extra blankets and pillows for added comfort and presentation.  

Garden Space Design

Integrate your fire pit to your garden design with bushes and native plants.

Wooden chairs and pillows are perfect for this setting and add comfort to the natural look.

You can change the colors depending on the season so your fire pit will look interesting all year long. 

Include small side tables for guests to place items, such as drinks.

Sit and Swing

A fire pit that has stand-alone seats and a swing is a superb idea. People enjoy the idea of swinging by the fire.

Patio swings are common and adding them to the fire pit area is the perfect relaxing combo

If you’re a DIY kind of person, you can make your own fire pit swing.

If you’re not, you’ll find our selection of patio swings in this article :

Semi-circle Seating

The greatest benefit of your fire pit area is to reconnect to nature

A fire pit placed in an area that allows you to see the view is ideal. Arrange seating in a semi-circle facing the pit. That ensures that all will be able to enjoy the spectacular view from the backyard.

If you don’t have a magnificent view don’t worry. Make sure you have plenty of green space. Trees, plants and bushes are all perfect to relax the mind and calm the nervous system.

Color Craze Seating

Compliment your fire pit with a splash of color.

Bench style or circular seating looks great with tri-color pillows. Colored chairs are also an easy way to add a touch of fun.

Many bench seats for fire pits are DIY projects. That is a great money saving option and decorating it can be simple. The options are endless and you can go as crazy as you want to!

You can choose any color you like or even paint it yourself!

Cozy Couches

Couches and armchairs are no longer meant for just indoors. 

Bring comfort to the fire pit by adding a sofa and comfortable armchairs. The cozier the better. You can use ottomans as extra seats when needed. 

This arrangement is ideal for family gatherings and cozy chats around the fire.

U-Shaped Seating

Surround your fire pit with a u-shaped bench that permits everyone to feel the heat.

That can be a cement or stone design with cushions included for comfort.

There is also the option of buying curved sofas or benches.

It’s a perfect set-up for chats or small gatherings in the backyard.

2, 4 or 6-set pieces!

Gazebo Seating

You can place your fire pit underneath a gazebo or a pergola

That protects the bowl during inclement weather. Guests can enjoy the fire regardless of rain. 

Wicker or wooden chairs are an ideal complement to this setting.

It adds a very stylish touch to your outdoor area.

Make sure to have a fire extinguisher nearby.

Center Stage Seating

The fire pit does not have to be the center of attraction

Arrange a beautiful table with seating for six to eight people and a few chairs nearby. Position them so that the pit is in the background, while the table and chairs serve as the main attraction.

If you invest in a very well-designed fire pit, it can serve as a decoration in its own right.

Backyard Park

That is an elegant and romantic setting that would be perfect for any yard. 

The added touches of natural elements help to complete the look. Use your favorite natural colors. Add a few landscaping rocks, and the look is complete.

The trend is to go back to native vegetation to minimize the environmental cost. You can read this article to find out all the benefits of native plants.

Camp Style Seating

Enjoy an evening of camping in your own backyard. 

That is a great seating idea for homes with a garden lake or pond. Hobo style seats with wood frames are ideal. Use cured logs for drink holders to enhance the look. These seats work great with or without cushions.

Retreat Style Seating

Bring the spa to your own backyard with this design. 

Comfortable couches or loungers that surround the fire pit is the idea. That works great on a patio that has a hot tub to enjoy. 

Add towels to the area to create the appearance of a real spa. If you have outdoor speakers, play relaxing music to complete the atmosphere.
