One of the idea to catch our eyes lately has been the resurgence of swings. They are everywhere, and the fire pit area is no exception to the rule.

They come in a variety of shape, design, and colors and you can let your imagination run wild with this!

If you’re a DIY kind of person, you can find many swing plans on Pinterest.

If you don’t have the time or the skills to build one yourself, you’ll find some simple models on Amazon starting at about $60.

If your budget is a bit higher, you’ll find plenty more sophisticated models at Wayfair. They have a spring sale on at the moment, so it’s a good time to look around.

The one on the left comes with a frame and will cost more than $300.


You can use any chairs you like around your fire pit, but Adirondack chairs are still the favorite this year.

Our favorite is this model, and it’s selling at a very sweet price during the spring sale.

You can choose a dark brown color or a natural color. Meaning you can paint it the color of your choice. Because it’s folding, it’s also easy to store in winter, which is always a nice plus.

You can also find a good selection of cosier chairs on Amazon:

Curved furniture

Another trend we’ve seen and loved is curved furniture. That is absolutely genius around a fire pit.

You’ll need a higher budget for this, but it’s a great option to make your fire pit area feel intimate and cozy.

For a bigger space, this is our favorite, but unfortunately, the price is pretty stiff. There was a massive sale on at the time of writing though.

It can be configured as needed.

It comes with a free patio cover.

For a smaller place and a much lower price, we found this good alternative at Wayfair. It looks stylish and can be assembled in a semi-circle which is very clever.


The great thing about sectionals is that they will never go out of fashion. You can rearrange them easily whenever the need arises, and they are super versatile.

You can add some colored cushions to fit any mood you’re trying to create.

You can just change the seating cushions if you want to create a new outdoor look without changing the whole set.

Obviously, it’s a bit of an investment to start with, but then they will last many years if you take proper care of them. Wayfair has easy monthly payments available to make your decision easier.

This 6-piece sectional from Wayfair is made of wicker, and you have the choice between brown or gray. It’s a good option for the price and looks awesome.

Another great wicker sectional, but 7-piece this time.

You can choose between 10 different colors for the cushions so it can fit any outdoor space.

There's a whopping 63% off during the spring sale so don't wait!


A love seat is another very attractive option for fire pit seating. They are both comfortable and cute. They also fit into smaller places.

The most popular model of all is the Corfu from Keter probably because it’s the best value for money. It’s available at both Amazon and Wayfair, so you’ll have to check both shops to find the cheaper deal!

We also love the fact that it comes in two different colors, brown or charcoal.

Colored Items
