Good, Better, Best: Elegant Fire Pits

It's already August, but that doesn't mean you have to stop entertaining in the backyard. All you need to transition from hot Summer days to cooling-off nights is a good outdoor fire pit. These have become incredibly popular in recent years, but some of them are a bit too tacky and down-home looking for my taste. Here, I've rounded up three sleek and elegant fire pits to fit any budget.

Good: The Frontgate 40" Copper Fire Pit ($299) keeps things simple and traditional, with a broad shallow bowl for firewood and a wrought-iron stand.

For two even better options,

Better: A bit more modern is the Blomus Stainless Steel Fire Basket ($638), which is about half the size of Frontgate's but twice as sassy.

Best: Finally, this Conmoto Outdoor Fire Pit ($1,000) is a design and outdoor-dining junkie's dream, with a 27-inch bowl perched atop geometric legs.

The last two look like they should be attached to the space shuttle. I like the one I have- my husband's such a pyro we need one with a lid so we don't burn the house down with all the flying ash.

Very pretty. I'd like to have some land where I could do a firepit one day.

I like the first one the best. Sitting outside around a fire in the early fall is great. I think that a fire pit would make a great gift.

None of these really do it for me. I want one that looks like stone. I imagine metal ones would show smoke damage and they're really hard to use in my decorating scheme.

We got one like the "good" model, and what we really like it that it is actaully a propane fire, so there is no smoke. Yes it's not as realistic but it's so much easier, and I don't chop wood so I can just start it myself in seconds.

We plan on getting one, but in TX you really don't need to worry about starting a fire, even at night until about November or December. Otherwise you would sit and sweat.

so, I am thinking about getting one of these, but I'm not sure it's a great idea for sitting around. Do these things kick up a lot of smoke? Are the terra cotta fire chimneys better?

I have seen much cooler ones where they have tiles surrounding them and they are square shaped. Our friends got one and it is nice b/c you can use the tiled area as a table or put your feet on it to warm up your toes!

I like the first one the best. But we inherited one when we bought our house, so no need for another!

I'm not crazy about any of these...but I have to say that out of all of them I like the first "good" one the best.
