These compact fireplaces, by Terrain, Paloform and more, are hot options for stretching out summer and keeping nights warm even as the season turns into autumn.
1 Toast by AK47
This oxidized steel fire pit, designed by Ivano Losa, keeps dry wood at hand with built-in log storage. Available in 2.5- or 1.5-metre-square versions, with or without a grill surface, the burning chamber can be closed off with a lid when not in use.
2 Prism by Terrain
The home and garden brand’s geometric chiminea is handcrafted from heavy-gauge raw steel. It takes on a unique patina over time and with exposure to the elements.
3 Smokestack by Frederik Roijé
Industrial chimneys provided the inspiration for this two-metre-tall, modern-rustic cylindrical stove. Once in use, the white Corten steel form develops a warm, rusted finish.
4 Fire Vase by Martin Azúa
The Spanish designer collaborated with ceramicist Marc Vidal on this tabletop piece that makes dining al fresco a little cozier as summer fades. Hand-turned from a special type of clay that withstands high temperatures and thermal shock, each piece is numbered and signed.
5 Fire Pit table tops by Paloform
The fireplace brand has released a new series of heavy gauge aluminum covers for its Bento, Miso and Soba models. In white, graphite or black powder coat, the lightweight covers instantly transform the fire pits into coffee-height tables once the fire is out.
