Houzz is the new way to design your home.
thicker width of fire pit walls allows people to put their feet up with out having them overhanging into the fire. You could also place a drink on it.
nice sized ledge to hold food/drinks. Interesting approach with plants underneath/at base of fire pit.
I like the stonework here.
I like that the built in seating is actually close enough to the fire pit to 1/ feel the heat better, 2/ put your feet up on the pit like an ottoman. So many times the built in seating is too far a way to be comfortable.
the smaller pieces used in the stone work make this look more modern and sleek.
Like the wood and stone work combo here
