What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture added this to Use a "Regionalistic Style" to Develop a Cohesive Landscape
The curvilinear lines of the deck and site walls draw from the lines of the bay and sand dunes beyond.
This landscape has it all - earth, air, fire and water!
Lily Gahagan added this to 16 Fire Pits to Fit Into Your Landscape
There are a lot of places to keep warm on this deck, including right smack-dab in the middle of the table. Who needs a grill when you can flambe your food right from your seat?
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to 8 Elements of a Perfect Outdoor Dining Room
6. Provide a heat source for those cool summer evenings. This expansive deck, with a couple of fire pits and seating which goes on forever, just begs to be used all year round. The real star of this space, however, is the fire table, perfect for roasting s'mores or just staying warm on chilly autumn nights. Don't forget to look around — there are some great views from this vantage point.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
A fire can even hold court in the center of the dining table! (All the easier for a dessert of roasted s'mores.)
Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Warm Up Your Patio
With all the cool gadgets these days, you can even create a small firepit directly on your patio table. Just be careful when reaching for the salt!

The fire pit location here is fitting to the theme of the deck. This area is being used as an outdoor dining area, so having warmth during the colder temperatures of fall is necessary. Choose wisely where you'd like to place your fire pits, they should be in a placed where people can gather easily and safely.
