There are a number of options that will work for you. If you google, "fire pit kettle" or "fire pit bowl", lots of options will present themselves.

We had a recent customer install a set of our Artistic Metal Logs in a Sugar Kettle -- turned out really nice. See attached picture :-)

Its a custom fire pit feature. We used a planter bowl from Royola Pacific Arts and Crafts.

These are custom cast in place concrete benches. A notch is formed within the top of the bench so that cushions can be inserted.

These are cast in place concrete benches. They are formed with a notch out at the top, so fabric cushions can be inserted.

How do those cushions hold up? I lived in CA for a long time and it doesn't rain much but in rainy areas of the country would those not work?

Since no one from Thuilot has answered yet, I'll give you something similar to take a look at. Check out the Hemi 36 from solus: http://www.solusdecor.com/fire-pits/firebowl-hemi-36/

Its a custom fire pit feature. We used a planter bowl from Royola Pacific Arts and Crafts and ran gas and a drain line underneath the bowl.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natural GasWith their ease of operation, fire pits fed by natural gas have been a popular option for several years. This one has been placed to draw people to the edge of the garden to enjoy the property’s stunning views.Because natural gas is fed to the fire pit by a gas line, your pit will need to be stationary (although many fire pit manufacturers also offer their designs in propane, resulting in a more portable unit).
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Creating a There, There in the Garden
This fire bowl beyond the swimming pool draws one out to enjoy the crisp air in the evening garden. I can attest to the effectiveness of even the simplest of fires in the landscape. A boulder fire ring at the far end of my property has become a favorite place in my garden for family and friends to spend many an evening.
6. Invest in outdoor heating Even when the temperature plummets, we can’t resist socialising and dining al fresco. The right heating depends on a number of factors – the size of the space, environmental impact, budget and style. While a wood fire pit has a romantic feel, it’s worth looking at the new option – bio-fuel, a clean-burning liquid fuel made from agricultural byproducts. It means you don’t need to store wood and there’s no clean-up afterwards.
