33 Cool Ideas for the Hottest Outdoor Fireplace Designs

In this final post in our series on Outdoor Living spaces, we move from all about water to all about fire. After all, even though it’s difficult to imagine today, cooler temps will be here before we know it. An outdoor fireplace allows us the opportunity to enjoy our backyards far into the fall season.

The grander, more substantial cousins to the fire pits we discussed a few weeks ago, a true outdoor fireplace can be the grand dame of an outdoor living space. Definitely a focal point, these beautiful structures can be very traditional, very contemporary, somewhere in between or something truly special and unique.

For those of us (yes, me) who love being outside, who can stare at a fire for hours on end and who love to cozy up in a blanket in the crisp night air, an outdoor fireplace is a must have for the backyard.

And, as I mentioned last week, as a designer, the “look” of something is as equally important to me as its function. So feast your eyes on 30 timeless traditional, sleek contemporary, kinda in between designs and “wow, I would have never thought of that” outdoor fireplaces that light my fire. Maybe one of them will light yours.



Wether they are crafted in classic red brick, a whitewashed or painted version, limestone or the rustic elegance of natural stone, traditional fireplaces conjure up all the fall feels.
