New Firepits Extend the Outdoor Season

The Del Mar by California Outdoor Concepts

Firepits now come in a wide variety of designs and styles that can accommodate any outdoor setting. From bar height to chat height, stylish firepits are perfect for entertaining during cool autumn nights. Here are two new models that are popular with consumers.

The Del Mar, another timeless firepit from the signature series of California Outdoor Concepts, is truly an elegant creation. The base is streamlined, and curved metal rises to meet the granite, in chat, dining, balcony, or bar heights. The Del Mar provides the ultimate versatility in choices, with over 36 different color combinations and a firepit that changes easily into a cooler for your drinks. Replace any of these with the complementary granite insert, which also has a 2-inch umbrella hole, and you could instantly sit outside, in the shade.

Tropitone Firepit

The Tropitone firepit design is modular, allowing for the combination of one of four tabletop designs with one common base (in multiple finishes). Tropitone firepits are beautiful and functional, and they coordinate with the company’s current product offerings. Most important, safety was designed into each model. The burner system produces a wide range of heat output, peaking at 90,000 BTU. This range of output provides the user with versatility for variations in outdoor temperature and activities.
