Paleontologists and anthropologists aren’t quite certain when our hunting/gathering Stone Age ancestors first started using fire in a purposeful, controlled way. No matter when it was that they did, chances are it had a lot more to do with making meat more digestible through cooking as well as providing warmth from the cold and protection from nocturnal predators than it did ambiance.
There’s still something primal about gathering around a fire in the evening, even in modern, urbanized settings during the warmer months. And yes, it does provide a certain romantic ambiance. When it comes to achieving this in a safe, modern and stylish way, look to Home & Hearth Outfitters to provide the latest in outdoor fireplaces and firepits – as well as accessories – from top manufacturers in the industry.
