Celebrating the Fourth of July at Home

July 02, 2019
HIGH POINT, N.C. — Americans across the country are preparing to celebrate summer’s biggest holiday on the Fourth of July, and fire pits are proving to be one of the most popular ways to gather family and friends at home for the occasion.

“When you have a fire pit in your backyard, by the pool, or on your deck or patio, it creates instant ambience,” said Jackie Hirschhaut, vice president of the American Home Furnishings Alliance and executive director of its outdoor division, the International Casual Furnishings Association. “Fire pits are an ideal way to gather friends and family for relaxing and enjoying outdoor spaces at home.”

Because of their popularity, fire pits are now available in all sizes and configurations, from small single units to larger table options with chairs in a variety of heights, from chat to dining and bar. The most popular fire sources are natural gas and propane.

“There is truly a fire pit choice for everyone today,” Hirschhaut said. “Styles cover the board, from totally traditional to ultra-modern and sleek, and prices range from quite affordable to the luxurious high end.”
