Our Round Patio Fire Pit With Adirondack Chairs

Round fire pit patio with Adirondack chairs

I'm so excited to share our finished fire pit area with you! We made some changes big and small recently and now it's ready for nights around the fire! 

We had a backyard patio installed last year and have been updating it since. I gave you a tour of the patio earlier this summer and then later we installed cafe lights over the entire patio as well. (See that tutorial if you don't have trees to attach your lights to!)

Last year I bought clearanced plastic Adirondack chairs to go around the fire pit:

We started with six and after a few storms were down to four. The plastic was just too lightweight and they would FLY away. 

We were always planning on something more substantial long term. 

SO many of you mentioned your love of POLYWOOD when I talked about our plan to upgrade. I looked into them (and with your recommendations), I was sold. 

The fact that they are an Indiana company and all products are made in the USA sealed the deal!

I was so grateful to work with them to finish up our fire pit area...we could NOT be more thrilled with these chairs!:
POLYWOOD Adirondack chair review

We chose the Vineyard Curveback Adirondack chairs in mahogany and they are perfection. So crazy comfortable and roomy. 

This option also sits up a bit higher so they are much easier to get in and out of. 

That is huge detail for us! 

The reclining angle is ideal -- you can sit back and relax but you don't have to hurl yourself forward to stand up. :) 

They arrived more than half way assembled -- once I got in a groove it only took about 15 minutes each to get them fully together. 

These chairs are SOLID and heavy enough that they don't move in high winds:

The lovely curved back was just the traditional look I wanted. 

Our favorite thing about these is the comfort -- and that they are so solid and don't move around. When we sat in the plastic ones they would skooch around every time we moved. 

We are SO thrilled with how this outdoor space has turned out!:

We had a few evergreens planted this fall, and this is just the start of our plans for trees and plants. 

Having this big backyard to work with is so much fun and intimidating! We're taking it slow so we don't make any expensive mistakes. 

These durable chairs (and all of the items POLYWOOD offers) are made of recycled materials -- they use landfill and ocean-bound plastics to make their products. 

They recycle an average of 400,000 plastic milk jugs every DAY to make this beautiful outdoor furniture!:

They are also made to hold up in any weather -- so no need to put them away for the winter. This is HUGE for us. 

We may purchase covers for them eventually, but they aren't necessary. They won't fade in the hot sun either, which is important for us because this spot gets all of the elements. 

Last week I added another layer of bricks to the fire pit so that it's a bit more substantial -- the little extra height feels like a big difference! 

Plus now it's the perfect height to prop up our feet by the warmth of the fire:

See how we built that fire pit safely and the little detail our contractors added to the patio in this spot. 

Our circular fire pit area is 14 feet across!

One of my favorite details of these chairs is the width of the armrests -- plenty of room for a wine glass or a snack! ;)

We are looking into their cute back cushion options because they look like the perfect lumbar size. They have a variety of outdoor fabrics to pick from. 

The furniture has the look and weight of wood, but without the upkeep. They make for the perfect fire pit chairs!

I did my research about POLYWOOD and their product and was honored to work with them. We are so pleased with this product and I couldn't wait to tell you about them. 

POLYWOOD also offers a great selection of patio furniture like outdoor dining tables, side tables, benches and even porch swings.

Our fire pit area is so cozy and comfortable now -- we have the comfy seating, warm fire and lights for ambience. 

What more could we need?:

These are definitely an investment -- but we after hearing from so many of you and doing my own research online, I found SO many happy customers who all say they are 100 percent worth it. 

We've had ours for a year and a half and completely agree. 

Plus, they have a TWENTY year warranty. This covers splintering, cracking, peeling and more. It's hard to find that kind of warranty on anything these days!

I already have a list of fun projects for our patio for next year, but for now we will be enjoying this beautiful space:

You can find those adorable fall pillow covers here. They were a birthday gift from my sister. :) 

P.S. Make sure you visit the actual POLYWOOD site when shopping -- there are many lookalikes out there that don't offer the same quality or warranty. 

I worked with POLYWOOD in exchange for some free product. If you are looking for outdoor furniture I can't recommend this brand enough.

  1. The chairs are very nice. My daughter has some. The only problem is the squirrels like to chew on them.

  2. The patio looks awesome! Could you tell me the dimensions of the patio itself? Was the firepit built directly on top of the concrete?

  3. What’s the diameter of your cement circle? And what’s the diameter of your fire pit? Thanks!


If you have a specific question I will do my best to answer you back here!

THANKS so much for reading!
