One of our favorite things to do on a cool spring, summer, or fall night is to sit outside by a fire with friends and have a glass of wine. The River Rock Fire Bowl ($399-$699) from Restoration Hardware is cast from high-performance concrete. The fire bowl brings ambience and warmth to evening gatherings without the environmental impact of wood. The concrete bowl is surprisingly lightweight and is outfitted with two stainless steel troughs for clean-burning pourable gel fuel (sold separately). You’ll love this fire bowl, especially when you entertain friends.
