After the traditional campfire, chimeneas lay claim to the original outdoor fire “appliance” by providing an elevated, portable outdoor hearth, with an opening that lets heat out. Choose the material that suites the style of your backyard––brass, iron, aluminum, brick, clay, and more. While they provide warmth and ambiance, they are not recommended for use on wood decks or other set ups where there is not enough protection from flammable materials. Chimeneas range from inexpensive to high-end. With origins in Spain and Mexico, they are frequently decorated with hand-crafted designs that reflect their uniqueness within the hearth world. These mesmerizing pieces burn wood or charcoal and are sure to impress guests while serving both as art and hearth.
