"Why should smart, modern design only be for those who have an abundance of disposable income?" That was a pivotal question posed by landscape designer, celebrated artist, and the owner of BOXHILL--Elizabeth Przygoda. While attempting to source a quality, modern fire pit for one of her clients with a modest budget, she was dismayed by the lack of options available in this price range. After a fruitless search for a seemingly unattainable solution, she gave up looking and started sketching!
BOXHILL is proud to introduce to you the VESTA Fire Pit, the first high-end and high-quality fire pit for UNDER $400.
“After almost 20 years of designing luxury landscapes for clients all over the Desert Southwest and the Caribbean, I felt that there was a bit of a void when it came to sourcing products that were accessible to all budgets. That was my impetus for creating VESTA and the entire GLOW! Collection – I wanted to make good design and quality products attainable for every client.”
APLD PRODUCT OF THE YEAR FINALIST!
VESTA is the first design in a collection of goddess-inspired fire pits from BOXHILL’s GLOW! Collection. We pay homage to Vesta, the Roman goddess of the hearth, home, and family with this regal, yet simple design. In the early Roman communities, Vesta’s presence in the home was symbolized by a sacred fire, which burned in the hearth, and it was common to see household shrines dedicated to her spirit. Our VESTA’s rounded shape was inspired by the sanctuaries of the goddess Vesta, still found in present-day Italy. Traditionally worshiped in a circular building, her temples were built to imitate the shape of both early Italian round huts, and public hearths. The VESTA Fire Pit has a shallow, generous bowl, which allows you to enjoy the beauty of the flame.
When not in use, the VESTA’s unpretentious, tasteful design will be at home on the balcony of an urban loft, or as the centerpiece to a clean, rustic patio. Bold, modern, and minimalistic, the VESTA combines unadorned, exquisite design with a place for friends and family to gather…it is “Barefoot Luxury” in every way.
Available in two colors—raw, untreated steel, and a natural rusted finish. Because our firepits are hand-rusted, each will have a unique finish that may vary slightly from the product image. This finish will weather with use and with the elements, and it may bleed on surfaces. If desired, a matte clear coat finish may be added to preserve the original appearance of the rusted finish at an additional charge, and with an increase in delivery time, which is required to set the clear coat.
As an additional option, BOXHILL now offers the VESTA base in a high-gloss, white ceramic finish. It adds an exquisite visual touch to this item, and it is available as an upgrade.
Wood-burning VESTAs are available to ship immediately; however, we are able to modify this design for customers who require a gas or propane option. Please contact BOXHILL for a custom quote, if you require a modification.
