Fire Tables


You can skip the centerpiece on this modern cocktail table. The Epsilon, a signature piece of British design firm Fuego, features a billowing flame from a stone table top. When I first saw the table, I mistakenly thought it was for outdoor. But designer Joseph Bernard wanted to harness the drama of a fire pit for a modern living room setting. The lattice base is available in dark walnut, medium oak or light ash. An all stone table is available for outdoor use.

The table top is handmade from reconstituted limestone and flex of dark granite. The top can be finished smooth or slightly textured -- which the company says enhances the granite's presence. The fire feeds off of an alcohol-based gel  and oxygen -- so the flame burns odorlessly and smokelessly. While no suppliers are established in the U.S. at this time, Fuego does ship internationally. Retail prices range from £900 to £1100 (about $1800-2200) depending on size and base.
