Fire tables come in a range of shapes, from circles, to rectangles, to octagons. They have surfaces around the fire where glasses and food items can be placed, or where you can safely put your feet up. These are ideal for having people over for dinner or socializing. They're great to put in the middle of a group of outdoor couches.
