When we set out to create the world’s most beautiful fire pits we didn’t quite anticipate how much fire adds to the conversation, ambiance and of course romance. Sitting around a fire is primal – it is part of the human soul and has taken place for thousands of years. Solus has very simply put a new contemporary twist on it. Fire invites conversation and it brings people together. One of our favourite stories took place two hours outside of Boston Massachusetts just two short years ago.
It turns out that the groom, Keith, had seen the above picture of our Hemi 48″ firepit on the Briarcliff Motel’s Facebook page and made a special request for them to set up this area in preparation for his marriage proposal. He got down on one knee and voilà, popped the question at the most romantic spot possible. In case you’re wondering, Jamie absolutely said yes. That’s the happy couple right below – you can see Jamie showing off her beautiful diamond solitaire.
It gives us much pleasure to learn that the Hemi firebowl has become a significant part of the attraction for people choosing the Briarcliff Motel. It creates a lovely atmosphere for patrons to hang out and converse while watching a beautiful sunset and staying toasty warm. As Valentines day descends upon us it is time to find that romantic spot and if it happens to include a fire – send us a photo.
