The Paloform Bol fire bowl (from $2,200) is designer Andrew Barker‘s pick: “Fire brings people together, creating ambiance and warmth, inviting storytelling and maybe even inspiring people to put down their electronics. Paloform’s Bol fire bowl in Corten steel has a beautiful patina of rust that complements a West Coast palette of slate, cedar, basalt, blackened woods and lush native plantings.” paloform.com
