We don’t know if bigger is better, but it’s definitely hotter. The Urban
Bonfire is our award-winning fireplace design in extra-large. At 7’
tall, this unit creates a real presence in your outdoor space, providing
a place for large gatherings and a focal point on your deck or patio..
The Urban Bonfire can be configured to burn propane, ethanol or natural
gas. It works well in both commercial and residential installations.
The Bonfire in propane or natural gas has a modern star burner
mounted to its firebowl to provide a perfectly dispersed flame. Covering
the propane burner with either lava rock or fire glass is a great way
to disperse the flame and add a customized touch (not included). A 10'
length of flex-hose makes it easy to attach to your propane
tank (the propane model uses a standard 20lb propane tank like the one
used for most residential gas grills). It is also possible to order a
longer hose to store your tank further away. The natural gas model comes
with stubbed out pipe that should be connected to your natural gas line
by a licensed contractor in your area. This ethanol model is powered by
an Eco-smart burner that uses
clean-burning ethanol. It puts out a toasty 18,600 BTUs and is safe for
indoor or outdoor use. The burner holds about 2 gallons of fuel and
burns for apx 8 hours without refilling. The Bonfire is manufactured
from 14 gauge rolled steel. They are
hand-rolled into a sleek cone designed to both direct the heat and
provide a beautiful modern centerpiece for your outdoor space. Each one
is then finished in the Modfire studio by one of our steel
artisans. Seams are welded and smoothed, the distinctive openings are
hand-formed, and the finish is applied. Each Bonfire is unique and will
have slight variations in size and
finishing. In general, they measure 32" in diameter at the base, 10" at
the top and stand 83". Average weight is about 120 lbs. This model comes
in Ultra Hi-Temp Charcoal Powder-Coat (designed to
look like Natural Steel) or any of our color finishes: Ultra-lounge
White, Avocado, Azure, Maraschino, or Tangerine. Each one includes
several layers of high-temperature paint plus a thousand degree clear
coat to protect the steel and provide a vibrant finish.
About Modfire: Modfire is the dream of two friends from
Indiana, Brandon Williams and Marty Young. Although they grew up no more
than 20 miles apart, Brandon and Marty met for the first time when they
were living in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago in 2005. They
bonded over their similar histories growing up in small town Indiana and
shared dreams of building a business focused on beautiful design.
