The wood-burning Urbanfire was our original product. Designed to provide an outdoor design element that matched our 50s Phoenix ranch house and perfectly roasted marshmallows. The design appeal has extended well beyond our mid-century backyard, winning awards such as the 2011 Dwell on Design Best Furniture and Accessory – and gracing decks from San Diego to New York City. Size (approx): 22" base diameter, 9" top diameter, 48" tall, 65 lbs.
The response to this little design has been amazing and has led to an entire collection of products. But the Urbanfire will always be our first love. It still sits on our patio. We have enjoyed its warmth in the evenings and bold design elements during the day. We now share it with you in the hope that it will enhance your life and space as it has ours.
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.
