Who doesn’t love a day at the beach, a good meal outside followed by a night cap by an outdoor fire? And we don’t mean a huge bonfire at the beach- we mean an intimate, relaxing setting under the night sky illuminated by fire.
For years and years, people have been drawn to the element of fire long before our ancient ancestors used it for warmth, protection and cooking food. Basically, the use of fire was critical for man’s development. In today’s world, with all our modern electric lighting and cooking appliances, good ole fire is associated with comfort rather than a crucial need.
The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa researched fire and the impact it has on humans. The answers? Fire lowers blood pressure. The information obtained was that when humans are sitting fireside, the senses become encompassed in the experience. The potential to reduce anxiety comes from the calming, yet fixed attention to the flame.
At Our Boat House, we could not agree more, therefore we have a curated collection of fire elements available for your outdoor living spaces.
