The Pingewood Story

What we do

We design and make outdoor fires underpinned by a close community of Pingewood stockists.

It all starts with a sketch, each piece consisting of around three years of design and development from the ground up. Part art and sculpture. We don’t just plonk our Pingewoods together, it’s a slim balance between form and function. Every single Pingewood is rigorously tried and tested and manufactured within the United Kingdom to guarantee exceptional quality and a low carbon footprint.

Right now, we’re selling Pingewood’s all over the world, creating individual moments of joy everyday and we love that!

Why we do it

Because everybody deserves a proper outdoor fire, that is why. A simple idea, but a noble cause that’s behind everything we do at Pingewood. We’re working our wee socks off and won’t rest until there’s a Pingewood in the garden of every man, woman and garden-owning child everywhere.

How It All Happened

Growing up we had always been fascinated by the flames of a roaring fire. I can vividly remember long summer evenings spent hitching togethor a treehouse under the sun lit leaves in the woods next to our parents house. We would use any bits of wood we could get our hands on and any offcuts would be used for evening camp fires which sometimes got a bit out of control… It was our secret escape that was enjoyed with friends throughout the entirety of the summer holidays even if we did get attacked by plenty of mosquitos every year! This is where we believe our love for a proper outdoor fire ignited.

So how did our love for outdoor fires evolve? Whilst being attacked by smoke that would linger in your hair for days on end and TRYING to enjoy a measly outdoor fire that was on its last legs without even lasting a season, a conversation arouse – why are we accepting this just because it is the industry norm?

We went on the search for a proper outdoor fire but the only products on the market were either too small, poorly built or didn’t stand up to what we envisioned for an outdoor experience.

After a series of sketches, many prototypes and ongoing outdoor testing, we created the first ever Pingewood outdoor fire. Pingewood – the smoke-less, season after season, garden sculpture, proper outdoor fire was born.

Pingewood was founded on the basis of a better way of outdoor living and inspired by innovative and minimalist contemporary design compiled with pure functionality.
