Conversation pits originally appeared in home décor in the 50s, it was a way to keep living rooms sleek and uncluttered with furniture. It was also an awesome way to spend time with your guests or just family and friends – sitting around and talking, so cozy! Due to modern trends and a frequent lack of space, conversation pits almost disappeared but now they are coming back! As a pit is a special sunken zone, you feel absolutely comfortable and more relaxed sitting in it. Modern conversation pits are indoor and outdoor, they often contain a fireplace or a fire bowl to keep your conversation warmer – this is a must for a person who loves inviting guests to his or her home.
