Heated outdoor furniture for snug and stylish winter lounging
Well, it’s about time for a little toasty outdoor seating. (After all, the first heated chairlift seat debuted in 2010 at Park City’s Canyons ski resort, and that even managed to dangle in midair.)

The one-inch cast stone surface is sculptural-mod, with fully integrated color (customizable) and a powder-coated steel base that comes in a variety of finishes, from silver to gunmetal to dark bronze. All pieces are plug-in ready, with an integrated variable control system to keep your seat from scorching. It will even remember your setting for the next time you arrive. Designed and handmade in California, these cozy nests look like the perfect mountain perch.
