Sure, our gardens are pleasant now, but in a couple months, they will be too chilly to enjoy. Think how nice it would be to cozy up on a nice, warm sofa. Now you can, with Galanter & Jones heated outdoor furniture.
Frankly, this California-made capsule collection--which features a groovy angular bench ($5,900), a curvy couch ($7,900) and a sleek chair ($3,400)--has us totally reconsidering ever coming indoors again. The design is ingenious: Three-quarter-inch cast stone is set into a metal frame, with hidden heat cables threaded throughout. The furniture comes in 20 bench and base combinations, from a jazzy orange-and-brass pairing to a more subdued white-and-silver look.
Using them is a no-brainer: just plug in, adjust the heat (up to 120 degrees) and relax. The bench uses surprisingly little energy, so you don?t have to stress about upping your energy bill. The pieces are more costly than traditional outdoor furniture, but their sculptural shapes and quality craftsmanship make them well worth it.
See them in person locally at Potted in Atwater Village so you can try before you buy.
