Get ready for the polar vortex’s little brother. That’s what some meteorologists believe will occur this week when the flow of air around the polar vortex will shove cold air southward from the Arctic into the Lower 48, plunging us back into those sub-freezing temperatures. After our last bout with way below normal temperatures and a broken pipe in my own home, I can say with all my heart that I do hope they are wrong.
Should those nasty temperatures come back, no one will be spending much time outside but on the off chance that you do decide, on a whim, to use your patio, you will want to make sure you have Outdoorlicious-ly heated outdoor furniture such as the Helios Lounge from Galanter & Jones.
Designed by Aaron Jones, the Helios Lounge has a smooth, ergonomic shape and is constructed of cast stone that sits on a powder-coated steel base.
The unit comes with an electrical cord providing heat when needed. Since stone retains heat naturally, your bench will stay nice and warm all day with minimal energy output.
Over twenty colors are available, or you can contact Galanter & Jones directly to order a custom color that exactly suits your outdoor living color scheme.
At $4,900, the Helios Lounge may seem a bit pricey but how many people do you know who have heated outdoor furniture? For those who are always on the lookout for the next big thing or that certain something that separates them from everyone else, this could be just the thing. In the winter, you will certainly be popular with your outdoor living-loving friends.
Worth taking note of is the fact that the Helios Lounge is made by local trades people in California. American made merchandise is always high on my list of characteristics that peak my interest and make me take a second look. Whether this one is for you (or me) or not, it is great to see artisans pursuing their craft and manufacturing in America. That just may be the impetus needed for someone reading this to order one.
