Anyone who doesn’t understand the appeal of heated outdoor furniture during summertime hasn’t spent a summer in San Francisco.
An ingenious development: a new heated bench expands the offerings from San Francisco-based Galanter & Jones. Beyond the obvious benefits in winter (it works in snow and freezing temperatures), the new Pylos Bench stays cool in the shade, making it comfortable in any climate.
Above: The newest Galanter & Jones design is the cast stone Pylos Bench with a powder coated stainless steel base. It comes with a standard 8-foot cord and a heat setting adjustable up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit; $4,500.

Above: The Helios Love Chair seats two and is shown here in charcoal with brass base; $4,200. All Galanter & Jones designs are available in five seat colors (including white, ivory, charcoal, orange, and blue), and four base finishes (brass, gunmetal, bronze, and silver).
Above: Each Galanter & Jones design is made of 1-inch thick cast stone mounted on a base of powder coated steel. Shown here is the Helios Lounge, which seats four; $7,900.
Above: The Evia Lounge seats three, shown here in arctic white with brass base; $5,900.
Above: Galanter & Jones furniture is powered by an electrical cord that runs out of the back right leg of each piece. Its power draw ranges from 750 to 1,500 watts. The Evia Chair, shown in charcoal with gunmetal base, is $3,400.
