We’ve had a warm spell here in New York that I’m afraid has ended, or at least it felt like it ended last night. And as soon as winter’s chill settles in, there’s exactly one place where I want to settle: In front of a fireplace. If I am at my parents’ homes through the months of November – February (or really, even March around here), that is where you will find me. I can only be pried away with the lure of home-cooked holiday food, or possibly a good Black Friday or after-Christmas sale. So, basically, the Warmpath by Michaël Harboun is the rustic/mod table of my dreams.
Apparently, the conducts of the stove run through the table’s surface, but the Corian material stands up to high temperatures, and cools it down to a comfortable heat. I don’t even really need to know the science or engineering behind it, though. All I need to know is that it’d allow me to both bask in the orange glow of a roaring fire and also be at a table, eating turkey. (Bonus points because I could even shop Cyber Monday while sitting at it, too.) Sold!
