The Chaheati is part chair, part bun warmer.
The collapsible canvas chair has flexible heating elements throughout the seat to keep you warm during a chilly camping trip or soccer game. The low-voltage system is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
The chair heats in less than 20 seconds to one of four temperature settings ranging from 98 to 145 degrees. The battery will last from a little less than two hours on a charge at the highest setting to six hours at the lowest, the company says. An AC car adapter is also available.
The chair can hold up to 280 pounds and is available in either red and black or camouflage and black.
The Chaheati costs $72, including shipping. It can be ordered at www.chaheati.com.
ON THE SHELF
Interior designer Stephen Sills is known for an elegant style that blends past and present. The way he’s applied that style to homes across the country is highlighted in a new coffee table book, Stephen Sills: Decoration (Rizzoli, $65 in hardcover).
The book showcases 16 homes that Sills has designed, including his own. They range from fairly spare to opulent and from modern to traditional, but they share his emphasis on comfort, his love of classical elements, his restrained use of color and his preference for sophisticated finishes.
Photos by Francois Halard take readers inside the Manhattan apartments, country homes, ski retreats and grand mansions that bear Sills’ decorative stamp.
