Learn how to win this $4900 bench
More than just mid-century cool, this outdoor bench is heated (think an electric blanket in cast stone). Once you settle in, you may never leave your backyard again. An adjustable sensor regulates the temperature and turns the power off and on. Energy efficient? Yes—the bench warms you, not the surrounding air. Pricey? Definitely—but the handcrafted piece of sculpture will let you sit in comfort in your garden year-round.

And we’re giving you the opportunity to win one! Show and tell us how you'd use this "hot seat" in your garden or home. Upload your photo and creative caption now through May 2. Please note that we will not accept photos depicting people. See the contest rules for more details.
