A kotatsu is a wooden table housing a built-in heat source and covered by a heavy blanket. The Japanese have been using them since the 14th century, and Iranians have been using a similar furnishing for nearly as long. In a world desperate for new innovations, what’s better than a good thing and another good thing? A mash up of those good things of course!
You see, just as any utilitarian invention must evolve in order to stay relevant, so has the kotatsu. Some beautiful souls across the world have built what can only be described as couch/bed/kotatsu hybrids. What this means is that you can snooze, eat, and generally lounge in ultimate comfort and warmth forever. No need to ever get up! Ever! Catheter sold separately.
