Tatami Room North

Check out this table.Its a Japanese style table called a kotatsu, typically in the winter you put the blanket between the frame and table top to help keep your legs / body warm when you are sitting there.This table also has a heater built in to really help keep you warm. Right now the table is too high, even for me, but I can removed those blocks at the bottom of the legs to lower the table a little bit... but, I need an allen wrench. With that heater, you can put most of your body under the table and take a nap too. These tables are popular in Japan because I think most houses are poorly insulated and lack a good heating system (... kind of like Seattle).
