Galanter & Jones is a furniture company dedicated to keeping San Francisco derrieres toasty, in an aesthetically-pleasing way, of course. Aaron Jones, a furniture designer who lives in Glen Park, noticed that SF merchants tend to leave their door ajar—the better to lure shoppers, but with a chilly result thanks to SF fog. His solution is the seating you see above, which houses a sensor and heater so it knows when your tush needs toasting. Flora Grubb has one you can check out in person. The Helios above also comes in white, and stay tuned for more designs and can be used indoors or outdoors.
