Anybody who's lived through seasons of snow and rain has wished they could be encased in a bubble of heat. G-pod offers itself as your personal snowglobe. The timber-and-glass circle's reflective surface keeps temps in check, and UV tinting prevents sunburn. A waterproof vinyl interior keeps you dry. Use it as a home office, gazebo, entertaining spot, or a meditative escape.

Lounger models fit five people and rotate for a constant 360-degree view. The larger Summerhouse seats 10+ and has an adjustable table that can turn into a bed.
