The Kotatsu sofa is a traditional wooden table design complete with a coal stove and blanket used in Japan to provide warmth, but now retailers such as Belle Maison are adding a modern spin to furniture piece for modern home owners. The new design allows users to connect the warming table to several sofas with adjustable cushions.

Unlike most standard sofas, this Kotatsu offers a heat source in the middle that traps warm air underneath a blanket to keep sitters extra warm. Thanks to the Belle Maison's addition of couches along the perimeter of the warming table so that sitters can lay down or sit up right while enjoying the extra warmth. The sofa design is low to the floor making it a large bed-like space for friends and family to hang out on.
