Bring the Fun of the Summer Bonfire Inside with Stov Indoor Fire Pit

We all agree that one of the best parts about summer is gathering around the fire-pit with your friends. It’s a great way to unwind after soaking up the sun all day. And with Memorial Day having come and gone, summer has unofficially kicked off. Bring on those bonfires, right? Except many of us have been stuck with constant rain for the last few weeks and our fire pits are sadly neglected. At last, there is a solution for the rainy days of summer: Stov Indoor Fire Pit.

The folks over at SPRINGTIME, an Amsterdam-based product design company, have developed a unique product that is space heater, coffee table, and social gathering spot all in one. The simple, minimalist design of Stov fits in perfectly with a variety of decor from urban industrial to mid-century modern. Based on the style of free-standing backyard fire pits, Stov sits on three wooden legs with an ash gray, bowl-shaped heating element. This isn’t just a great focal piece for your living room, it’s environmentally friendly and functional too.

Stov uses electricity, no fire (and no smoke) involved. We all know how awful it is to get a face and lungful of smoke when hanging around the bonfire. This means Stov is not just good for your lungs, there’s also none of the dangers inherent in having a live fire going. Bonus: if you are a renter and aren’t allowed to have an open flame, you can still use Stov.

Utilizing the same type of heat that the sun puts out – far-infrared radiation – SPRINGTIME says that Stov has the ability to heat a room by one to two degrees – a big deal and a huge cost saver in the cooler months. Perhaps that’s enough warmth to toast a marshmallow or two, allowing you to indulge in delicious s’mores all year long, but, at the very least, this innovative fire pit means that once your outdoor patio is closed up for winter, you can still use Stov to get your ‘socializing around the campfire’ fix.

Still in concept phase, we have to patiently wait until Stov is available to purchase. Until then, we will just have to endure rainy days inside, sans fire pit. Unless of course, you’d like to build your own fire pit. That, we can help with.

You can now stream the original Shōgun miniseries — here’s how
You can now stream the original Shōgun from the '80s!
Yoko Shimada and Richard Chamberlain in Shogun.

After making a tremendous debut earlier this year, FX and Hulu's Shōgun is easily one of the top TV series of 2024. In addition to being critically acclaimed, Shōgun is such a massive hit that FX is already planning additional seasons to what was originally a standalone adaptation of James Clavell's 1975 novel. It was also one of Hulu's most-streamed series of the year, so it's understandable why FX wants to keep the show going.

This isn't the first time that Shōgun has taken audiences by storm. The original TV adaptation of Shōgun from 1980 was widely considered one of the greatest miniseries ever made. It also had the distinction of being the first and only U.S. production to be filmed entirely in Japan. At the time the new Shōgun premiered earlier this year, the original miniseries wasn't available to stream. But thanks to the new adaptation, fans can now find the 1980 incarnation of Shōgun on one of the major streaming services.

The White Lotus season 3: Everything we know
Get up to date on everything we know about The White Lotus season 3.
The cast of The White Lotus season 1.

When the first season of The White Lotus premiered in 2021, few could have suspected that it would become one of the best shows on HBO and Max. Even series creator Mike White considered The White Lotus to be a six-episode one-off story. But viewer response to this black comedy miniseries was so strong that White and HBO realized that they had a hit on their hands. That's why the series was quickly renewed, and it premiered on HBO and Max in 2022 just a little over a year after the first season.

The White Lotus season 3 was confirmed in November 2022, but unfortunately, the hiatus between seasons is going to be over two years. Each of the first two seasons featured an almost completely different cast of characters, although Jennifer Coolidge and Jon Gries reprised their characters in season 2 to establish some connections with the previous season. There aren't currently a lot of details known about the third season. Regardless, we're sharing everything we know about The White Lotus season 3, which includes most of the cast, the theme and setting, as well as when fans can expect the show to return.
