Bisque radiators are fun, functional, and totally hot

We've covered the Heat Wave electric radiator from Droog, but I came across Bisque Radiators from England today, and I think I'm in love with radiant steel heating again.

Most American households have converted to forced air heating partly because vintage radiator designs did not age well. Though perfectly serviceable, the majority of older radiators just donít match our modern design sensibilities, and they were promptly ripped out when it was time to redecorate. A few of Bisque's electric or steam pieces installed in a new home could help to remind homeowners of the wonderful feeling of sitting next to a toasty radiator.

Whimsical radiators like the Power Plant and Hot Spring add fun functional touches to serious rooms. Freestanding pieces like the Zanzibar and X-Stream double as decorative metalwork for living areas. A row of X-Streams could provide a great functional screen for separating a sleeping area in a large loft, and just imagine lying in a cozy bed next to a wall that radiates heat. I'd probably sleep all winter.

All of Bisque's bathroom radiators include towel warmers, and most models are available in painted finishes to match existing decor. Sadly, high design heat doesn't come cheap; their radiators run the gamut from $500 to $3,000.
