Have you ever tried a Japanese kotatsu? A table frame covered by a futon (heavy blanket), and underneath is an electric heat. When the weather gets cold, family members snug their feet under the table for warmth, and do non-important things in the same time. Although it is good to stay in good health temperature, this comfortable table sometimes gets you overly comfortable with yourself and forever not wanting to leave the area.

A Japanese web designer Laura and her mother Caroline celebrate their traditional culture by combining it with sweets. Their work features a bunch of felines napping around a kotatsu, heating their legs underneath the table. The edible composition is made of nerikiri, a Japanese sweet. It is completed with beautiful small details that it is almost too pretty to eat.
