The Garden Igloo in action. Garden Igloo

Whether you want to eat outside in the winter, or get some shade in the summer, Garden Igloo has got you covered. Literally.

The all-weather dome can act as a Jacuzzi cover, greenhouse, play space, garden shed, or a gazebo.

The stylish pop-up style igloo features a transparent, cold-resistant cover that is made from recyclable PVC plastic tubing. It’s also super easy to assemble.

For sale by a Germany-based design company, the Garden Igloo ships worldwide for €899, or around $1,028.
