Cleopatra Chair

Last week I had the chance to try out the Cleopatra Chair as part of a visit to a spa. Made from a single cut of high-density Italian limestone, it was surprisingly comfortable — for a rock.

Even better, the Cleopatra Chair is heated using silicone-based equipment that bleeds warmth throughout the whole body. And believe it or not, limestone is a soft rock that actually has a bit of give to it. The deluxe chaise lounge is ergonomically designed to follow the body's contours while the firm support aligns the spine. Developed in Germany, some versions even come with a hydraulic lift to elevate the chair.

Place a special order to purchase the Cleopatra chair for $17,000. If you can't shell out that sort of money visit The Resort and Spa at Singer Island. They have a few in their spa.
