MILWAUKEE, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Willard & May, an up and coming online retailer of outdoor living products, recently announced an addition to their line of outdoor heating products which could be their best item to date: the Chimenea (also spelled "chiminea"). Just in time for the outdoor entertaining season, the folks at Willard & May have given backyard lovers yet another reason to live outside this summer by offering one of the latest trends in outdoor living.
Once an extremely functional and useful piece of Mexican culture, the Chimenea dates back hundreds of years to when Mexican tribesmen crafted these Chimeneas (or transportable chimneys) out of a composite of soil sediment and stone. These Chimeneas provided the tribesmen an efficient cooking and heating source for both them and their families. Now made of a much more durable clay material, the Chimeneas offered by Willard & May provide many of the same benefits while also adding an attractive focal point to the consumer's patio, deck, or garden and have become one of the most popular trends among gardeners and outdoor enthusiasts. Coming in a wide range of styles and colors, the presence of a Chimenea creates an inviting ambiance not only with its warm crackling flames but also with the delightful wood-burning aroma it produces. Love s'mores? The glowing flames contained inside can also produce the perfect place to roast a marshmallow at the end of a long, summer day.
Not only do these Chimeneas add a beautiful piece of artwork and atmosphere to the landscape, they also are relatively easy to maintain. Thanks to the durability of the clay material used to fashion these pieces, the Chimeneas are suited for just about any climate. They can remain outdoors year round, even in places which receive rather harsh winter weather. Each Chimenea shipped from Willard & May includes concise and easy tips regarding the care and maintenance of the product. A recent purchaser of one of these Chimeneas reports, "I cannot believe how easy and worry-free this product is. It arrived in perfect condition, requiring no assembly whatsoever. We've already used it three times for impromptu get-togethers with the neighbors and I think they're all jealous!"
Most of the Chimeneas on the Willard & May website retail for just over $100.00. With the free shipping policy on all purchases over $50.00, the addition of a Chimenea to the outdoor living space might just be a necessity this summer!
