"Sounds of your favorite music accompany the musical splashes as the speakers are kept dry and away from the rivulets of water or spray...The patio is in a party giving, or just comfortable at home mood, with redwood and synthetic fiber combined and designed to hold speakers that weigh 60 lbs. each."
Yep. Couldn't have said it better myself.

This design is a real treat! The speaker tables are built right into the lamp shades. It keeps them off the floor and out of the way, and turns a pair of boring speakers into a focal point. You gotta admit, that is a pretty nifty storage solution. And in that yummy mustard yellow oh-so-70s color too!
