We must admit to be quite taken with the idea of outdoor inflatable furniture when we saw this stylish “Chesterfield” sofa by Blofeld. Our free-associating brain seemed to leap from inflated inner tubes floating down a river at summer tubing parties to this, with a big Why not?
First off, it costs over $1,000. But really, it was Buzzfeed’s The Sad Saga of ’90’s Inflatable Furniture, along with some disappointing Amazon reviews of cheapo Chesterfields, that reminded us of the reality of inflatables: they stick to your skin (imagine that PVC on a hot day), and always threaten to lose ‘gas’ at inopportune times. Lose gas?! Eureka!
What would happen if we filled one of these cheap tangerine orange sofas with…helium?
What would happen if…you floated one down a river….
