Throwback Thursday: Inflatable Furniture

At some point in the 90’s, someone looked out at their pool and thought, “You know what? I’m tired of my couch. I think I’d like to bring that pool raft in and sit on that to watch TV instead.

 

Yes, this is appropriate furniture for an adult.

Something about the 90’s made us crave clear plastic crap. Furniture, backpacks, jellies–as long as it was chock full of BPA and would probably give us cancer before we were thirty, we wanted to inhale that acrid, plastic smell until we died.

My bubble backpack expresses the darkness within my soul.

Inflatable furniture, was intended, I’m sure, to be a “funky” addition to one’s home, but it all came out looking exactly as you’d expect: cheap and sad.

I'm 99% certain that Britney Spears didn't have one of these in her house, thereby negating the "coolin' like Britney!" advertising promises.

But at least it didn’t have to go to waste–it could always be repurposed as pool toys until an extra-long toenail popped it.

Just kidding, I'm sure the quality craftsmanship has stood the test of time.
