As we round the corner into the latter throes of summer, we realize the precious few weeks we have left to enjoy the thrill of the pool and the laziness of later sunsets. So, appropriately enough, we’ve rounded up a selection of pool furniture that goes above and beyond the typical patio chair or pool raft.
The floating sofa, above, from Hammacher Schlemmer, comfortably fits two adults in a nautilus-inspired shell of a floating couch, while the pool float reminiscent of a classic bean bag is built for a single (below).
Rounding out the lot is a piece from Viesso that may not technically float, but whose platform configuration is perfect for placing it just at the edge of a pool and launching oneself into the water once the heat of the sun’s become a bit too much to bear.
Available from Hammacher Schlemmer, Amazon and Viesso, respectively, this trio of summer essentials offers the simplest form of luxury in existence: fun in the sun with an occasional splash to cool things off.
