Reporting from Paris: Blofield inflatables breathe some life into indoor-outdoor furniture


The Blofield inflatable Chesterfield sofas from Dutch designer Jeroen van de Kant caught our eye at the fall 2009 Maison & Objet fair, and the company is back in Paris this week with additional variations on the blow-up theme.

Maison_Blofield2 With a cheeky nod to classic design and an ironically formal look, the Blofield pieces set a new standard for air-filled outdoor furniture. Now, in addition to its  armchairs, love seats and three-person couches, Blofield introduced a four-seater in new colors including black, red and orange. Blofield also introduced the Baby Blo, a kid-sized armchair.

These armchairs and sofas are comfortable, easy to clean and so handsome that it’s tempting to imagine them in a chic loft instead of poolside.

“You could use them inside,” said a spokeswoman at the salon, “But they’re really made for the outdoors.”

Made from heavy-duty PVC, the Blofield combines the classic elegance of a Chesterfield sofa with the technology that has revolutionized the air mattress. Each Blofield piece comes with an electric air pump and wheeled travel bag (plus a repair kit to patch up any holes).
