Are you on-board with the pool float phenomenon of recent years? The must-have accessory of summer – and taking over Instagram since 2017 – is back and better than ever thanks to beach-fun connoisseurs Sunnylife!
When the new-season preview arrived in our inbox, it’s safe to say the whole team here at Ideal Home HQ felt giddy. With cries of ‘oohhh, look there’s an Avocado float!’ and ‘Which one should I get?’ there’s suddenly a sense of summer in the air (despite that air currently being gale force).
Without further ado, here’s what’s new this season. Happy summer shopping all…
Here are a few familiar faces. Both the Flamingo and Unicorn floats were best-selling designs of Summer 2018.
New Avocado pool ring
Avo-look! More than a mere breakfast choice, the avocado has gained cult status in recent years. It’s the motif decorating all manner of homewares, from cushions to coffee cups and now it’s a fabulous pool float.
Fear not if you think the stone looks uncomfortable – it’s a removable beach ball! Yes, you get two-in-one for beach fun with this new design.
