'90s Inflatable Furniture is Back, and We're Totally Here for It
This boomerang trend is back in all its '90s glory.
I'm giving away my age here, but I had a lot of inflatable furniture as a '90s tween. The glistening, purple plastic of the blow-up sofa, armchair and ottoman looked so out of place in my otherwise traditional bedroom. But really, the only reason I wanted inflatable furniture was because Britney Spears thought it was cool. That's all I needed to know. In fact, I had the Britney Spears-branded inflatable lounge chair on my Christmas list. According to the box, it "inflates in minutes" and is "the best seat in the house to listen to your favorite Britney tunes." Need I say more?
Here we are, two decades later, and inflatable furniture is popping back up in retail stores like Urban Outfitters and Kohl's. With the same inspired design from the '90s, today's inflatable furniture still comes in funky, neon hues and explosions of glitter. They're the ideal, easy-to-move piece of furniture for dorm rooms, kids' rooms and music festivals alike. Dying to add a piece of '90s nostalgia to your 21st-century space? Turn on some Ace of Base and shop these modern inflatable buys.
