Default Pink inflatable chair/sofa
Hi,

Me and my girlfriend are building a pink themed asesthetic room a bit like this:

https://goo.gl/images/izkwt4

and one thing she’s up for getting is a pink inflatable chair or sofa, like this one:

Does anyone know if these are available to buy? Whether they do something similar, or if anyone has one and would take money for one, and or two inflatable blue chairs in exchange?

Thanks!

Luke

They were available quite easily in the 90's, these days they're very difficult to get hold of, I had one which I sold on eBay last year for 200 - so good luck finding one.

Id probably pay $200 if anyone actually had one. The thing is they do seem to produce them on alibaba, but i have no idea how to purchase from there. Id almost be tempted to buy 10 if I could go about it and sell the remainder to other looners, but id rather just buy one!

Got 2 sweet ass inflatable blue chairs which are cool as hell!

The original ones were made by a company called Bubble Furiture in the 90’s. I’ve never found a twin chair like the one in your picture, but I did managed to buy two single chairs (one red, one green) off EBay a year or two ago. They’re a nice size though, your not sitting down on the floor (like most other chairs) and they’ve quite a deep cushion so you can sit back or throw your legs over the side n lay back without falling off them.

Ive managed to get myself 2 of the clear blue traditional ones over the years and theyre excellent! This one arrived today (ebay listing pic) but Ive yet to try it.

Found afterall that while I probably cant get hold of a full sized clear pink sofa - though id do anything for one, there are some funky clear pink and mint chairs i can get from the US!

Gonna be a bitch to import but toally worth it!

Hit me up if anyone has a regualr clear pink chair or sofa though!

I've got a few of those blue chairs (and a couple of clear ones) - same package - they're more of a turquoise colour and quite squeaky rather than the dark blue harder material of ones made in later years.

Be careful though, they do split quite easily around the inner seam of the "arm".

I must have missed that auction, otherwise I'd have had it

I’d really love one of those 60’s era genuine Quasar inflatable chairs. Sadly they now go for rediculously high prices.... last one I saw near Camden Market the seller wanted 1,400 for a gloss red one.

I rather miss those transparent blue or pink armchairs, I remember when Argos here in the UK used to sell them at less than a tenner. I had a succession of them as comfy seats in my room at Uni, at that price it didn't matter when housemates got drunk and burst them

I think they still had them in the local branches of Argos as recently as about 2010, though the prices had crept up a bit... the last few at Homebase (who are owned by Argos I think) were about 25 each, which is more like what they cost in the 1990's when they were at the height of popularity. I've still got my last chair from Uni, had it some 11 years now, it has a couple of small leaks but otherwise not too bad. Hoping they come back into fashion with the whole kitsch 90's thing.
