It’s been a long time since I wrote something on furniture design. I was eagerly waiting for a movable to drop that is functional, aesthetic and on top of that, intrigues my attention. My hunt for a well-made furniture piece made me knock on the doors of Amazon where I stumbled upon the Hangout chair by BOTE that has me hooked up (not literally).
Before you start assuming it to be a fitment to enhance your indoor design, I’d like to clarify, that the chair is for outdoor usage, mostly floating and relaxing in a pool. The best part about this floating chair is its design that holds resemblance to the Adirondack chair- a timeless classic outdoor lounge chair with wide armrests. It is a part of BOTE’s hangout suite which features eight modular inflatable pieces, with the likes of Hangout 240, Hangout Couch and Hangout Lounge.
Getting back to the chair, the inflatable furniture is half submerged and half floating. The PVC sling will keep your legs submerged while you can bask the upper half of your body under the Sun. To provide you with maximum comfort, the chair features a padded back that will help you recline backwards. Just like wide arms of the Adirondack chair, the BOTE Hangout chair also has wide arms covered with rigid boards, and include a drink holder.
The right armrest of the chair features BOTE’s signature MAGNEPOD system or should I say magnetic attachment points that are compatible with BOTE’s magnetic drinkware and accessory retention system. This would prevent your tumbler from sloshing all over the place. Although, it would have been much better if the chair had dedicated pouches for waterproof tablets and phones.
