Lazy Days of Summer

It’s a scorcher in Richmond, Virginia today!  I just returned from some errands in the soupy humidity and want to bask in the air conditioning for the rest of the day.  The thought reminded me of this great “lounger” I saw in this month’s edition of Cookie Magazine.  It is an chic’ed up version of the good ole bean bag chair.  This comfy gem comes in many colors and patterns and would look great in a family room, play room or kids room. 

I also like this “island”, which would be great for kids and adults alike to watch movies, read or even nap:

This cool little pouf chair would also be great in a family room and could be tucked under the edge of a cocktail table when it wasn’t in use.  I can imagine sitting on it while using my laptop in the evening or reading the newspaper at the coffee table on Sunday morning.

Speaking of poufs, I found this playful chair on Etsy and think it would look great sitting at child’s vanity or used as a comfortable ottoman for an overstuffed armchair in a library or sitting room:

This gorgeous personal “lilly pad” would be great for playing cards or enjoying some cocktails and tapas at the cocktail table in the living room:

And I love the idea of sinking into or putting my feet up on this luxe fuzzy pouf after a long day, and watching some of my favorite television, hello new season of Project Runway!

The nice thing about these glammed up seating options is that they do not require much commitment – they are reasonably priced and can be hidden at a moment’s notice – under the cocktail table or a console or behind a couch.

So take a load off and enjoy the cool in-of-doors.  Plus, how fun is it to say “POUF” anyway?  Pouf, pouf, pouf.
