Pops of colour

These sitting balloons are pure joy.

The fun furniture is part of French designer Florence Jaffrain's latest collection of designs, which is sold through her award-winning design label YOUNOW.

The beanbags, called baloons, are given their shape through a flexible foam inner, and are bolstered by thousands of polysterene balls. A wrap of washable stretchy fabric, neatly knotted at top, completes the look.

Her ever-playful range of designs also extends to the beautiful Fullmoon Easy Light – a portable lamp which reflects and magnifies light, creating a real firecracker of luminescent colour.

Both products are available in New Zealand at The Living Gallery.
