If you have a tiny home, you need furniture that uses minimum space. Furniture that is huge and heavy is not for you. You probably have a foldable bed already which folds seamlessly into your wall. But tables and chairs occupy a lot of area and are not very aesthetically appealing.  There are some designers who have given some thought to this and come up with inflatable furniture. Yep.Chairs and couches and beds which can be blown up only when you require them. They are not only functional but can add charm and character to your home.

Blofield has been developing fabulous inflatable furniture for years. Their contribution to this genre of furniture is undeniable as they have been consistently coming up with functional yet beautiful designs. Their latest venture is the DoNuts design which, you got it, is shaped like a doughnut. The seat is in the shape of a doughnut with a table on top.

You can use this at home and take it outside too. Why not carry your own coffee table around anywhere you please and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and a book in the great outdoors? There’s no chance of damage as the material is UV protected and waterproof. An electric pump inflates it in a few minutes and as it can seat up to six people, it’s ideal for picnics and camping.

The Nappak

The Nappak was developed by four enterprising students based on the theory of “power napping”. Many studies have proved that a “power nap” can increase the productivity of people. It’s designed keeping in mind the lack of space in offices for a bed to nap in. It can be electrically inflated into a half-closed sleeping accommodation in minutes.

After use, it can be vaccumized and stowed away. You don’t need to use a pump either – just have to switch it on and off. It’s an attractive orange color on the outside and a relaxing white on the inside. This funky inflatable bed is ideal for your tiny home too as it can be stored easily. You can use it at home, take it to office and catch a little “power nap”!

The built-in speakers will play music of your choice – just sit back and relax. The speakers are not waterproof so never take it to the pool. It’s the perfect chill-out chair.
