JUMPING IN BEFORE IT COOLS DOWN WITH POOL BUOY
The weather may be starting to turn, but our hearts are still back in summertime. In our minds, we're eternally laying on the sand somewhere, book in hand and sunnies on - so you best believe that we'll be pre-planning for the next warm weather period by purchasing our very own Pool Buoy pool.
These babies are a far cry from your average blow up pool - and may even be cooler than your smug neighbour's in-ground one. This super smart venture was conjured during a long and arduous Melbourne lockdown in 2020, where, with what felt like very little else to do, founder Rae Maxwell identified a gap in the market.
With seven 'cheeky' designs, we think Pool Buoy will definitely be changing the way we summer.
"I am a huge fan of mid-century design, so when thinking of the colour palettes and designs for Pool Buoy’s new range, I found my mind automatically drawn to Slim Aarons - think 1960’s poolside, socialising and celebrating in style. This cheeky, colourful and bright era really drove the brand name, copy and designs," says Maxwell.
'But isn't that plastic bad for the environment?' we hear you ask. Well yes, but these guys aren't! Designed for buoyant personalities, Pool Buoy is not only super cute, but environmentally responsible. Each design is made from non-toxic, heavyweight vinyl that is BPA, phthalate and lead-free - so it's no-no and nasties free. Plus, they're recyclable!
Take a dip from the comfort of your own home - autumn, winter, summer - we won't judge. Grab yourself a Pool Buoy design here.
