As the holidays grow ever closer, I know many of us may be preparing for the influx of extra bodies in our homes. Visiting family, open houses, and parties galore can tax existing furniture levels and have us busting out the uncomfortable folding chairs to accommodate everyone. While recently browsing with glee and delight at the new Seattle boutique Charley + May, I stumbled across what just may be the perfect solution to those temporary seating needs: The bubble sofa and ottoman. Made from sturdy PVC plastic and available in a broad range of candy-brights, the bubbles blow right up to provide some fun color without breaking the bank. If you’re in Seattle, pick up the sofa and ottoman in person, $72, and $20, respectively. And for those of you not near the Emerald City, Charley + May will be happy to ship, for a $25 charge. — Megan B.
