Tell us. Who deserves a free Air-2-Chair?
We are looking for product testers.
Currently SofaSale is running a Facebook promotion and is recruiting cool product testers, so if you and your friend are keen to get a FREE Air-2-Chair, better let us know by Facebook. SofaSale will start selection a testing crew, so this new cool gadget can be fully tested over the festive season.
Share our Facebook post to your best friends, with who you would like to test our new Air-2-Chair.
Inflatable chairs are great for bringing to the outdoors, since they give you a functional outdoor furniture that can pack into a pouch on your backpack. Problem is, they also require pumps that take up room in your pack, leaving them just a little less capable in the portability department. The Air2Chair changes that.
Unlike other inflatable chairs, this one doesn’t require any kind of pump to inflate. Instead, it uses one of those modern inflatable setups that requires you to just move it through the air to sufficiently inflate. According to the outfit, all you need to do is hold the mouth wide open, take a couple of steps until it fully inflates and seal it (a process that should take no more than 10 seconds). From there, you can use it to sit back, relax, and give your legs a rest.
When fully inflated, the Air2Chair looks like a bean bag lounger – you know, the kind you probably had in your dorm back when you were going to school. Except, the darn thing is inflatable and designed for the outdoors, so you can sit on it whether you’re lounging in the backyard, partying at a festival, or soaking up the sun at the beach. With a deep and wide seat, along with an equally wide and tall back rest, the chair should support your whole body, with a feel that the outfit claims resembles “floating on a cloud.” Yeah, we’re not sure how you’re supposed to float on a cloud, either, but we’ll take it. Because of that wide profile, the chair supports a variety of lounging positions, so you can plop down in different ways without feeling awkward.
Construction is triple-coated nylon for the chair with double-stitched seams, so this should handle sand, grass, and paved grounds without any trouble, although they offer an optional protective mat that allows you to use it on rocks and similar terrain without taking damage. Since nylon probably won’t be comfortable as a seat, it comes with a suede cover that zips along the edges of the resting sections to serve as a seating surface. The suede, by the way, is water-repellent, so you can use it by the poolside, enjoy drinks while sitting on it, and even use it in the rain without leaving it soaking. It’s washable, too, so you can just throw it in with the laundry when it gets a little too dirty for comfort.
Do note, the Air2Chair isn’t designed to stay inflated for an entire day. Instead, it slowly loses air as time passes, likely requiring you to reopen the closure and refill it after four hours. Considering the whole process takes no more than 10 seconds, it doesn’t sound like all that much of a hassle.

A Hong Kong flat where the kitchen takes centre stage
Two avid cooks have defied Hong Kong interior norms by designing their Mid-Levels apartment around a wonderful gas stove
"We love to cook," says Morgaine. "We do it four or five times a week and it's always a massive spread."
The couple grew up in Connecticut, in the United States, but didn't meet until both were living in Hong Kong (Morgaine works in fashion and Paul in transport). Eight years ago, they had been dating for only a month when Paul decided to buy a flat in a 1960s building. He was living in a high-rise housing estate and was looking for something a little more intimate.
"I couldn't stomach the idea of a big, flashy lobby, and I wanted to live in a real neighbourhood," he says.
With the help of Morgaine, he found what he was looking for in a low-key corner of Mid-Levels.
The 1,137 sq ft apartment needed work, but when the dust finally settled on their first renovation, the McGees weren't entirely satisfied with the result. The kitchen had been squeezed into a narrow slither at the rear of the apartment, which made for some cosy evenings with guests. Two years ago, however, the couple decided to redo the flat and enlisted the help of a friend, architect Cameron Hestler.
This time it was a success.
The pendant light (HK$3,500) came from Indigo Living. The sterling-silver fish on the wall was made by California-based artist Ruth Wright. The Trust floor tiles, by Atlas Concorde, were sourced through Pacific Gallery (159 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2827 9918) years ago.

Want to update a piece of furniture, without spending a lot? Try reupholstering, with these secrets to success.
Start by using a seam-ripper to remove the old fabric to make the job easier on your hands.
If the cushioning has seen better days, add an extra layer of polyfibre fill and cover with quilt bedding for a cushy uniform seat. When adding fabric rather than stapling one entire side, insert a staple on one side, pull the fabric tight and than move to the opposite side and insert a staple directly opposite the previous one. When it come to corners folding edges neatly and uniformly is key to a polished look. To create a clean vertical pleat, cut a nudge in the fabric, fold over the raw edge of the fabric of the bottom and tuck the side around the leg, now staple it to place. Now fold over the raw edge of the other side, and lay over the piece you just stapled. Cut a small slit on the edge of the fabric, use a butter knife to tuck in excess fabric, this will create a nice vertical pleat in the corners.
A cardboard strip will help create a clean edges on the banking piece. When piecing together fabric, make sure your pattern is aligned, check it as you are stapling.
A metal tag strip will also help to create a clean finished edge, place the tag strip on the very edge of your fabric, with the tags going through the front of the fabric, fold the fabric over, and pound the strip into place.
Follow these easy tips and tricks and your old furniture will look like new!
