For those at sea over where to lounge, behold: the floating cabana.
Seriously. What could be more fabulous or more in TheLUXURIAN's wheelhouse? The Parrluxe Sea Cabana, natch.
We love the mere idea of this so much--this is, after all, about luxury to love--that we're re-gifting this little gem of an article to you from our friends at the WSJ, written by Sara Ruffin Costello:
"Some problems are easily solved with money. Take for example the challenge of finding a chic spot to lounge near, but not on, your yacht. Cue the applause for ParrLuxe's sea cabana. In about 15 minutes, your major-domo can inflate the roughly 13-by-17-foot party raft for you and up to 20 sunbathing, swan-diving friends. Complete with wraparound seating and a carbon-fiber canopy frame, the craft is a civilized way to splash around the Med. There's even a natural-swimming-pool option (a hole in the floor, covered by a net, lets seawater inside).
The idea was conceived by Stuart Parr, a New York-based designer and movie producer ("Get Rich or Die Tryin' " and "8 Mile"), while he was sailing on a very large boat in Italy. "Sadly, guests had to walk up four levels to sunbathe and then down four levels to swim," Mr. Parr said. "This went on endlessly. I decided to resolve the problem of lounging on the water conveniently and stylishly."
Demand is widespread. ParrLuxe sea cabana's have been spotted floating in front of tony waterfront addresses from Shelter Island, N.Y., to the Greek island of Ithaca."
