At the top of every summer must have list? Sunnylife pool floats. Created in 2003 and now a staple at festivals and poolsides, the Sydney, Australia based brand has succeeded in its mission to bring the Aussie summer spirit to other corners of the world. Their inflatables alone have been making celeb appearances for years; looking at Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods approved pink flamingo at New Year’s family vacation circa 2016 and Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s luxe patterned seats fit for swimwear modeling.

There’s a float for everyone, and every creature, from fruity summer motifs to birds of paradise. We spoke with the Sunnylife team to find out what inspires their summer whimsy and how they keep life, and Instagram, sunny.
