Product of the Month: Ledge Lounger
Everyone has a signature, but an autograph must be earned. An autograph represents time, accomplishments, experience and expertise. It is something to be proud of. For Ledge Lounger, it all began with the Signature Chaise. After more than a decade of making a mark on the pool industry with over a quarter of a million pieces of in-pool furniture sold, the company says it is evolving the client’s in-pool experience again.
Presenting the Autograph Collection and its capstone piece: the Autograph Chaise. “Our clients and trade partners are at the heart of what we do. You are what push us to constantly improve because we know you won’t settle for anything, and so neither do we. The Autograph Chaise is the evolution of the Signature Chaise, propelled forward by you and your feedback,” says Ledge Lounger.
The Autograph Chaise is packed with features, including increased lumbar support so users can be more upright and engaged with their surroundings, a water depth range of up to 12 inches, and a seamlessly attached optional headrest pillow, available in premium colors. What hasn’t changed is, just like the company’s Signature products, the Autograph collection is crafted of UV16 rated resin, and made in the U.S.

The cooldown is to the sauna bath as the ladle to the bucket. With the Ice Lounge, KLAFS can now provide invigorating coolness in all spa areas all year round, without outdoor access.
The central highlight and source of the coveted coldness is the Stalagmite ice fountain, from which — as the name implies — rather than falling from above, the ice chunks gradually grow upwards. This small, frosty spectacle is not only soothing, but also invites you to grab one or two ice blooms and use them to assist your cooldown, the company says.
