Summer Reading + Giveaway!

With Summer in full swing and fall fast approaching, we're all looking for ways to stretch out that summer-chill vibe. There are plenty ways to soak up the summer sun, but don't overlook just sitting back and taking a moment to unwind. One of our favorite ways to relax is to get cozy with a great summer book. We recently turned to our community on Facebook to see what books they recommended and are excited to hear what books you've read recently.

One way to get cozy with that summer read is with one of the coolest summer Grommets, Sphinx. The Sphinx personal lounger is the perfect accompaniment to your summer book of choice. And we'd love to give you one to chill out on!
