THE PEOPLE BEHIND MR BLUE SKY

A few years ago Anne Gilis was on a sailing trip in the Caribbean and she noticed that every boat, big or small, sailing or motor yacht, was dragging along an ugly floating mattress in loud colors.

Back home this kept bothering her and she came to realize something else; People invest in building and rebuilding beautiful houses where the emphasis is more and more placed on outdoor living. Terraces are covered and heated to dine until late at night and gardens are decorated with the most beautiful outdoor furniture.
So sad that when you want to relax in your swimming pool, the only option is to run to a toy store for a pool float in plastic, which above all, you still have to inflate yourself … .

Compelled to reinvent herself, she ran into an old friend after a few years, Gaëtan Bourguignon. Although he owns a company in upholstery fabric, he as well was clearly into a new challenge and strongly believed in Anne’s story.

Together with a shared passion for design and a clear view ahead, this was the beginning of Mr Blue Sky.

Mr Blue Sky launched his first floating luxury lounger in September 2015 and named her ‘Jackie’, a lovely solution to the challenge of creating an elegant, beautiful and perfectly conceptualized floating lounger.
