“Modern Family” actress Sofía Vergara and her entire extended family went on a tropical vacation to celebrate her 49th birthday on July 10. Vergara posted several pics during their stay, including one in which she posed in front of an inflatable beach chair. And … did anyone else just have a brain blast?

Lugging your beach chair to and from the beach is such a drag, but what if you could simply inflate the chair when you get to the beach and then deflate it before you head out? If you already have a hand pump for ocean floaties anyway, an inflatable beach chair like Vergara’s palm leaf one is kind of a no-brainer.

This simple white blow-up chair from Urban Outfitters comes with a color-changing battery-powered LED light inside. As soon as the sun begins to set, you can flick on the party lights and continue your beach day well into the night.

This gold inflatable chair from Bed Bath & Beyond has holographic glitter inside it. It can be used either indoors or out, is easy to inflate, and lightweight, making transport to and from the beach a breeze.

And if you love the palm leaf print of Vergara’s chair, take a look at the inflatable chaise lounge from Sun Squad, available at Target. This chair even comes with a cupholder placed right within reach — you won’t want to get up once you take a load off.

Why didn’t we think of inflatable beach chairs sooner?
