Company Summary

Castle & Bay™ is changing the dynamics of lounging. We created a product line that has a dual experience in lounging both outdoors and in home through ergonomics and comfort as there are very few leisure products that directly address ergonomic issues. Our potential consumer base is very large and includes resort and cruise line clientele, pool owners, beach goers, boaters, lakers, hikers, backpackers, campers and those that are avid readers.
