Ultraviolet Jellyfish 0 The Independent - Best Deckchairs


Brits have a long tradition of lounging in deckchairs when the sun shines. Back in the day, they’d be robust, ridged wooden chairs with stiff, striped canvas slings.

Now, you can find a vast range of colours and designs on the market. We’ve rounded up a collection of the best designs – including a stripe or two. From Tesco’s classic candy striped chair to Wawa’s innovative rocker-deckchair hybrid, there’s something for all lounging fans. Just remember not to leave them out in the rain.


If you want a good-value chair to see you through summer, Homebase and Tesco’s offerings are ideal. Bring them in when you’re not using them and they will last you. For a chair that makes a statement in your garden, go for Smart Deco’s designs. If you’re looking for something that looks just as good inside as out, then Wawa’s rocker is a winner.

About artbyjaxx

Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands. Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory. Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
