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.
