As this unbelievably sunny summer looks like it's going to stretch on for a few more weeks, we've decided that dragging a dining chair outside and a second for a footrest will no longer suffice.
Deckchairs are the epitome of summer. They instantly conjure long, languid days spent on the beach and drowsy afternoons reading in the garden. We round up some of our favourites, many of which can be folded and stacked for easy storage in the wet winter months.
Inspired by the American Adirondack chairs, this teak deck chair and leg rest have a timeless appeal, silvers beautifully and will be brought out year-after-year.
