The answer to being the envy of all design aficionados at the beach this year surely comes in the form of this Gerrit Rietveld-inspired beach chair by Mal Furniture.
I know the sun has gone away for a lot of people, but it'll be back soon and when it is back, you could have this Hemingway Design Gift Shop deckchair to fall back on.
Early last week, it would have seemed too early to be talking about deckchairs, but since we’ve been enjoying a bit of sunshine recently (most of the UK has anyway) it doesn’t seem so crazy to mention these Hemingway Design Deckchairs.
With another bank holiday on the horizon, now is surely the perfect time to invest in another deckchair. This Vintage rose panache deckchair available from Furniture Divas offers up old-fashioned looks, alongside eco credentials.
As the name would suggest, the chair is decorated with a beautiful, vintage-style rose. This rose emblem has been printed onto 100% natural cotton canvas, using vegetable inks. Add to that the frame which is made from FSC wood and you've got the perfect place to spend your Bank Holiday weekend.
The chair costs £125.

The range includes mugs, book bags and deckchairs covered with the covers of some of Ian Fleming's most famous books. Though the designs have a period feel, they're actually taken from the 2002 US editions of the books and are designed by Richie Fahey.
There are six different novels to pick from for the mugs and a selection of three titles used on the bags, including the From Russia With Love design shown above. Meanwhile, you can pick from either Casino Royale or Thunderball (pictured over the page) to adorn your deckchair.
The mugs cost £8.95, the book bag costs £15.95 while the chair is available for £74.95.

Sometimes simple designs are the best, and this Beach Hut Blue Striped Deckchair is a good example.
The deckchair hardly deviates from the classic style. It has a wooden frame and a vintage style blue and white striped sling. The only addition to the timeless design is the cushion that is strapped to the top of the deckchair to make it more comfortable.
The Beach Hut Blue Striped Deckchair costs £60 from The Contemporary Home.
