Sunday Supplement V

8 May

Ahh, there’s nothing quite as nice as having a sunbathe in your three piece suit is there Granddad?

I found this poster last week in Hastings and thought it sounded like a really fun idea, to design a deckchair to sit happily on Hastings seafront. Plus they make a full size deckchair with your design for you to keep, that would be nice in the garden wouldn’t it? And as you can see from my recent post about Hastings this little town is chock full of visual inspiration so there should be no shortage of interesting entries.

“The aim of the competition is to encourage members of the public to visit the Stade in Hastings Old Town and explore the cultural and environmental heritage of the area and use this as inspiration to design a deckchair for the Stade.”

I’m tempted to enter but if I can’t have my very own designed deck chair how about one of these from hen & hammock instead? And in case you were concerned that the deckchair doesn’t evoke an English Summer strongly enough they even make one called the Oxford Don!

Or perhaps vintage Edwardian is more your style? I love this one with its fringed shade.

You can’t beat one of these Penguin CLassics for your next trip to the beach…

I hope you’re having a great weekend and find a minute to relax in a deckchair and relax.
