Deck it out – Livingetc’s edit of the best deckchairs around

Deck chairs are in! Check out how to bring a little seaside chic to your garden patio

Looking for some easy-to-store seating for some extra guests at your barbecue? Deckchairs are a fun way to add a little seaside feel to a sunny day and we’ve rounded up our favourite prints and colours to complement any garden scheme. And if you don’t have a garden? Why not pick up a couple for a trip to the seaside!

A monochrome scheme with a pop of colour makes this Birds Deckchair from John Lewis (£55) both fun and sophisticated, with a scheme that blends nicely into natural surroundings.

Think Punch & Judy, candyfloss and carousels. We absolutely love the seaside nostalgia of this Cotton Deckchair (£94.99) from Garden Furniture World. Pack into the car to look the part on the beach for the day or use to add a coastal theme to your next barbecue.

Crafted from a recycled boat sail, we love this deckchair in blue from 727 Sailbags (£191) at Amara. Complete with moveable arm rests for extra comfort, it also includes an authenticity tag detailing the boat it came from, where it sailed and who sailed it, making for a great garden party story.

Smart and classic, this wooden deckchair with a pastel yellow seat from Tesco (£30) is great for a fan of neutrals adding a chic Mediterranean vibe to your patio – perfect to put your feet up with a Negroni.

Botanical prints are all the rage and the classic Palmeral print in Green and White on the Armchair Deckchair from House of Hackney (£195) is one of our faves. Sit among your well-groomed bright flowers of choice for a truly tropical feel.

Add a little zing to your garden with the Maui checked pattered deckchair from Habitat (£50). Modern neons make the classic pattern feel revived and breathe new life into a garden picnic.

Decadent yet playful, we love this Sardine Tins deckchair by Thornback & Peel at Amara (£135). It’s a sophisticated pattern from a distance, with a classic blue and white colour scheme, but has a fun twist when you get up close.
