We now have vintage deckchairs to buy and hire (only in the UK from our UK website). We purchased all the Deck Chairs from Blackpool where they no longer hired them out to holidaymakers.
Our vintage deckchair canvas fabrics really enhance the look of these vintage deckchairs, capturing the era of days gone by.
Our Vintage deckchair canvas fabrics are also perfect for recovering directors chairs too
See our Step by Step Guide on How to Recover a Directors chair
Please bear in mind that all our deckchair fabrics including these vintage ones are 100% cotton with no synthetics, which means that they are not strictly outdoor fabric. Modern dyes are used today which lack the toxic colour fasteners used in the past so they will fade quicker if left out in strong sunlight and adverse weather conditions.
In the heyday of the deckchair (1900 - 1950's) with no synthetic fabrics available, covers were replaced annually. We opted for cotton deckchair covers because they are more comfortable and easier to replace.
In staying true to the original concept, we think that to protect your deckchairs in inclement weather is a small price to pay for a beautiful product
Some of our Vintage Stripes have been used on deckchairs in the Downton Abbey series 4 Finale and Christmas Special - Kickball.
