New! Tropical Deckchairs, UK
New for SS2021 and inspired by the native plants of South America 'Sao Paulo' is a beautiful tropical addition to our deckchair range. Available in two colour ways - cream and green, this elegant, fresh design has been created with the Tandara Hoffmann Studio, based in Brazil.
Tandara's work celebrates the Brazilian soul through its shapes, colours and textures. The three plants found in the design are also found in Parque da Aclimação, a large public park very close to Tandara's studio. Tandara visited the park, collected foliage and flowers which she shared with Liz via Zoom calls and emails. Together they honed down the choices to the final three, discussed and agreed the right size and scale that would really add a wow factor to our lovely wooden deckchairs. Then Tandara worked her magic...
Why opt for a tropical addition to our range of deckchairs?
Denys & Fielding has always been passionate about creating products and gifts that are joyful and offer a little escapism, and never has this felt more important. For those of us lucky enough to have one, our gardens have become our sanctuaries in the last 12 months. And, because it may be some time before many of us board a plane to our favourite hot spots, bringing a little tropical sunshine to our shores just felt like the right addition to our range, at the right time.
Of course, while our focus was on you, our lovely customer and what would work for you, the process of working with Tandara during those cold lockdown months was a tonic. Totally unconnected and a good stride away from us in Kent, let alone Brazil, there is a mural in Sheffield that I happened to see a picture of this week. It reads: "We are all waves in the same sea, leaves of the same tree, flowers of the same garden" - never has that felt more true. In some small way, working together across borders at a time when we can't physically cross them feels all the more important. To stretch ourselves, to learn, to share, to be inspired. The work that has been a joy to create, we hope, is a joy to own.
Key elements in the new deckchair range
Complementing our wider range of deckchairs, the new 'Sao Paulo' print is presented in a cream and dark green background. It is available across our range of deckchairs and garden chairs and is also available as a table runner, because quite honestly, we felt it was too pretty to not be shown off in a table setting. Table runners are available in 100% cotton, in the cream colour way only.
While our new design has been created in Brazil, as always, we have done everything to ensure there as few airmiles involved as possible. Our fabrics are printed here in Kent before we make each deckchair sling and table runner by hand. We will also be adding on our deckchair headrests, just as soon as we can.
