Celebrating the Chaise Lounge Sofa

Celebrating a classic design, built in Britain, perfect for the summer.

There’s plenty of reasons to be cheerful at the moment. The sun is shining; summer is truly upon us; BBQ’s are firing up in gardens across the country. It’s a good time to be British. It’s time to celebrate, and what better way to do that than with our very own British creations, our hand built chaise lounge sofa’s.

Ok, Ok. We hear you. The chaise lounge sofa is not an original British creation. In fact, the earliest known versions, of what is essentially a hybrid of chair and daybed, were made in Egypt. These original models were made from palm sticks lashed together with pieces of cord or rawhide – doesn’t sound too comfortable does it?

But today, our lounge chairs are made with slightly more sophisticated techniques. Not to mention the softest fabrics and cushions (we don’t much fancy a splinter in a compromising area!).

Hand made here in the UK, we have a fabulous range for you to choose from.

Striped Heart Day Bed / Chaise Lounge Sofa

A lovely example of a traditional antique style sofa or day bed that is versatile enough to be used in a wide range of rooms. Beautifully upholstered in a striped heart covered fabric.

Just imagine crashing out after a hard day, your head resting against the matching bolster cushion. We’d probably struggle to get back up again!

These lounge sofas feature solid wooden legs with an antique white finish. They sit on brass castors that make the item easy to move into your desired environment. Personally we think the romantic heart pattern design makes this piece ideal for a bedroom. But it could be equally as stunning in a hallway or reception area.

If it’s a summer lounge chair you’re looking for, this is the way to go. You can find Ancient Greek art that depicts Gods and Goddesses lounging on chaise chairs, soaking up the sun while nibbling on fresh fruit picked from Mediterranean gardens. Wouldn’t you love to do the same this summer?

This beautiful and traditional antique style floral day bed is perfect for recreating your very own classic ancient Greek scene. Ideal for a conservatory or hard wood floored orangery. Position it in the sun, open up the doors and let the breeze gently blow through your hair and have someone pick up the finest grapes from Sainsbury’s. It’s almost like the real thing!

If recreating ancient fantasies isn’t your thing. This floral chaise would also look fabulous in a period house or a modern apartment. Plus you’d save it from grape stains.

Relax in Style

Let someone else fire up the BBQ this weekend. Fix yourself a few ice cold gin and tonics, kickback on some quality hand built British furniture, and celebrate our summer – while it’s still with us!
