dreaming of lounging outside

Well that’s it, I’m officially old. I am actually dreaming about garden chairs. The dream of relaxing outside and reclining under my fig tree in a nice comfy chair is so appealing,  yeah yeah old, whatever. I do have a chair though or to be more accurate, a  slightly rotten pub bench……now can you understand my dream of lounging outside?!

I’ve selected a few chairs that I’ve been swooning over, however as I’m so indecisive, the summer will probably be over before I choose which one to go for.

Last but not least this new ARKIPELAGO KVTT3 lounge chair designed by Kari Virtanen, available from  I’m SO SO happy that this is available as a lounger now!

I’m just going to close my eyes while sitting on my pub bench and pretend that I’m lounging outside on one of these beauts…… sigh….

    I’m still drooling over the HAY collab, that green would just look incredible against a black fence!

    I’d love to have the space (and the weather) for a lounger. Lots of shopping inspiration.

    I love them all but the Hang chair looks super comfy and gets my final vote. xx

    The HAY chair is gorgeous! In fact, I love everything they design! All we need is sun now 😉

    I really like the HAY ones too, torn between them and the MENU ones x

    My favourite is most definitely the Finn chaise by Norm Architects, such a simplistic design and a soft tone to the wood. We just need some sun now! x
