For more than a hundred years, deckchairs have provided a place to rest weary feet and have a little day dream in London’s Royal Parks.
In 2005, we looked out of the window and thought how fantastic it would be to turn some of the Parks' deckchairs into works of art for everyone to enjoy. And so Deckchair Dreams was born.
Top artists from the worlds of art, drama, illustration, cartoon, fashion design and literature have donated designs for Deckchair Dreams.
Since the launch of the project in 2006, artists, designers and celebrities such as Tracey Emin, Alexander McQueen, Phillip Treacy, Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake, Ben Fogle and Quentin Blake have donated deckchair designs inspired by London's Royal Parks.
This innovative public art adventure aims to promote nature, art and design to park visitors, and to raise awareness and funding for cultural, heritage, education and conservation projects across London's eight Royal Parks.
The deckchairs will either be a beautiful addition to your home, or a unique gift for outdoor enthusiasts.
