The ideal gift for outdoor enthusiasts. Lounge around in style in the garden next summer or hang it on the wall as a unique piece of artwork. All deckchairs have been generously designed by artists, designers, celebrities and children through Deckchair Dreams, a fantastic public art adventure, to celebrate the trees, wildlife and other rare and wonderful things of London’s eight Royal Parks.
Just 250 deckchairs of this design are available for you buy. Made from a solid, sustainable Merpauh wood frame with a quality artist’s woven canvas, you can enjoy snoozing on these deckchairs for years to come.
Buy this limited edition deckchair, designed by actress Miranda Richardson, which would make a quirky addition to any home or garden, featuring the 'clownish and lovable-looking' Blue Footed Booby, found in the Galapagos Islands.
Twice Oscar-nominated and winner of two Golden Globes, Miranda donated a deckchair design to support Deckhair Dreams in 2013. She told us that she feels lucky to have the Royal Parks and especially the many beautiful trees which are vital to our quality of air and life in a big city.
The theme for the design was Nature's Grand Designs, and she told us:
"Blue Footed Boobies have extraordinary characters and are very happy to loll and soak up the vitamin D. They are at one with their surroundings and in this photo the Booby is pretending to be a rock - or the rock is pretending to be a Booby... they seemed made for each other."
"There is a reason for everything in Nature. Even the blue feet on the Blue Footed Booby. What makes these clownish and loveable-looking birds such devastating fishers is the reflection of the light off the water onto their extremities, rendering them practically invisible to their prey as they enter the dive. Not such boobies after all!"
