Quentin Blake Deckchair
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.

He has illustrated nearly 300 books with writers such as Russell Hoban, Joan Aiken, Michael Rosen, John Yeoman and, most famously of all, Roald Dahl. He has also illustrated classic books for adults, and created his own characters such as Mister Magnolia and Mrs Armitage. For many years he taught at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. He is a CBE and, in France, a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.
