How to recover a deckchair canopy from The Stripes Company
Step 1. Preparing Your Fabric
For most deckchair canopies you will need 2m of deckchair fabric cut in half to make 2 x 1m lengths which you will pin and then stitch together.
Step 2. Sewing Deckchair Canopy Together
Iron the seam flat.
Step 3. Measuring Up
You will need approx 3m of bobble fringe.
Note the front and back measurements of canopy frame (back may be narrower)
To find the depth of the overhang subtract your canopy width from the width of the fabric and then divide the remaining measurement by two. Note this down. Do this for front and back.
Step 4. Creating The Corners
Fold the corners and using the previous measurements mark with a pin (remember front and back are different).
Repeat for all four corners.
Stitch and then cut off the surplus fabric from each of the four corners.
Step 5. Adding The Bobble Fringe
Start at a corner seam folding in the edge of the fabric the width of the bobble trim and pin all the way around the canopy before stitching.
Stylish Deck Chairs, Timeless Deckchairs – The Edwardian Deck Chair
Here at the Stripes Company we offer new Old Style Deck Chairs which we cover from ‘canopy’ top to ‘footstool’ toe in any of our wonderful deckchair fabrics. In addition we trim the canopies with pompoms from our range of bobble fringes, if desired.
Timeless Garden Chairs
These timeless stylish deck chairs are in the style of Edwardian deckchairs from days gone by. The beautiful canopies shade you from the sun, while the footstool lets you put your feet up, so you can totally relax. What more could you want?
If sewing is not your thing, we can now make stylish replacement Edwardian deck chair covers, including replacement canopies and fabric for the footstools. Just choose your fabric and send us your old covers as templates.
Part one of our fabric videos features Maria with a practical guide on how to use our deckchair fabrics with a few top tips thrown in.
Hello I’m Maria from The Stripes Company and I would just like to explain a little bit about all the different fabrics that we do.
First of all let’s have a look at our deck chair fabrics. It’s 45 centimetres wide, woven cotton and fits any deck chair. It’s not intended for prolonged outdoor use so it’s perfect for a chair that is kept indoors and brought out when the sun shines.
Let’s have a look at it on a deckchair. Here is one of our standard teak deck chairs and we have covered it in one of our stripes. Traditionally stripes are always bright colours to allow for fading. The top rail is longer than the bottom rail to allow for the deck chair to be folded up. We supply complete deck chairs covered in any of our fabrics of your choice or, to fit one our canvases yourself we have made a great little video explaining this, just see the link in the description below.
Here is one of our teak directors chairs using the pull-out dowelling method of fixing the seat. As you will notice on the seat and the back the Stripes are horizontal instead of vertical. This is so that the warp threads are supported on either side of the seat. The stripes show the direction of the warp and if you sit on it by putting on the wrong way it will rip. We sell these with covers specially made for you in any of our stripes. Or we offer a made to measure service for your own chair as they are all different sizes and you can make sure that it will fit your chair properly.
Thank you for watching our video, it is the first of many, I hope you enjoy them all and please keep watching.
We don’t just hire deck chairs, we have wooden deck chairs for sale too!
We now have a new range of wooden deck chairs to suit every taste and budget.
Yes, yes, we know what you’re thinking. Something like: Hang on a minute! What do they mean wooden deck chairs? They are all made of wood aren’t they? Well, yes, they are but there’s wood and there’s the wood were using for our extra-special deckchairs. Perhaps we should have put: super duper, brilliantly stripy, extra-special wooden deck chairs for sale to make it clearer. Sorry!
So what’s the wood in these wooden deck chairs for sale ?
We are glad you asked. Up till now our wooden deck chairs for sale have been made from English hardwood, beech to be precise, which is a lovely pale wood, sturdy and top quality timber – we love them. However, as you know, here at the Stripes Company, we like to offer you something special and a bit different and with these new wooden deck chairs for sale, we think we have found just the very thing. These deck chairs are made from Teak.
Wow, teak wooden deck chairs for sale! Now I‘m intrigued…
We thought you would be. There just something indefinable about things made from teak. They
ooze superiority and class. With its distinctive darker tone and sturdy feel, everyone will see
that the teak used in these deck chairs is quite simply a cut above and only the most discerning
will know them for the marvellous creations they are. What’s more, when combined with any one
of our fantastic stripy deckchair fabrics you will have a statement piece that literally screams
quality. You might consider having them in your lounge they are that special. Do you see what we meant by wooden deck chairs for sale now?
The quality is obvious, why not add a canopy and footstool
You’re not going to find these wooden deck chairs for sale in any old seaside resort. The quality is too good to be soiled by discarded fish and chips. There should be no wiping of sticky candyfloss fingers on these fantastic chairs. With the addition of a bespoke canopy and/or footstool covered to order in any of our deck chair fabrics, they should be reserved for a private residence and only the most regal of posteriors. Drinking tea with lemon by the raised beds, daintily biting on a crustless cucumber sandwich whilst enjoying the croquet on the lawn. This, we’re sure you will agree, is the right context for these teak edwardian style wooden deck chairs for sale. And, whilst we want to you to enjoy harking back nostalgically to simpler times, we’ve added our characteristic stripy design edge to offer the perfect union of classic teak deck chairs with a modern, colourful twist.
Stripy Teak Deckchairs – a stylish investment
We think these wooden deck chairs for sale are a great investment. They will definitely add something special to your time relaxing outdoors. We’ve designed them to last and will look great for years to come. We think they will make a great gift for that special someone or why not buy one for yourself? As a person of impeccable taste, you deserve it!
There’s been a vogue over the last few years for people to buy those ugly, foldy chairs you can get at garages and motorway service stations for occasions rather than using deckchair hire.
Those that have purchased one find they’re flimsy, awkward things that fall apart soon after you plonk down on them or, if they do survive, will soon have you flailing around like a fool as you vainly try to collapse them down and coax them back into the inadequate bag they supply with them.
Deckchair Hire – for people who know
For those in the know the classic, seaside deckchair was the original fold‐away chair and it still reigns supreme. Perfect in design, comfortable, decorative and easy to store. They are the original flat pack seating and are still the best.
Thousands of chair hire vendors in resorts nationwide can’t be wrong. But why limit their availability just to our coastal fun spots when the vintage deck chair has many more marvellous stripy uses? That’s why here at The Stripes Company we’re pleased to offer our deckchair hire service.
Deckchair Hire ? – sit down, we’ll tell you more
If you’re having a special event such as a garden tea party, an open air wedding or an intimate summer concert then your guests’ seating will be important. That, and creating the special ambiance and attention to detail that separates a good event from a fantastic one. That’s why our hire service will be just the ticket. Deckchair hire offers you the flexibility of getting just the right number of seats and will avoid the higgledy‐piggledy look that a forest of ‘garage’ chairs will bring. You can hire as few as 8 chairs all the way through to 300 and the great thing is the more you hire the better the price. Naturally our deckchairs are all in our trademark stripes fabrics that will perfectly match the colour palate of your occasion. At the end when you’ve accepted your plaudits and your guests have left the chairs will stack easily and neatly until we come along and pick them up.
Deckchair Hire (but donkeys optional)
When you decide deckchair hire is the perfect solution for your event then we’re here to help.
You can hire any number of our classic, stripy deckchairs, delivered directly to your venue ensuring you’ll get the nostalgic seaside look you want that will certainly enhance your gathering.
