Vintage Rocking Deckchairs for Sale x 3

Sometimes we come across one-off individual and historic deckchairs which we are unable to sell on the website because they are unrepeatable and often very rare. We restore them (but not too much because the age is part of the charm) and will offer them here.

We are offering three rocking deckchairs from c. 1930 which are stamped ‘Castle Woodcrafts Helmsley (York)’. They are in excellent condition and very capacious with curving arms and fold easily for storage.

The workmanship and colour of the wood is beautiful. The chair pictured is covered in Shooting Deckchair canvas, but it may be covered in any of our stripes of your choice.

Price is £195.00 each

If interested, please call us to discuss your individual requirements 0845 500 1 005

Stripes for the Garden – Garden Sun Shelters

Edwardian Garden Sun shelters - The Stripes CompanyOur Edwardian Style Garden Sun Shelters are available in 9 different glorious stripes. If you are looking for a truly original present for a wedding or special birthday gift then look no further! Originally used as garden sun shelters or canopies from the early 1900’s until the 1950’s – these faithful sun shelter replicas with folding beechwood frames for easy storage take only seconds to put up, giving protection on three sides and enough room for a table & two chairs.

They look stunning in the garden (see all our sun shelters) and are suitable for fine summery weather, giving protection from the sun and light breezes, but are not suitable for windy or adverse weather conditions as the sun shelter canopy is not waterproof.

The sun shelter includes cotton ties to secure the canopy to the frame and a row of matching jaunty bobble fringing along the front edge.
There is also a matching showerproof drawstring bag for the folded sun shelter when not in use.

Deckchairstripes Sponsors Chester Open Air Theatre

Deckchairs in the parkLast week, the Chester Performs team met up with Deckchairstripes (now The Stripes Company) for fun in the park trying out all our lovely products.

Our company will be providing bunting, deckchairs, cushions and props for this year’s Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.

This season’s open air theatre productions are all about colourful costumes, jousts and japes – The Stripes Company are the perfect fit as we have been trading online at http://www.thestripescompany.com for four years and are local to Chester.

Along with upmarket deckchairs, retro sun shelters, cushions and fabrics – in fact all sorts of festive summer dressing – we are already no slouch at helping out theatres.  The company’s fabrics have been used by the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Our traditional hardwood deckchairs will provide seating for VIP ticket holders, whilst the brightly coloured cushions will be made available for picnic terrace seating. There will also be plenty of bunting and Deckchairstripes’ unique beach tents will prove to be the perfect shelter for the on-site box office.
