BBC North and Deckchairstripes

We were privileged to be invited to a small get-together at Media City and yesterday evening gathered there to receive a memento for the BBC project which we were involved with from the start by ID:SR as a supplier of fabrics for soft furnishings within the complex.

It was fantastic to see the building at the completed stage (the security was like Fort Knox!) and finally meet the genius designers and architects who had worked with all the staff within the BBC to come up with a solution to working in the media in the 21st Century.

There are very few offices as such  –  areas are available for meetings with stunning ‘pods’ to sit in and if standing on the top floor, the view down is dizzying!

We were presented with a beautiful little booklet entitled ‘A Place to Provoke Smiles’ with text and illustrations on the ethos and construction of the project which involved many British, particularly local suppliers and manufacturers.

An evening to remember!

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.
