Sun loungers are a hugely popular buy, despite the Great British Weather.
We might sometimes moan about the cold, the rain, the wind, the storms and the unpredictability of it all. But when spring arrives, then summer unfolds, it’s hard to beat. It’s hot but not too hot. It’s sunny but not so sunny we’re driven, sweating, indoors or into the shade. Because we’ve moaned our way through an entire autumn and winter, the arrival of good weather feels like a treat from heaven, a bonus.
Would we love it so much if the weather here was always hot and sunny? Maybe not. The phenomenon of ‘Bouncing Poms’, who move to Australia then move back to the UK a few years later, flattened by the heat Down Under, hints that Brits actually rather like the dramatic changes the weather delivers to our funny little island. Oddly, we miss the uncertainty. And we really miss the exhilaration of spring after a long, dark winter. It’s like we come alive again every year, and it feels amazing.
At the same time, the UK’s weather is steadily getting hotter thanks to climate change. And that means you need some serious lounging equipment for your garden, to take full advantage of it. So let’s explore our beautiful, classy collection of sun loungers. There’s something for everyone. We even have a choice of stunning day bed designs for you, created for the ultimate alfresco lounging experience. Let’s take a look at those first.
The Norfolk Leisure Dara Day Bed in Grey Rope and Greywash
The classic Norfolk Leisure Dara Day Bed in grey rope and greywash is big, bold, and very beautiful. The on-trend grey colour scheme is lush. The styling is gorgeous, an exotic-looking design that could easily be found on the beach or veranda in a posh resort on a tropical holiday island.
Can you imagine it in a rich green jungle-like setting, surrounded by plants in your garden, or loud and proud out on the patio? Maybe in the shade of a tree? There’s room for two to lounge in supreme comfort, thanks to the thick, soft cushion pads and the pretty rope-inspired back and sides. You can check out all the fine details here.
We have some more day bed and related products on sale, too. The Norfolk Leisure Titchwell Garden Day Bed comes in cool white and soft beige, and also offers a pale grey version. The shade part folds down to create a simple day bed with chunky good looks. Like everything from our friends at Norfolk Leisure it’s all about great design, great materials, and great chilling.
The Keter Daytona Sunbed in Grey is one of the most plain, simple and stylish sun loungers, a great low cost choice, just as well made and classy as the rest. The sheer elegance of the simple design means it looks amazing in every style of garden. And the grey colour scheme is the ultimate in ‘now’.
The Norfolk Leisure Oxborough Outdoor Pull Out Lounge Sofa in Grey gives you even more choice, a versatile item that works just as well as an outdoor sofa. Again, it comes with really nice styling. It can live utside all year round as long as you stash the cushions somewhere dry and, ideally, cover up the frame. Isn’t the two-tone grey weave cool? Add your own bright scatter cushions for extra funkiness.
The Norfolk Leisure Wroxham Lounger and Coffee Table Set
Here’s the lovely Norfolk Leisure Wroxham Lounger and Coffee Table Set, which comes with a very attractive traditional edge. You can easily imagine it turning up in a 1920s black and white movie set in India with its colonial-style good looks.
The wide weave wicker body and table look fantastic, giving you that traditional wicker look with a contemporary edge. The colours are very cool, beautiful shades of warm grey that complement planting perfectly. It’s comfortable, well made and built to last. Can you see yourself chilling with this great item of quality garden furniture?
Sun loungers heaven – The Norfolk Leisure Titchwell Relax Coffee Set
The magnificent Norfolk Leisure Titchwell Relax Coffee Set provides everything you need for quality lounging for two, along with somewhere nifty for your drinks and snacks. Take relaxation to the next level thanks to two gorgeously comfy chairs, a couple of cool footstools, plus a sweet coffee table perfect for stashing your drinks, snacks, book and phone.
The brand’s signature pale and darker grey colour scheme keeps things on-the-button trendy as well as looking wonderful against the plants and flowers.
