"Sit To Make A Stand" World Land Trust Deckchairs have gone VIRAL!

Whilst we've been busy with the Summer of 2013, the range of "Sit To Make a Stand" deckchairs (our collaboration with the World Land Trust & Winchester School of Art) has been taking the internet by storm! Below are some of the sites they've been featured on, in addition the the House & Garden and Telegraph features earlier in the year:
Financial Times "How To Spend It" Magazine Concerto Group: The Style List Trend Journal Stylist Magazine (Issue 181) Vogue Magazine

You can see the whole range of designs on our deckchairs right here - and remember that when you buy one, each deckchair sold will enable World Land Trust to purchase and protect half an acre of threatened habitat forever.

Looking relaxed in The Regent's Park....

You may or may not know, but we've been proudly supplying The Royal Parks with deckchairs for many years. So, when you hire a chair in one of these beautiful parks, you can be safe in the knowledge it's a hardwood Southsea Deckchair that won't let you down. Alternatively, if you buy from us for your home or business, you can also be assured that our products meet the standards and longevity required for these sites.

If you see one of our deckchairs out and about (they've either got a Southsea Deckchairs brand or sticker on the bottom back bar) then we'd love to see them too - please tweet them at us @SouthseaDeck, post on our Facebook page or email them to info@deckchairs.co.uk

Sit To Make A Stand - The World Land Trust Deckchair Collection

International conservation charity, World Land Trust has produced a deckchair collection in collaboration with University of Southampton’s Winchester School of Art and Southsea Deckchairs. Each deckchair sold will enable World Land Trust to purchase and protect half an acre of threatened habitat forever. 

The Sit to Make a Stand Collection of five designs, inspired by the Trust’s international conservation work, encourages people to take direct action for the environment. The collaboration will raise funds to save critically threatened tropical forests and the animals that depend upon them through the Trusts, Buy an Acre programme.

At times the rate at which the natural environment is being lost can seem unstoppable. But small gestures can achieve great things, and we don’t all have to be on the front line when it comes to saving the rainforest. The Sit to Make a Stand Collection is designed for the armchair activist who can relax in the sun, comfortable in the knowledge that each deckchair represents half an acre of biodiversity saved for ever.

Each deckchair represents one of five key World Land Trust projects including: Coral Reefs, designed by Sarah Lewry; Elephants, designed by Jessica Walsh; Orang-utans, designed by Shahnaz Binte Nazimuddeen; Big Cats, designed by Hannah Baker and Parrots, designed by Rachel Iball.

John Burton, CEO of World Land Trust, who pioneered the concept of selling rainforest acres to the public in the late 1980s, is delighted with this initiative saying, “What could be better than relaxing in a deckchair knowing that you have saved half an acre of threatened habitat for wildlife?” 

Southsea Deckchairs have expertly produced the five chosen designs using sustainably sourced timber with PEFC accreditation. Deckchairs will go on sale from Summer 2013 at £150, right here at www.deckchairs.co.uk - keep checking back for more information!
