It’s finally here, no doubt about it the sun is shining and what everyone needs now is an elegant 1920’s deck chair to lie back in and ponder the madness from behind a G and T. This pair from the Torck company of Belgium are some of the best I’ve ever seen. Produced by a company more famous for high end baby prams you can see the care and quality that makes vintage pieces stand out from their contemporary alternatives.
I love the little details like the springs in the canvas seat and the brass studs on the hinges. The canvas is a great shade of orange, nicely weathered but still strong and serviceable. I picked them up on the last trip, apparently they came from a boathouse near Oostende, veterans of many a happy summer on the Belgian Rivera!
£195 the pair
