THE DESIGNER
DECK CHAIR

Indigo prints are in style this season, so if you’re heading for the garden or the beach, invest in this key furniture piece, says Elle Decoration’s homes editor Jackie Daly

I love an ikat print – one look and I’m instantly whisked away to the sun-drenched climes of Indonesia and central Asia. The design – created by weaving tie-dyed threads into fabrics and once used to dress Persia’s most princely pashas – is as ancient as it is modern. The ikat-inspired sling on this adjustable sycamore chair redefines one of last year’s hottest interior trends for outdoor living. Deck chairs are my summer garden staple – perfect to pull out when the sun shines and easily folded away when the changeable British weather turns grey. This one is water-repellent so you can leave it outside for the season, and the on-trend indigo colourway will brighten up a plain patio. All you need is sunscreen and shades.
