The Royal Parks foundation of London is hosting Deckchair Dreams. This initiative collaborates with 25 artists to create designs for canvas deckchairs which feature throughout 8 London parks. This year, in addition to celebrity artists, 126 school children have created their own designs, three of which will appear among the collection.
In addition to brightening up the parks, introducing people to contemporary artists, and involving local school children, you can buy you own limited addition chair. The funds go to continuing the work of the Royal Parks Foundation. Unfortunately the Damien Hirst chair has already sold out (shocking! not.). But if anyone is looking for a great gift, my birthday is coming up soon, and a set of 2 would be lovely ;) Haha.
Click here for the site and all the designs. Below are some of my favs: Michaela Edwards, Ben Fogle, and Damien Hirst.
BTW, I'll be taking a blogging hiatus for a bit while I travel Scandinavia. Hopefully I'll have lots of goodies to share when I return.
