It’s summertime, which can only mean one thing – time to get the sun lounger out, make a jug of Pimm’s and tan yourself away. Whilst we do have a changeable climate here in the UK, when the sun does show his face, he shows it well. So when these glorious days come out, make yourself prepared for a place to lap up all those rays: say hello to the humble sun lounger.
FOR THOSE WHO BURN EASILY
Those more sensitive to the sun know the importance of keeping yourself protected. But fear not – there’s a way to enjoy the sun this season without constantly worrying about burns. How? The answer is to get a sun lounger with a built-in canopy/shade, just like this one from Outsunny.
OUR FAVOURITE THING: The awning also creates great shade if you want to read or check your phone without having to worry about glare from the sun.
WATCH OUT: The shade only covers the facial area, so you’ll have to still cover up/put sun cream on the rest of your body.
Lying with your loved one on a sun lounger is a pretty idyllic image. Fortunately this image can very quickly become a reality when you buy this rattan 2-seater sofa bed by Outsunny.
With an adjustable backrest (to turn into a bed) and storage within the footrest, this sofa is both stylish and functional. This sofa features side tables on either side to hold your drinks and snacks, so once you’ve sat down, there’ll be no reason to get up for the rest of the day – just sit back and relax!
OUR FAVOURITE THING: This sofa comes with two attractive scatter cushions included.
WATCH OUT: The base of this sofa doesn’t feature any wheels, so it might take more than one person to move it.
FOR THE HAMMOCK LOVERS
If only there was a way to get the gentle rocking motion of swinging in a hammock without the hassle of having to find two perfectly placed trees. Well, we’ve got the solution – this Outsunny double lounger. It comes with a cotton seat and with two padded pillows.

OUR FAVOURITE THING: How quickly you can get your chair set up and ready to use – literally a matter of moments!
WATCH OUT: This doesn’t come as part of a set, so if you want multiple chairs you’ll have to buy each one individually.
