Summer in the garden is its own unique experience. We all look forward to sitting outside with a cool drink, basking in the sun and admiring all our hard work during the spring. In fact, as the weather this past few months has been a let-down, I’m yearning for a long, lazy summer that I can enjoy in my garden doing just that. However, while this is my dream scenario already, it would be made even better by a bit of furniture that I never knew I needed – until now.

It’s just as easy to store too; thanks to it non-bulky size and shape, it can easily slot into a shed or storage space while not in use.
You can also take this chair on holiday, to festivals, or even just to sit at the beach or in the park. It can go anywhere with you – just stick it in the car boot and off you go!

Nobody likes it when their garden furniture doesn’t match! Luckily, this chair is available in three different colourways from QVC: grey, blue and cinnamon. Pick which colour takes your fancy, or coordinate with your existing gardening furniture.
5. Convenient storage
If you don’t have a surface nearby, it can be impractical to keep getting up to use your phone or grab your drink. As an extremely convenient feature, this rocker chair has side pockets to store drinks, phones and other items that we need to keep nearby and accessible.
