Our Story

Belong Couple walking with beach chairs to the beach Woman laying back on Sunflow chair

SUNFLOW is a premium beach brand with the goal of filling every day at water’s edge with smiles. SUNFLOW was founded in 2020 by wife and husband team Leslie Hsu and Greg Besner.

Leslie's happy place is on the beach. One day, after making the all too familiar cumbersome and exhausting journey to the beach and then unpacking our beach chairs, umbrella, towels and other assorted necessities, Leslie collapsed into my uncomfortable and not-very-pretty chair and thought, “There has to be a better way!”

Leslie turned to Greg and said “Someone should design a more comfortable, beautiful, and thoughtful beach chair.”

And voila! SUNFLOW was born.

SUNFLOW gives back

SUNFLOW has donated more than $20,000 to sea turtle protection and ocean conservation on behalf of our customers. In 2024, we will be directing all donations to the National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation. This Florida-based charity will allow us to adopt turtle nests and track our nests' hatchlings. Check back to watch our SUNFLOW sea turtles grow.
