My happy place has always been the beach; the sound of waves crashing, sand between my toes, and the warmth of the sun on my shoulders. For as long as I can remember, my beach days have been my best days. From belly laughs with friends, to strolling along the shoreline holding hands with the love of my life, to walking my baby daughter to the water’s edge for her first dip in the salty waters... these moments are my most cherished memories.
One day, our family packed up for a short walk from our beachside rental to the sanctuary of the sandy beach. The process of loading up our day’s gear and dragging it to the beach was nothing short of a comical parody. It was truly laughable how cumbersome and clumsy this seemingly simple chore was. I kept thinking, why can’t this commute to the beach be easier? Why aren’t there friendlier beach accessories; easier to carry, more comfortable, more thoughtful and much, much more beautiful?
With that in mind, I set out to create the beach experience I wanted. Fast forward three years and SUNFLOW has become a reality...
What is SUNFLOW?
SUNFLOW is a premium beach brand with the goal of filling every day at water’s edge with smiles. 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, I collapsed into my uncomfortable and not-very-pretty chair and thought, “There has to be a better way!” I turned to Greg and said “Someone should design a more comfortable, beautiful, and thoughtful beach chair.” And voila! SUNFLOW was born. Actually, it took almost three roller coaster years for it to become a reality, but well worth the sleepless nights.
More so than ever before, we are connected to work 24/7. It’s so important to find time to unplug. Countless books have been written about achieving work/life balance, I suggest you pack up the books and head to the beach. Dig your feet into the warm sand, let the sun’s rays kiss your body and treat yourself to some “me” time. When life gets too serious or too cold (I live in the Northeast), I find the nearest strip of sand and bask in the sun’s rays. I designed the SUNRISE chair to eliminate the stress of setting up your little spot in the sun. I was inspired to marry fashion and function when I began imagining the best seat for the beach. I think it is the key to a truly peaceful experience.
Whether you are an avid surfer, an accomplished sand castle architect or a marathon book reader, SUNFLOW will help you find the relaxation and rejuvenation that you so deserve.
