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.
Now more than ever we are all connected 24/7. It’s so important to find time to unplug. My favorite escape is a day at the beach. Digging my toes into the warm sand, feeling the sun’s rays cover my body, and treating myself to some “me” time. When life gets too serious or too cold, 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 on the beach. I aspire to make this journey to a happy place effortless, and a perfect match to a truly blissful day ahead.
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 truly deserve.
See you at the beach,
Leslie and family (Greg, Willa & Lana)
