On a past trip to London (England that is), we stayed at a hotel in South Kensington which was only a short walk to Hyde Park. On a sunny Autumn morning we were taking a morning stroll and noticed these deck chairs set up by the banks of the river. They looked so colorful, tranquil and very English I thought. We were tempted to take a seat and soak in the sun for a while but unfortunately had other places to see. I can imagine they would have a calming effect if you just sat there and watched the world go by.
