Say goodbye to grass stains: we take a look at this season's best picnic chairs

Say goodbye to grass stains: we take a look at this season's best picnic chairs Call us optimistic (or desperate), but we're just about ready to shake off those winter blues. March is just round the corner and the glimmer of sunshine we've seen this week has given us a sense of (perhaps false) hope.

This all points in one direction: eating outdoors. There's nothing we like more at PicnicShop, and we're determined to bring you the very best in picnic paraphernalia so that your next outdoor eating experience is a pleasant one.

This week we're taking a look at the world of collapsible garden chairs, and hopefully bringing you some recommendations for this spring that won't break apart on you after just a few uses.

Director's Picnic Chair by Kingfisher - '16.79 (Amazon)

This folding picnic chair comes complete with a side table and cup holder to boot. It folds down flat when not in use, so ideal for camping or fishing trips. The Director's chair comes in a smart blue colour with chrome legs and is light at just 2.7kg.'

Comfort Reclining Folding Chair by Quest - '36.28 (Amazon)

Moving slightly further up in the market, this premium folding chair from Quest offers a remarkably comfortable portable seat. Available in either green or orange detail, this chair boasts both adjustable rear legs and arm rests. Recline in style in this luxurious flat-folding chair for just '36.28.

Portable Folding Director Chair by onWay - '42.99 (Amazon)

Another director's style chair, offering a classic and comfortable seat. The aluminium frame is coated black and the material is an attractive teal colour. This chair also comes with a fold out table with built in cup holder, whilst the tilted chair back offers ergonomic support. Award winning design at an affordable price.

Fusion Folding Chair by Picnic Time - '199.99 (Amazon)

Perhaps the mother of all folding outdoor chairs, the Fusion by Picnic Time comes with more mod cons and utilities than you can shake a stick at. Padded backpack straps for carrying; check. Fold out table with expandable shelves; check. Detachable cooler bag with multiple utility pockets; check. You can even attach a parasol. It may set you back '200 (and delivery might be prohibitively expensive outside of the US) but you will certainly be the envy of your friends!'
