Our favourite lounge chairs for #NationalRelaxationDay

It's #NationalRelaxationDay - what better way to relax than kicking your feet up after a hard day's work with a book and drink in hand (alcohol recommended), whilst you're sat on your favourite lounge chair.

We've been scouring Instagram today to find some of our favourite lounge chairs that would be perfect for exactly the above this evening. Here are our favourite relaxation retreats on Instagram...

Vitra Eames Lounge Chair

The king & queen of all lounge chairs. Comfort, style & material all meticulously-merge to form this brilliant and timeless piece of design; the Vitra Eames Lounge Chair.

This little fellow has Relaxation Day all figured out...

Vitra Grand Repos

Another heavenly lounge chair from Vitra. The Grand Repos has an air of sophistication and rigidity about it, but that's all a front. Climb in and recline the deep, spacious seat and you'll be transported to nirvana in no time.

Fritz Hansen Egg Chair

One of the most iconic chairs ever designed. The Fritz Hansen Egg chair invites you to sit down and be encapsulated by its shapely curves. Relaxation Day may just spillover...

This study is the perfect relaxation spot for book worms...

Knoll Womb Chair

Designed by Eero Saarinen after Florence Knoll's request for "a chair that was like a basket full of pillows, something I could really curl up in." So here it is...

Carl Hansen CH07 Shell Chair

Although it doesn't look as comforting as the rest of the chairs in our list, the Carl Hansen Shell Chair is surprisingly cosy. The slow curve of the seat and soft recline of the backrest make it hard not to lounge around.

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Thank you for all your help and customer service, the Eames Lounge Chair arrived yesterday and I love it.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
