A German Outdoor Furniture Icon is now available Canada!

Sunhaus Dockside Strandkorb

April 5, 2023, Vancouver, BC – The “Strandkorb” has graced German shorelines for many decades. It was invented in 1882 by a German basket weaver for a customer looking for shelter from wind and sand gusts. The reclineable beach chairs are used at most German seaside resorts where they are available for rent by vacationers. This cultural icon has made its way from the Northern and Baltic Sea beaches into the hearts of its owners.

Trusting that Canadians will appreciate the mini cabanas as well, SunHaus Designs Inc. is importing them from a German manufacturer. The unique outdoor furniture is being sold in Canada under the name “SunHaus”.

These high quality models are made from sustainable hardwood and recyclable wicker. They feature cushioned seating for two and can be partially or fully reclined to a luxurious lounger position. The pull-out foot rests and height adjustable neck pillows add to the comfort. The hand woven wicker canopy allows protection from sun and wind as desired.  Two integrated cocktail tables offer convenient space for drinks or snacks. With two throw pillows included this ultimate piece of furniture has to be experienced to be believed.

Where does the SunHaus come from and how long will it take to arrive?

The SunHaus is imported from Germany and therefore has an extended delivery time, however, we do carry inventory in our warehouse in Mississauga, ON.

History of the Sun Haus:

In the summer of 2019 the founder’s wife inherited a German outdoor furniture icon called “Strandkorb” from her cousin. The two were like sisters and, although separated by the Atlantic, the two visited each other regularly. They spent much time together in the “Strandkorb” chatting and chilling. It became a little oasis on the cousin’s balcony. Earlier that year, she passed away after a short battle with cancer and left the unique chair to the founder’s wife.

The “Strandkorb” was transported to the family weekend home in Wasaga Beach, Ontario. Once there it created much interest amongst family and friends due to its unique character and features. Since this premium piece of outdoor furniture was not available in Canada, the founder decided it was time to bring the “Strandkorb” under the name “SunHaus” to our shores and lakes.
