As a study abroad student in Sydney a few years ago, the number one thing I learned was this: Australians know how to beach. From Bondi to Byron Bay, I spent my semester bouncing from beach to beach and absorbing much more know-how than the classroom could ever offer (that sounds convincing, right?).
Thankfully, I’m lucky enough to live beachside on the other side of the Pacific these days. After settling for an embarrassingly subpar setup for far too long, this summer I turned to Sunday Supply Co. for boutique beach essentials designed in the country whose beaches stole my heart. These Beach Chairs and Umbrellas are the real deal.
An Endless, Aussie-Style Summer
While the concept of beach chairs and umbrellas obviously isn’t a novel one, Sunday Supply Co. offers an elevated -- and certainly notable -- update on the rusty, dusty essentials of beach days past. Designed by the professional beach-goers of Australia, Sunday Supply Co. essentials feature high quality fabrics, vintage-inspired patterns, and 100% cotton tassels. For the regular beach-goer craving practicality, convenience, and style, Sunday Supply Co. delivers. Don’t just take my word for it, though: Domino and Vogue sing the brand’s praises as well.

It’s All In The Details
Sunday Supply Co. nails a minimalist-chic aesthetic while focusing on the details that count. Each Beach Umbrella offers a large 2M shade canopy with an extendable tilted wooden pole, meaning that as the sun moves, your trusted sun protection moves with it. Sunday Supply Co.’s umbrellas are made from high-quality materials, including an FSC approved beechwood pole, powder coated aluminum alloy hardware, and UPF 50+ polyester premium fabric. The best part is that while your umbrella feels sturdy and well-made, it weighs only 12 lbs and comes with a matching carry bag. Transporting it to the beach is as easy as slinging it over your shoulder and heading out the door.
A beach book reader, I was elated to find the brand’s Beach Chair as I had all but given up on reading at the beach in recent years. Without abs of steel (which, for the record, I’m still working on), reading at the beach has been an exclusively belly-down experience, and my tan has suffered from it. Readers rejoice: this Sunday Supply Co. favorite is positioned at an ultra comfortable, low profile angle and boasts of a surprisingly plush water, tear, and fade resistant cushion. Much like its umbrella counterpart, the chair is easy to fold and store, comes with a carrying strap for your other shoulder -- and the best part is that the cushion’s slip is machine washable. For a set practical in each and every way, it’s amazing that this duo is so sleek and stylish, too.
Enviable Beach Aesthetic: Unlocked
While the nuts and bolts of Sunday Supply Co.’s beach setup are certainly the practical reason to invest, the brand caught my eye for its beautiful vintage-inspired patterns and colorways. Take a look at the brand’s IG page and tell me you aren’t sold instantly. It’s no wonder popular patterns like Natural Instinct, Pacific Stripe, Black Sands, and Summer Deck are regularly sold out. With enough detail to catch the eye of passersby, Sunday Supply Co.’s designs feel elevated, chic, and perfectly playful for a beach day.
At $249 for the umbrella and $149 per chair, Sunday Supply Co.’s offerings are an investment -- and, for the record, a worthy one. I recently acquired a Dunes set and have been over the moon to embark on my walk to the beach each weekend (yes, I carry both the umbrella and chair myself -- and I’m 5’3”). I feel as though I’m treating my friends to a little vacation vibe when I set up shop (though, I’ll admit I’ve had to ask for a little help successfully planting my umbrella in the sand). The only downside is that I feel a tiny bit bad that my friends aren’t lucky enough to have such a comfy place to take a seat and relax. I can only expect that in due time, my Dunes umbrella will be surrounded by a semi-circle of oh-so chic Sunday Supply Co. chairs courtesy of my beach crew.
Dreamy Beach Days For Summer, For...ever
For the function, aesthetic, and ease Sunday Supply Co. offers, I simply must recommend the brand to those who beach on the regular. If you’re a regular reader of my past TQE work, you may recall I’m working on cleaning up my shopping habits by investing in high-quality, well-made pieces that will last for years to come. Sunday Supply Co. fits the bill in every way -- and I’m looking forward to enjoying LA’s endless summer with my boutique beach essentials in tow!
