An outdoor daybed is the kind of statement piece that invites you to relax and reflect, time and time again. It can serve as a private retreat from the world or a spacious seat at a poolside social function. Our collection of designer daybeds includes contemporary cabanas and impossibly luxurious loveseats, all fit for a resort pool area or your backyard.
What accessories should I consider for my daybed?
Once you lay down in your luxury outdoor daybed you should have everything you need close at hand for a day of leisure, which includes protection from the sun. A good umbrella allows you to control your sun exposure, perfect for those who enjoy tanning. If you prefer the calm and tranquility of perpetual shade, an outdoor daybed with a canopy will enhance your privacy and keep you cool. Royal Botania's Tuskany daybed sports a romantic white sun canopy and indulgent features like decorative braiding and adjustable mattresses.
Sun screens provide additional privacy and protection from the elements, ideal for a hospitality setting like a resort or club. We recommend Gloster's Lodge Cabana, or Mamagreen's Aiko, which feature sun shades.
A handy surface to place a cold beverage is also essential to a summer day spent in a patio daybed. Some daybeds, like DEDON's tri-colored woven DALA Loveseat include an integrated shelf, but a stylish side table is also an excellent option.
What style daybed should I order?
Those who desire a more meditative lounging experience would enjoy a chaise-style daybed, which offers plenty of room to stretch but enough privacy to unwind.
Round or oval outdoor daybeds, like Meika from Mamagreen, on the other hand, make a lively and plush hangout for socializing, which is why they are so popular at all-inclusive resorts and island pool lounges.
What material should I choose?
The star of any outdoor daybed is an impossibly comfortable weatherproof cushion that gives the feeling of floating on a cloud. That said, the frame material goes a long way in establishing the style of your outdoor space, given that the daybed is such a prominent piece of furniture.
Teak outdoor daybeds tend towards prominent platforms and a classic look, but, when combined with aluminum, assume a sophisticated, lighter profile. Gloster's Mistral is an excellent example of a modern teak outdoor daybed.
Likewise, daybeds that incorporate woven synthetic ropes offer an updated spin on the classic wicker outdoor daybed. We recommend Manutti's spacious Cascade Daybed and the aptly named Weave Round Sunbed by Point.
