Outdoor Shaded Daybeds

Do you believe were an Egyptian queen in a previous life? Yea, me too. If so, you’ll feel quite regal, and right at home stretched out on a shaded outdoor daybed. lskjeowihilesrutnsve9rntulseoritunlseoritynleoityhneoit7nyoity;eoitn;ot8aynerityaeo;ithdelmar queen outdoor daybed rest hard
DELMARRESTHARDABOVEjfeoirtuw847yvw948e75pbw9er7tyvw9b8eryt98er7tbpv98rytuwlverutnb98iyrtryl9eytpnbyut This ultra luxurious trend in outdoor furniture would seem to be out of sync with the times.  But in fact, there are some good reasons to believe that outdoor daybeds will be around for a while. After all, we finally get it: Too much direct sun is not healthy, or compatible with a long term beauty regime.  Pass the self tanner! palmetto wicker daybed pot barn orleans daybed walmart  $268tuuci bali lounge PALMETTOPOTTBARNlieujo9nupnwv9riytuseriythbslnriytnvseytulise8rutnvliryvlhtjcmol85nuovwb98hvloeintvaohtks

You know a trend is here for real, when Walmart jumps on board, like with their Orleans Outdoor Daybed (above left) for $268!  I think you could do a lot better with the pillows by grazing from other suppliers, such as the pillows shown on the Pottery Barn Palmetto Wicker Daybed.  At $1999 the Palmetto is reasonably well priced, and very pretty!

The one below that, on the left is from the other end of the spectrum.  Tuuci makes truly top shelf, very luxurious resort quality outdoor furniture and hardware. Their Bali Lounge shown here in it’s fully draped and cushioned glory runs about $10,000.

Summer’s coming, and vacations for many have been curtailed. The resort-like luxury of a shaded daybed can make your staycation quite convincing:  Close your eyes, sip on your home made pina colada, and it’s almost like being in the Caribbean!

These  curved, ovular daybeds seem very urbane to me.  I’d love to sit on this one, while surrounded by a garden with modern sculptures. The Hamptons, perhaps?

Get a good book, and a glass of iced tea (or something stronger) …and start relaxing the shade!


P.S.  I sat on this one last week at the High Point Furniture Market ( the Hallo from Kannoa) and had my Cleopatra moment!

  1. Definitely a lovely, lounge-y and manditory item for beside the pool! My favourite is the first daybed you’ve shown, but I’m also drawn to the organic nature of the wicker one from Iraya. Thanks for feeding my Cleopatra desires!!

  11. Daybeds by the pool ! What a novel idea.

  12. These outdoor shaded daybeds are really awesome. The designs are very beautiful. Your first sight of them make you feel like, wait a minute. You ask yourself, what is this? Let me take a close look. They are very cute how are they made? You will feel like lying on one for the rest of the day with a very nice weather in a garden of flowers.
