Fresh design finds: Three dream day beds

Friday, May 25th, 2012

We love a good day bed.

They’re comfortable, relaxing and a great alternative to a sun lounger for using outside. Here are three well designed and gorgeous looking dream day beds!

Fresh design contemporary garden day beds

Dune day bed

The Dune day bed, by Barlow Tyrie, is an elegant piece of furniture for a contemporary garden. It’s made from hand-woven resin fibre which is weatherproof and has plenty of space to curl up on. It’s available from John Lewis.

Fresh design daybeds

Atlantic day bed

A lot of daybeds tend to have rounded cover shades, but we love the look of this Atlantic Daybed, that’s produced in a tipi tent style. It’s from House of Fraser.

Contemporary outdoor day bed

Padstow day bed

Compared to the two other options, the Padstow day bed is somewhat more affordable, but is still equally well styled. We particular the addition of some hidden storage, so you can stash away your suncream, shades, books or magazines. This one’s available from Tesco.

Stylish Harry sofa

This super sleek, ultra modern sofa is in a rich aubergine purple shade and is a great statement sofa for a room.

The buttoned back and curvy sides is reminiscent of classic 50s style and the sofa is made in a traditional way, with a hard wearing Vence aubergine fabric and stylish black stained conical legs.

The Linea Harry sofa three seater sofa was £999, but is now reduced down to £599 in the January sale at  House of Fraser.

Delicate flower leaf ceramic candle holder

Unusual candle holder

This white ceramic candle holder is designed to look like the petals and leaves surrounding a flower head. But rather than a flower bud residing inside, you can pop in a tealight or other small candle.

The inside of the leaves are decorated in gold, so when the candle is lit, it emits a golden glow – perfect if you want to create a romantic feel in a room.

The Pied a Terre flower candle holder looks more expensive than it is – as it’s only £16 at House of Fraser.

Index style chopping board

Index style chopping board

We love this Joseph Joseph index chopping board set and now’s a great time to buy it, as there’s a big discount on the product at House of Fraser.

The chopping board set consists of a storage case with four colour-coded chopping boards in it – each has it’s own index tab, so you can easily tell which is which. It’s a great way of ensuring that each chopping board is used for chopping certain foods, like raw meats or vegetables, and their uses aren’t mixed up.

The white Joseph Joseph index chopping board set was £42, but is now down to only £24 at House of Fraser. Buy it before it sells out!
