What types of garden day beds do we stock?
Rattan day bed
A rattan day bed is one of our most popular and stocked types of garden day beds. Constructed from rattan styled materials which is a recycled plastic alternative to real rattan, this kind of garden daybed is much more durable and lightweight. Also known as PE rattan (polyethylene), this versatile material is weaved on top of anti-rust powder-coated aluminium frames to make a strong and sound piece. A rattan garden day bed is paired with weather-proof cushions, which can be left outside for short periods of time. However, in order to maintain their appearance, quality and longevity, we recommend storing them inside when they aren't in use.
Outdoor fabric day beds
Kicking back and relaxing on an outdoor fabric garden daybed is a luxurious way to spend your sunny days. Constructed from a powder-coated aluminium frame, quick-drying foam and smart upholstery, you can rely on these outdoor furnishings to perform under all weather conditions. Even after rainfall, the foam and fabric are designed to dry out within an hour. Not only this but the upholstery has been engineered to be weatherproof, UV and fade resistant. Like our other outdoor furniture, we recommend covering it when not in use for extended periods of time to maintain its quality.
Metal day beds
If you prefer modern garden furniture, then our range of metal day beds certainly embodies the contemporary design that you're looking for. Usually available in monochromatic colour schemes like black, grey and white, our metal options are more like a small outdoor daybed so they aren't too heavy. A metal garden daybed is often paired with weather-proof cushions and the structure is incredibly durable.
What garden day bed add-ons are available?
A retractable canopy
A large selection of our garden day beds has included a retractable canopy in their designs, providing ample shade to protect you from the scorching and beautiful sunshine. Simply put the retractable canopy down when you want to bask in the sun, perfect if your garden has minimal shaded spots.
Also an outdoor furniture dining set?
Whilst a garden day bed offers the most comfortable place to unwind, wouldn't it be great if they could double up as another garden furniture piece? A variety of the garden day beds we stock do just this, as a rising table allows you to transform your garden day bed into a dining set with complete ease. Simply remove the day bed cushion off the table when you wish to dine, then use the rising function to lift it to a dining table height and gather your friends and family around on the movable seats. So not only does this contemporary design provide an elegant solution for relaxing and dining outside, but they also make for ultra-stylish daybed designs too.
Not just an exterior furnishing
When the weather undoubtedly switches to the colder winter months, you need not worry about your garden day bed. They make for a fantastic interior and exterior furniture piece, especially in conservatory areas. If you don't wish to bring your garden day bed inside over the colder months, you can cover your garden furniture set to protect it from the elements. Whilst our garden daybeds are incredibly durable and designed to be outside all year round, using a cover will maintain the quality and longevity of it.
