I simply cannot stay inside on a beautiful day, no matter how hot it gets. But as we approach the summer months, I know that a shady, comfortable outdoor spot is going to be a must, so I’ve been on the look out for unique outdoor furniture pieces. The pieces that have caught my attention all have two things in common: plush luxury and built in shade. What I need is the perfect outdoor Day Bed!
Day Beds or lounge beds offer the luxury and comfort of a chaise lounge but are double the size and come with the optional canopy. It’s great for snuggling up with your loved ones or just to lounge around your fabulous self. After extensive research, I’ve narrowed it down to my favorites.
Top 3 Luxurious Outdoor Day Beds with Canopies
- Siesta Key Day Bed
- Malibu Day Bed
- Martinique Beach Day Bed
The Siesta Key Day Bed is a beautiful and easy choice. The UV protected outdoor wicker, weather resistant beige fabric cushions and adjustable canopy provides more than enough space when seeking refuge from the sun. It’s simple design can mesh into any decor, but I was looking for something that would add a little more flair to the backyard.
The Malibu Day Bed is a very versatile piece. A luxurious and intimate setting for two people but can also be separated into four pieces for comfortable group seating. I really like the round design and that there are more fabric options to customize with the outdoor cushions. The dark toned wicker and resilient Sunbrella fabric canopy makes this sumptuous outdoor furniture a must-have piece.
The Martinique Beach Day Bed is like a sheik’s den. It has a curving, structured canopy that reminded me of the Wonka-vator at the end of the original Willy Wonka movie. This is definitely an outdoor furniture piece that stands out. The elegant cream colored, water resistant fabric cushions and five matching throw pillows make it an instant, cozy hideaway. Its sturdy aluminum frame will keep it in good condition, no matter how many pile in.
So, now I was torn. Love the fabric selections on the round Malibu but the design of the Martinique is so unique. My husband’s input started and ended with, “whatever makes you happy”. Good answer. I couldn’t deny that I fell for the unique teardrop shaped design of the Martinique. Decision made.
Even though the Martinique comes with 5 pillows, I also ordered a few outdoor pillows to add some color to the new pod. The geometric, maze pattern of the Suzette pillows in aqua goes perfectly with the colorful, custom fabrics. The pillows are also tailored from Sunbrella fabric and are completely resistant to weather.
Click, click, order is in. Anticipating many beautiful, fun and relaxing afternoons ahead – life is good.
