Gandia Blasco Day Bed
If the Canopy Day Bed, with its water hyacinth-woven base and billowing cotton canopies, is too tropical for your tastes, the Gandia Blasco Day Bed might be more your style. The bed, priced at $7,260, has a modern, minimalist design and is contained within an 80-inch cube. The frame is made of anodized aluminum and the shades are made of vinyl. Polyurethane foam rubber fills that large mattress, which has a removable cover for easy care. Set it out by the pool or in a grassy, shaded area. Judging from the photos on the website that accompany the bed, it can also be used as a "carried chair" of the sort that Cleopatra (or Elizabeth Taylor) might once have found herself in - if you have a few strong guys around to give you a hand.
