For a truly indulgent and relaxing experience, no patio should be without a garden day bed.
Generally speaking, the ideal piece of furniture for your garden will be constructed from organic rattan for the highest quality manufacturing, as well as being completely weather-proof in most dimensions (naturally, it is recommended that cushions are stored inside when not in use but an aluminium frame with proper rust-proofing is highly desirable) to ensure a long life of frequent and enjoyable use.
Here we take a look at 12 of the best garden day beds that are currently available to help you make an informed choice.
