Editor's Notes

September 11, 2020:

A good outdoor daybed should feel like a retreat, and we've prioritized comfortable, stylish lounges that evoke this sense of relaxation. Thick cushions and sturdy frames are essential, but the best designs go beyond the basics and invite you to unwind. It's easy to imagine yourself doing just that on any of these daybeds.

For those interested in a nap on the porch, the sofa-style Cambridge Casual and the Christopher Knight Othello provide peace, quiet, and personal space. Couples might prefer the roomy Safavieh Titanium & Sand, a smart match for those patios with outdoor TVs.

If you want to escape the sun, you can do so under the folding tarpaulins of the Aecojoy Round, the Homall Wicker, or the M&W Sectional. Each has seating for a small group and works well for parties, but the pop-up cocktail table on the M&W Sectional lands it at the top of our list. You can also gather with friends on the sleek Suncrown Circular or the Modway Taiji, a stunner with chic curves and vibrant color.

The Bedford Overhead is another head-turner, a delicate piece with an elegant look. We've also included the Zew Bamboo, which isn't the most durable model but has an original design and beautiful island style.

For additional options for outdoor furniture, you may want to consider chaise lounges and canopy porch swings.

Special Honors

Brennon Cube Inspired by Eastern aesthetics, this lounge sets a dramatic scene with its block silhouette, round openings, and 76-inch height. Each side is lined with blue curtains that can be closed with Velcro for privacy or tied back to keep the entryways open. Four matching pillows are included.
