Summer is here and quality time outdoors with family and friends is customary, especially as the holiday season nears and you find yourself winding down to a well-deserved break. Soak up the sun in style on a luxurious daybed, guaranteed to be the highlight of your time outdoors. Alon Sachs, co-owner of South Africa’s leading furniture and décor specialist – Mobelli Furniture + Living – says a daybed is the most convenient way to enhance your space and truly relax and unwind with a chilled beverage in hand, after a long day.
“A daybed brings so much flair to your outdoor area and helps you to achieve that contemporary, coordinated look easily. They’re elegant, tastefully designed and so eye-catching, guests will be impressed from the second they walk in,” he says.
But Sachs, who’s been in the furniture and décor industry for 20 years says choosing just the right furniture is essential, and aspects like the size of the space vs the size of the furniture is paramount to choosing the best one to enhance the area.
Sachs suggests a few pieces to help bring outdoor areas to life, effortlessly:
Swivel in the Sun
Soak-up the sun perfectly on the Aura Swivel daybed; it’s both comfy and classy and its hidden wheels allow those seated comfortably to turn toward the direction of the sun easily.
The Aura is available in safari brown and ash white, platinum and bronze are available as special requests. “The Aura is unlike any other daybed, it allows you to track every bit of the sun’s rays while seated firmly on this piece of outdoor furniture and it’s a stunner too,” he says. The Aura Swivel Daybed retails at R31 998 and R 39,999 with canopy.
Breathtaking and Beautiful
The Pyramid daybed is pristine and an absolute modern luxury. This daybed has been designed to wow, and evokes feelings of sublimity and tranquillity. And with a set of front curtains, it this daybed provides privacy at the same time.
“The Pyramid is flawless, creates a relaxing ambience, will fit in well with any outdoor space and is both trendy and tasteful,” says Sachs.
The Pyramid daybed is a special order item and costsR 57,019, with the cushion included (and R46 999 excluding the cushion).
Sun loungers can also serve as a statement piece, enhancing your living space by drawing the eye to a beautiful piece of crafted furniture and transforming your home into a luxurious space of relaxation. The Bello Sun Lounger is made from powder-coated virgin aluminium with teak wood features which combines warmth and sleek design in a perfect expression of contemporary design.

If you’re going to be languishing on a day bed, you’re going to need something to rest your drink on and the Tre tables from Mobelli are the perfect accompaniment.
