Canopy Beds Done Right

blackband-Design Crush


I grew up sleeping in my aunt’s hand-me-down single canopy bed – or my can of peas bed, as I referred to it until I knew better. While I loved it at first I eventually began to despise it, and at the age of 10 was gifted my very own brand new cherrywood daybed. When I got older my mom and stepdad got a more modern metal version of a canopy which made me change my opinion on my old nemesis. And lately I’ve been noticing more and more canopy beds that I’d be more than happy to welcome into my own bedroom for a second chance at happiness.

Weekend Sunbed

Weekend Sunbed-1-Design Crush


It’s pouring down rain as I type this, and it basically has been raining every day for the past few weeks. Not all day but for parts at least. Anyway, my desire to bask in the sun is at a high and these Weekend Sunbeds look like an ideal place to lounge with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Choose from twelve colors.
