This custom Teak daYbed was designed and built around an architectural post in the client's relatively small lĀnai OR PATIO space.
Harsh climate and a frequently entertaining home meant this DAYBED NEEDED to be strong and stable while not overpowering the available space.
Material - Teak hardwood, Marine grade plywood
Dimensions - 8' L x 36" W x 13" H Frame Seat + 5" Cushion
Completed - January 2019
Seat cushion + pillows by Maui Upholstery Services (client coordinated).
Our goal in this phase was to make the most of the relatively compact lānai (patio) in order to create a durable seating area to entertain guests, yet also serve as a comfortable daybed for two.
As with all design phases, we started out with a few exploratory sketches to help set the direction. From there, we moved into renderings and refined the details.
Teak is often the best choice for outdoor applications as its high oil content makes it weather and critter resistant. While not the easiest wood to work with, it is well worth the effort.
This low frame features a continuous grain wrap, extra storage, and client-organized outdoor rated cushions.
