  • The hard-wax oil finish gives the timber a natural lustre and creates a microporous seal that allows the timber to breathe. It also protects the bed from everyday wear and tear as well as stains and spills. Please note that the hard-wax oil continues to harden for up to 4 weeks after application so please take care in the first few weeks after delivery.
    For daily cleaning of the timber, use a clean damp cloth and wipe in the direction of the grain. Make sure to remove excess moisture with a dry cloth. Be sure to wipe immediately if any spillages, especially liquids that stain. Do not use any detergents, furniture polishes or abrasive cleaners.
    For long term care, a periodic application of hard-wax oil every year or two is recommended.
    For the wool, weekly light vacuuming is advised. For spills, immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth. Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is left the more difficult it is to remove. We recommend professional dry cleaning 2-3 times a year.
Why we love this product

Imagine lounging on this modern interpretation of a traditional design whilst sipping on a coffee, playing chess or reading a book.

This chic bespoke day bed is not only a practical item, it is also a beautiful statement piece that will work in any sitting room, study or studio. It looks elegant with one bolster but two bolsters makes it excellent for the corner of a room.

Ideal for a power nap but also useful as a generous and suitable single bed if needed at night. We adore the Galvin Brothers' signature 'wobbly' legs that are wonderfully eccentric. We also love how this day bed merges functionality with a classic and timeless style. It will work as a comfortable seat for parties or even afternoon tea catch-ups with friends.
