Belle - - Belle Promotion -

When it’s re­lax­ation time noth­ing sur­passes a daybed for lux­ury and ver­sa­til­ity. 1 GUEST DE­SIGN EX­PERT Beatrix Rowe (pic­tured with Belle in­te­rior de­sign ed­i­tor Lucy McCabe) says “Even in our hec­tic life­styles just the sight of a daybed calls you to lie down, get hor­i­zon­tal and re­lax. A daybed is a ver­sa­tile piece that can be used in the cen­tre of a room, against a wall or even in front of a win­dow as a win­dow seat. One of my favourite fur­ni­ture pieces, The PP MObler ‘PP225 Flag Hal­yard’ chair (right) isn’t what you typ­i­cally think of as a daybed but it has the func­tion­al­ity to re­cline.”
