Inspired by the iconic Sydney Opera House, the Sail Bed is beautiful new piece of outdoor furniture perfect for lounging on your patio. Handwoven in Australia and New Zealand by teams of master weavers, the bed takes an incredible 27 days to craft and is a far cry from mass-produced furniture from your local big box store. The Sail’s unique design also allows the user to control the amount of direct sunlight exposure or privacy via a mechanism which rotates the sails about the base.
