The Colonists soon cottoned on to the delight of owning a daybed in the African tropics, and adapted the Swahili daybed to their own requirements. Designed as a knock-down piece for easy transport on safari, this makes it convenient to ship and install. Traditionally the legs were turned, and we have incorporated this design element into our daybed. The base size is the same as a standard single mattress.
Our Swahili daybeds are built with the bed ends, backrest and base rails as individual pieces which bolt together very simply with six specially imported Danish connectors. Thus the whole flat-packs very conveniently for transport and installation in tight spaces. It is very simple to assemble with the spanner provided.
We use Zambezi Teak (previously known as Rhodesian teak) to build our magnificent Swahili daybed. It is hard, extremely durable and therefore ideally suited for this fine piece.
Safari daybeds are very popular with guests on the veranda of their safari lodge to lounge away the hot hours between walks or drives in the bush or to relax in the cool of the evening. They are also a wonderful addition to a house or flat with limited space where they are a couch during the day and a bed at night. Often used as an alternative to the Triple Morris Chair
