If designers had a dime for every client who requested a space to feel like the boutique hotel where they once stayed, they could retreat to said resort themselves, permanently. While these jewel-box hotels have long been the inspiration for a chic primary bath or the ultimate, out-on-the-town home bar, the trend has made its way outdoors; for everyone, not just those lucky Southern Californians. As such, sun chaises have made serious strides.
Glam cabanas and futuristic pods once novelties around hotel pools to shield high-profile guests from prying eyes (not to mention the sun) are now readily available online and commonplace in backyards. We chose five ultra-posh standouts that provide style, privacy and protection. There’s the ladder-like daybed from Gloster that could double as a jungle gym, the triangular cabana from Vondom that gives off A-frame cabin vibes and a clean-lined, unassuming chaise with a sun canopy from MamaGreen. They’re all a tiny slice of stay-at-home nirvana.
