Generous, comfortable and superbly stylish, our popular Day Bed One is a chic but practical piece of furniture. In the daytime use for lounging and additional seating and at night as a put-me-up bed for guests who just don't want to go. (Day Bed One shares the proportions of a standard single bed.)
The base of our day bed is solid oak (or solid ash for the black lacquered version) and employs a screw leg system. The mattress is made for us by Naturalmat in Devon, England and has an organic latex core wrapped in organic coir and wool. It comes upholstered in a Bute fabric from Scotland with a six-button detail and piped edges.
- Anti dust-mite lambswool bolster
- Woven wool fabric from the Isle of Bute, Scotland

Care & assembly
Our pegged furniture arrives fully assembled, however for those who choose the screw-on versions of our series one, please download the assembly instructions. To care for the furniture we use a traditional wood oil finish followed by wax, applied by even application to the timber planks. This finish seals the pores of the timber, enhancing the natural structure of the wood and forming a water repellent protection against everyday wear and tear. This finish deepens the natural colour of the timber. One important benefit of this finish is the relative ease with which damage is repaired, as the timber can be reapplied with wax at any moment. We recommend you use only products supplied or approved by Another Country. Day Bed One is designed with screw-in legs. Please check regularly to ensure that these are always securely screwed in as the natural movement of the timber and use over extended periods of time can loosen and weaken the leg joints.
With regard to the upholstery items, weekly light vacuuming is desirable to remove dirt and dust particles and greatly extends the life of the fabric. Under conditions of normal wear, annual or semi- annual cleaning will preserve and enhance wool/woolblend upholstery. Never use soap, ammonia, bleach or other cleaners intended for use on hard surfaces. Do not rush or panic, but work patiently and thoroughly. If the stain cannot be identified or removed, seek expert advice from a reputable dry cleaning organisation. Download the care instructions.
