Outdoor Beds for Sleeping Under the Stars
For some, an outdoor bed - otherwise known as a daybed - is the ultimate in backyard furnishings. Unlike a hammock, it's something that is completely unnecessary, but holds a certain appeal for those who literally love to lie in the lap of luxury. It combines the best of two pastimes: sleeping and spending time outdoors. After all, everyone needs to sleep, right?
We researched daybeds and actually came up with something for every budget: starting at around $400 to well over $6,000. Take a... look at some of the nicest beds in which to sleep under the stars.Continue to 2 of 6 below.

Coral Coast Del Rey Daybed
What: The Del Rey double chaise lounge with a canopy.
Where: Available from Hayneedle.com
Materials: Texteline sling on a lightweight, rust-resistant, powder-coated aluminum frame. The canopy is made of the same fabric.
Seeing as how so many are priced so high, did you think that an outdoor bed was beyond your wildest dreams? The Coral Coast Del Rey is under $400, making it possible to attain slumber in a resort-like manner right in your own backyard. While it might not be something... you would want to sleep on every night throughout the entire summer, it is a kind of swanky hammock, what with its padded headrest and all. While it's made of durable materials, you'll want to disassemble it so that you can enjoy it again next year and the year after that.Continue to 3 of 6 below.
