This isn’t your mother’s daybed...

... say the guys over at - a site for guys who are looking for well-designed, high-quality products. Thanks for the write up.

This isn’t your mother’s daybed. CB2 is the modern arm of Crate and Barrel and besides having a brand new collaboration with the guys from The Hillside, they also create some pretty awesome furniture. One of their pieces that I like is the CB2 Lawndale Leather Daybed ($1800 and designed by Leonhard Pfeifer). Measuring just under 80 inches it would make a perfect accent piece to any room. It’s obvious to see the Midcentury influence on this piece. From the metal frame to the low profile, it’s screaming to be the only item in a room.

The Lawndale is made from rich buffalo leather from rural India. The leather has been dyed and tumbled for a soft, supple feel. It’ll seem like you’ve had it forever and it’ll continue to patina making it one of your favorite pieces for years to come.


Lawndale leather daybed - CB2 January Catalogue

Here is our Lawndale leather daybed on the CB2 home page and front cover of their January 2016 catalogue. We are really pleased with the finish and the level of comfy-ness. 
Also in the catalogue is our Elixir mini bar and new to the website and in-store is our Claremont small dining circle.

CB2 Designers & Artist profile

Leonhard Pfeifer answers a few questions for the CB2 designers and artists blog.

“I’m enjoying living in a truly global city where world class museums and galleries are on my London door step.”

Where was your favourite place to live?
I’ve been really fortunate to live in some amazing cities in different parts of the world but it’s hard to beat London for its energy and cultural institutions. I am grateful to have grown up surrounded by the natural world of New Zealand, but currently I’m enjoying living in a truly global city, where world class museums and galleries are on my door step.

Although… in the depths of winter we do fantasise of moving somewhere sunny and warm and haven’t ruled out a shift to Barcelona sometime in the future.
