Dedon City Camp


Reminiscent of the base camps used by ancient explorers many years ago, Dedon's latest City Camp collection offers a luxurious, comfy hideaway in your own garden. This weatherproof product would definitely be a welcomed addition to my outdoor space - in fact, if I had one of these I would probably stay stretched out in it all day with a book and G&T in hand. Conceptualised by Austrian designer Annette Hinterwirth, the City Camp presents a fun new way to gather with friends or family (it can accommodate five or six adults) - or even to retreat into your own 'happy place' when you need a little time out. Annette describes it as 'your shelter, a place to eat, drink, relax, sleep or just be...wherever you are, by the sea, in the desert or on a metropolitan rooftop'. Similar to the idea of a summer house, if the weather is good it can also come in handy as an outdoor guest bedroom, should you be expecting a larger crowd during the holidays. Available in two different designs - a four-poster double daybed and a sprawling four-poster garden swing - the choice is yours as to how you want to relax and recharge. Made with a powder-coated frame, both versions include useful wrap-around curtains for privacy and shade, several cushions for added comfort, stylish leather belts for easy transportation, and also showcase Dedon's beautifully woven handiwork. If outdoor dining is what you're after, the daybed option comes with a lovely table, perfect for al fresco meals. Exclusively stocked by canetime.com, these items are certainly investment pieces. The Dedon City Camp Daybed retails at R150 000 and the Dedon City Camp Garden Swing at R250 000. Become a fan of Cane Time on Facebook for regular updates...
