Make your favorite reading, lounging, or dozing nook even more enticing with a pretty cushioned pallet. Inspired by tufted French mattresses and old-fashioned bedrolls, the latest versions are designed to provide a soft, stylish landing spot, both indoors and out.

 

To create this easy seating, we outfitted an OGK Safari daybed with the J-Life International Shiki futon, and added pillows.

Roll Call

 

Blankets are for sharing, but these cushions are ideal for stretching out solo when laid on the grass. Put out a few to turn your yard into a prime glamping (or just stargazing) site.
