Nandi Day Bed | Highlight image 1
The Day Bed is a historically significant piece of furniture in several South Asian regions. Known as ‘charpai’ or ‘khatiya,’ it is still a regular feature in rural homes across north India. The Nandi Day Bed evolved from the idea of a ‘Basket Sofa’ with bent wood frame that Grund had conceptualised.

The Day Bed is made of wooden slats that are curved at the ends. The slats rest on a frame with rounded legs. The gently curved ends of the slats are achieved by using a special technique to bend the wood by slotting a small piece of wood into the larger piece. This method saves material and limits the amount of waste generated during production. It also lends the bed a distinctive aesthetic with contrasting grain patterns at the ends of the slats. “When technical constraints create a beautiful ornament in the end, it is always a gift from the universe." Grund says with a smile.

The Day Bed comes with a customised mattress and loose cushions inspired by the traditional Indian mattress known as ‘gadda’. Stuffed with organic cotton, the mattress is hand tufted using traditional methods and upholstered in a selection of handspun cotton and silk fabrics from the textile maker Zanav. “It was important to fill the mattress with a traditional and organic material. This way the whole body can feel the authenticity of the idea.”

We offer this product in a choice of Natural Teak and Dark Stain. For Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded to smoothness and transparent wood polish and sealer are applied with a soft cloth to bring out the natural golden brown colour of teak. For Dark Stain, a coat of teak stain is hand applied to give the wood a darker, deeper shade. Please note, each batch of teak is unique and actual shade may vary a little from the reference image.
