I just watched Something's Got to Give, Marilyn Monroe's last (partial) film, and she is more stunning than ever.  I was going to make a joke about how she is not as stunning as that daybed, but that would be lame because there is Marilyn, and then everything else.  

If you want to get the look, West Elm has a remarkably similar model.  

Widow Daybed $550

Dean Martin stops by a hotel, dotted with Mid-Century Sunshades.  I love these, and I don't know why they aren't more readily available.  Design Within Reach sells one, but it is $1000 and only comes in white (two things that make no sense), and there are a few more options at inmod (but still so overpriced).  

I just don't get why this product doesn't have a version on Overstock or Amazon?  The construction seems fairly standard, and it does not use any more material than other $200 patio umbrella's on discount sites.  Someone make this please.

Now that's what I call well designed.
