A summer essential: the canvas cot. Add a few pillows and throws and it becomes an instant daybed. Here are 10 we're admiring (plus sourcing details). Above: Gardenista contributor Erin Boyle of Reading My Tea Leaves (she's an expert on tiny apartment living) found her vintage army cot on eBay ; it replaces a couch with a larger footprint and frees up valuable floor space.  Above: Designed in 1962 by Ole Gjerlov-Knudsen for his son, who was embarking on a camping trip (Kundsen wanted him to travel in comfort), the OGK Safari Daybed is $620 from the Dwell Store.

Above: The OGK Safari Daybed is now available with a black-stained beech frame, black-dyed natural linen cover, and black-dyed sisal ropes via Goods We Love in NYC (it's newly available at The Line in NYC). Above: Australian stylist  Kara Roselund  tops a small vintage camp cot with slouchy pillows for an instant resting spot.
