Few pieces of furniture perform multiple duties better than a daybed. A daybed is basically a twin bed comprised of a base that holds a standard twin mattress and is surrounded by three tall sides that give it the appearance of a deep sofa. It is sofa, a bed, a lounger, and chaise all in one.
The daybed is sort of like the superhero of furniture; an ample and versatile sofa by day, it magically transforms by the simple removal of cushions, into a cozy, comfortable bed at night.
You can put a daybed in practically any room of the house. In a bedroom, it does double duty as a place to read or study. In a very small den or living room, a daybed is often a more practical choice than a pull-out couch. In a home office, it can accommodate clients during the day and provide sleeping space for guests at night.
Nowadays you can find daybeds in a myriad of materials; from wood and rattan, to metal and wicker. Daybeds can be styled to fit into any décor, and unlike a couch, you can switch it up as often as you like by just changing the pillows and bedcovers or by adding bolsters or a filmy canopy or elegant fabric swag above it. It’s easy to give this piece of furniture the “wow” factor and turn it into the most beautiful focal point of any room in your house.
