Comfy couch by day, dreamy bed by night, daybeds are dangerous! There is always the chance that a brief moment of respite with your favourite mag and cup of coffee, nestled amongst layers of cushions could turn into an accidental nap……….
Then you wake with a start to discover you are late to pick the kids up from school and there is no possible way you are going to drop one off at the skate park and make it to ballet on time………..
The invention of the daybed borders on genius, they can be used in almost any room in the house including outdoor rooms. They can be placed in front of windows and work especially well if your space requires that a bed needs to be pushed hard against the wall. Essentially a bed disguised as an oversized couch that manages to roll style, practicality and luxury all into one piece of furniture.
Daybeds provide a place to read, relax and admire the view and are the perfect sleeping space for guests. In terms of scale, they are a large, comfortable piece of furniture that draws the eye and creates a focal point. Providing the ideal place to make a statement with your favourite soft furnishings, daybeds are the ultimate place to introduce colour, texture or pattern to a room and I guarantee guests and family members will be drawn to it. To top it off just add the perfect lighting to highlight your style; a beaded chandelier, industrial pendant or a string of lights depending on the mood you want to create. Now imagine yourself curled up here escaping the day/family/work and all other boring responsibilities……..
