Modern Daybeds - A Great Option For Every Room. As you can guess from its name, the daybed is a piece of furniture which is used for sleeping during the day. But daybeds are more similar to sofas that to normal beds. This is why you usually find the daybeds positioned in the living room. The modern daybed has the structure of a sofa: a back and 2 arms. But the contemporary daybeds have the advantage that they have a nice design. Because of the modern design, you can add a daybed as a piece of furniture in your new stylish living room. Of course, the daybed can be a great option if you are living in a studio. During the night you can use it as a bed and during the day it has the role of a sofa.
From the beginning of the 1700`s to the middle part of the 1800`s the daybed frame began to take on a more elegant design. They were given names like "a duchesse brisee", "chair `a duchesse", "sofa da reposo" and the "kangaroo` day-bed". Some of these were adorned with beautiful drapes and made to look elegant while others were plain and simple. From the mid 1800`s to the first part of the nineteenth century daybeds were used mainly as a place to sit and rest or to lie down for a short period of time. They took on a variety of different styles throughout this era. They ranged from hard flat surfaces to daybed frames with cushions placed on top to increase the comfort level. By the end of the late nineteenth century, designers began experimenting even more and many unusual designs were made. Some were practical and useful while others were not.
Daybeds are not just for bedrooms any more. They have become so much more functional and aesthetically pleasing, that some of us have actually replaced our sofas with one. Having much more appeal than a sofa bed, these daybeds are becoming more and more popular.
Daybeds Have New Covers Adding Style to Any Room. Daybeds have made a come back in the world of furniture and style. Once, years ago, the best one could hope for was something that looked like a twin bed with an extra side rail. Not so today. In today`s world, one can expect to see this versatile piece of furniture in almost any room.
Throughout Victorian times, what we know of contemporary daybeds were nonexistent. Rather, these beds were often wood daybeds, with limited comfort to them. However, the look and charm of these beds, and all of the layers of cushions and fine fabrics is something that has remained present throughout history. You will find modern elements to them today, including eco friendly mattress options and even upholstered headboards. Still, the look of them is very much still Victorian in many cases.
