With the introduction of daybed covers which are similar to a bedskirt but fitted to mattress, what once was a piece of furniture that was hidden away in a spare room covered with last year`s Christmas wrapping paper has become the focal point of many rooms.
What Quality Will Add. When you add metal daybeds or even wood daybeds to your living room, you can count on a few changes to take place. Most importantly, it will offer a softer charm to the space. You will notice that the bed is more alluring than a traditional sofa. It is more appealing to the mind, which would rather be resting than being stressed. In this way then, this bed does soften the look of your room.
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.
