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.
For a more modern look and perhaps one that gives you less of a soft look, go with a wrought iron daybed instead of the traditional polished metal. You can also use darker colors in the bedding for the daybed. Look at the movement in the framing and the structure of the daybed. Curves and swirls definitely add a level of softness to the space. Straight lines do this less. When selecting the bed, choose which works for your needs.
From the 1700`s through the 1800`s, homes with more modern bedroom furniture may have incorporated a Daybed with Trundle into the space. They were still present in the main portion of the home and used for the same resting purpose. They did have numerous names, though, including the "sofa da reposo" and "chair `a duchesse." One of the differences during this time is that many made them look more elegant than the humble beginnings from which they came. During this time, the "modern" daybed would beginning to take on a place for people to sit and relax for a short period of time, which meant more elaborate designs were included including things like the wrought iron daybeds.
