The contemporary daybeds have a new design with the side boards replaced by a metal frame mechanism. This mechanism is used to fold the mattress. So in just a few seconds you can transform the daybed into a regular bed, with no effort. This type of furniture is very functional because it can handle consistent usage. And you can use it to modify the design of the room where it is situated, because you can add some colorful cushions. The modern daybed is a better option than the classical sofa because it offers both comfort and functionality.
Finally, there are 4 types of daybeds you can choose from: The Standard Daybed, Canopy Daybed, Chaise Daybed, and Sleigh Daybed. Standard Daybeds are available in a number of styles, and can feature trundle bed additions. Even though they do not convert from a couch to a sleeper like a futon, the one thing all standard daybeds have in common is that they are adaptable. They can be made to appear like a couch while functioning as a primary or additional sleeping space.
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.
From the 900`s to the 1700`s long wooden chest and rope beds were popular. The construction of the rope bed was simple but they were dressed up by using cushions and draperies that were very expensive. In the 1600`s the folding daybed frame was designed and adorned with cushions and curtains to dress them up. The French resting bed designed with six to eight legs was popular in the late 16th century along with the "drop arm" sofa. In the 17th century the "William and Mary" long chair was getting lots of attention.
