Daybeds may also incorporate a trundle unit as well. Trundle units allow for an extra mattress to be stored underneath, to be pulled out for extra sleeping space when needed. You can choose a pop-up trundle unit, where the extra mattress can be rolled and elevated to the same height of the daybed, converting it into a king-sized sleeping area. The other option for trundle units is a pull-out, where the extra mattress is rolled out on wheels or a glider. However, these do not elevate to the daybeds height, forcing you to sleep much lower to the ground.
Their Design and Use. One of the main ways that modern daybeds different from what we might see today is in their construction. Metal daybeds were unheard of and therefore most were wood daybeds. Even the best mattresses were made up of cushions and draperies, which were added to the construction of the rope bed. During the 900`s through the 1700`s, it was more common to find long wooden chest and rope beds. All of those cushions would have made them very expensive and therefore it was less common for these pieces of "modern" bedroom furniture to be prominent in a home.
In the 1600`s, a new type of bed was incorporated into many of the well to do homes. It features a fold up design which allowed it to be put away when it was not needed. The folding daybed frame had cushions and thicker fabrics used to dress it up. In the years to come, the French resting bed became popular. It featured between six and eight legs. Another option was the William and Mary long chair as well as the drop arm sofa. However, daybeds were still an important part of many homes.
With sleek lines and endless designs you cant go wrong with choosing a Modern daybed. It will add sophistication to your room and years of enjoyment. The good thing is too, if you get tired you can always change the bedding but the bed will never go out of style. So choose a contemporary or modern bed for something a little different then the everyday bed.
When there is need for extra sleeping room the problem has been solved. Imagine a single bed that has become a sofa in style and usage. It is possible today. Starting with the construction, today we can find them made of iron, brass, and wood. No longer does this piece of furniture look like a spare item stuck in the middle of a room like a huge white elephant. Quite the contrary!
