Donald D. Dean. Daybeds. December 08th , 2017.
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.
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.
Modern Daybed - A Modern Look For Any Room. When searching or shopping for a daybed, we often do not realize the many styles that are now offered to us by manufacturers. Daybeds used to come in pretty basic styles and usually were of wooden construction and for the most part, quite boring in an architectural sense. The furniture industry has come a long way and continues to reinvent these practical yet stylish pieces of furniture.
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.
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.
