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.
Daybeds are generally used for sleeping during the daytime (as the name suggests). However, daybeds also differ from standard beds in that daybeds are commonly used as a sofa, making them ideal for use in living rooms, family rooms, dens, and bedrooms. However, because of this rather thin definition, many may still confuse a daybed with a Futon. Daybeds generally do not transform from couch to bed like a futon, and are more decorative than a futon as well, utilizing accessories such as covers, skirts, throw pillows, and comforters.
Can a Daybed Soften the Look of Your Living Room? What would adding contemporary daybeds do for your living room? Although it is not uncommon to use these beds in this area of the home, many people wonder what the overall style consequences would be of placing this type of furniture in the living room. It is a highly functional solution. If you have a small living space and need a bed that can serve both as a couch and a bed for guests, this option works well. It is affordable, too. But, what does it do to the style of the room?
Perhaps the most important feature to remember when buying daybeds for living rooms is to match it with the other decor within the space. Use color, texture and the overall size to help make the bed fit within the room properly. While traditional a type of bedroom furniture, daybeds can also work very well in most living rooms, especially if you are looking for a softer look to the space, but only if selected properly, too.
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!
