f_toldo. Daybeds. December 15th , 2017.
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.
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?
Often bedding sets are sold that include the bedskirt, a comforter, and two or three pillow shams that can easily covert the sleep space into a fashionable settee. The colors and patterns allow for easy decorating to suit almost any room and any style. Whether you prefer the look of an English country cottage or a more modern style, there is an ensemble that will complement almost any room. For those who have limited space, such as a small apartment where the bedroom doubles for the living room, the transition is an easy fix. Small one room apartments can now have style that is welcoming under any circumstances.
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.
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.
