Donald D. Dean. Daybeds. December 03rd , 2017.
From the 1700`s through the 1800`s, homes with more modern bedroom furniture may have incorporated a Daybed with Trundle into the space. They were still present in the main portion of the home and used for the same resting purpose. They did have numerous names, though, including the "sofa da reposo" and "chair `a duchesse." One of the differences during this time is that many made them look more elegant than the humble beginnings from which they came. During this time, the "modern" daybed would beginning to take on a place for people to sit and relax for a short period of time, which meant more elaborate designs were included including things like the wrought iron daybeds.
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.
Canopy daybeds are usually easy to spot from the four posts it has on its corners. This is a popular choice for children or teens because of the charming and romantic feel it exudes. A Chaise daybed is an ideal place to sit, or have a good night`s sleep, depending on the manufacturer, brand and type. They are available in a number of styles, designed as a place to stretch out for a nap, as a comfortable place to read or relax, as a place to sleep or as a lounger. Most Chaise daybeds use a modern or contemporary design.
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.
Daybeds Have New Covers Adding Style to Any Room. Daybeds have made a come back in the world of furniture and style. Once, years ago, the best one could hope for was something that looked like a twin bed with an extra side rail. Not so today. In today`s world, one can expect to see this versatile piece of furniture in almost any room.
