Have Daybeds Always Brought Beauty to Your Bedroom? The daybed is an extraordinary piece of furniture with multi-purposes that has a long history dating back to the medieval times. This means that some form of the daybed frame has been around for centuries. However, they have gone through many changes throughout the years. The designs created by the ancient Greek, Roman and the Egyptian artisans and designs made during the Victorian Age were the foundation for all the designs that are available today. It seems that every culture has some form of daybed frame ranging from the very simple to the complex. It has always been an essential part of any home and still holds value today. To help you get an idea of just how popular daybeds have always been, below is an outline explaining what types of daybeds were popular during each era.
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.
The beds in design tend to be lower profile which makes the space look bigger and more open. There are so many options when looking for the right modern bed. You can choose from many woods to metal. Newer designs also come in white which gives your room a very airy and open feel.
Finally, there are 4 types of daybeds you can choose from: The Standard Daybed, Canopy Daybed, Chaise Daybed, and Sleigh Daybed. Standard Daybeds are available in a number of styles, and can feature trundle bed additions. Even though they do not convert from a couch to a sleeper like a futon, the one thing all standard daybeds have in common is that they are adaptable. They can be made to appear like a couch while functioning as a primary or additional sleeping space.
In contrast to a Chaise daybed, a Sleigh daybed uses a more traditional design, inspired by the Victorian Era, utilizing classic lines, and decorative accents. This provides an impression of elegance and sophistication. The above are the main differences between a daybed, and standard beds or futons. Hopefully this article has given you clearer definition as to what a daybed really is. With this in mind, you should have all the necessary tools for you to make an informed decision the next time you are shopping for a daybed.
