Defining the Daybed. Daybeds are intriguing pieces of furniture, yet many are not sure of how they differ from a standard bed or futon. This article will look at areas that distinguish a daybed from other pieces of furniture, so you will know exactly what to look for when shopping for a daybed.
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.
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.
