Donald D. Dean. Daybeds. December 03rd , 2017.
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.
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.
Buying or choosing a contemporary Bed is a wonderful way to Modernize your space and gives you an open space that makes your feel comfortable and calm. Buying your bed first is always the best option. It is usually the first thing you notice when walking into a bedroom so this should be the main focal point.
With the introduction of daybed covers which are similar to a bedskirt but fitted to mattress, what once was a piece of furniture that was hidden away in a spare room covered with last year`s Christmas wrapping paper has become the focal point of many rooms.
What Quality Will Add. When you add metal daybeds or even wood daybeds to your living room, you can count on a few changes to take place. Most importantly, it will offer a softer charm to the space. You will notice that the bed is more alluring than a traditional sofa. It is more appealing to the mind, which would rather be resting than being stressed. In this way then, this bed does soften the look of your room.
