.. . about Daybeds... ..
Growing up, we had a daybed in the guest room. I remember thinking that it was by far the coolest piece of furniture in the whole house. I haven't seen very many since, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why.
Take, for example, the one above which is quietly chic, in the way that it compliments the wall treatments with the curtain-less canopy.
Where as this is daybed with its edgy attitude, low lines and geometric shapes, would look great in a downtown loft!
While daybeds are typically bigger than your average sofa, they are a great space saver, when correctly placed. Throw some comfy pillows on during the day for a seriously comfy sofa, and replace them with a comforter in the evening to use for a guest bed!
Now this daybed is a bit more classic in style with its high sides and backless support; it's not ideal for lounging. However, with that color and carved frame, I think an argument can still be made for it.
Make it Yours!
You can pick up a vintage wrought iron frame for a decent price, and with the weather warming, up take advantage and update it with a fresh coat of paint.
This is a great take on a daybed for the exterior! A couple of palettes, easily paintable, paired with some comfy cushions & pillows, and you have a great summer hangout. If I had a yard, I would park this under the nearest tree.... .. ... . daydreaming, again.
A great addition to the front of the pool house! Robert Allen & Sunbrella make great outdoor fabrics that will keep your daybed looking chic year round.
