The New Eighteenth Century Style
I don’t know about you but after our Thanksgiving holiday I’ve been walking around in a turkey stupor. The last guest is gone and after all the cooking and cleaning I’ve done I’m ready to laze about doing nothing except read a book. What better piece of furniture to turn to then a daybed.
Eleanor Cummings, Veranda
Daybed, the very word allows us to sleep when the sun is out…it’s even a spot for some serious slumbering when the moon’s high. What other piece of furniture dictates a particular use at a given time?

As seating, the daybed serves as a settee or little sofa.

In a small room it can replace a sofa entirely freeing up additional floor space.

If the room is large, a daybed can anchor a secondary seating group that complements the main pieces.
Daybeds work well in any room or as here an outside room. This is one versatile piece that doesn’t state what room to place it.
There are no rules of placement either and using one out in the room lends itself nicely so that people can sit from both directions.
This setting just says, “Dive right in and enjoy!”
Because of the daybeds sculptural nature it can easily stand alone.

I bet you thought I was going to show you a picture of my daybed huh? Unfortunately I don’t have one and as much as I would like a daybed I don’t really have anywhere to put one. So how about you, anyone out there with a daybed?
