As found in the pages of the SFGate.com, the editors of Houzz gathered together some interesting pictures of stylish daybeds. As the article states, "There are lots of...styles available that look more like pieces of furniture, and many are still suitable for sleeping."
The daybed offers flexibility and, in may designs, a lighter look than traditional seating or sofas.
Case in point is the modern classic Barcelona Daybed (up top), by Mies Van der Rohe. Contemporary ottomans and daybeds such as this present themselves as modern objects of art.
A modern, contemporary daybed look that also converts into a sofa is this Zuo convertible sofa design (above).
Daybed-style sofas, like the one pictured above, offer a comfterable place for seating or lounging. The backless design is lighter and takes up less visual space. In this case, the backless design offers a view to the courtyard outside the windows.
This daybed has a Javanese feel, with it's slat sides and tall canopy. Like many of the daybeds we offer, it can be used as seating in the day, then be turned into a sleeping bed at night.
We like the look! See the article for more photos. Room photos thanks to Houzz and SFGate.com.
