Daybed Roundup

The daybed is one of the most versatile pieces of furniture there is. It can be a sofa or a bed- provide an extra place to sleep a guest in a tiny room or act as a workhorse in a studio apartment. They also make GREAT kids beds- especially those transitioning from a crib to a “big kid” bed. They work for boys, girls, old and young.  We’ve used them so much in our work and I think they are an important option to consider when decorating!  So I wanted to do a round up of a ton of different styles and price points for you.

Here is a daybed (Restoration Hardware) we used in an office/ guest room.  With the right style and number of pillows daybeds can easily look like sofas.

This one you’ve seen in my book- we designed a custom canopy to make this daybed (Ballard Designs) into a real dream bed for a lucky little girl.

IKEA showcases it’s daybed (for $299!) on a sun porch- perfect for reading, relaxing and maybe even sleeping.
