An essential for small spaces, this unique furnishing is also a great way to add a big dose of lounge style at home. More than a mere alternative to the guest bed, the daybed can be used to create a special space for napping, relaxing and taking a break from a busy day. Because moments of rest are often few and far between, design lovers delight in decorating their daybeds with pillows and seamlessly blending them into their spaces.
Greenery adds a breath of fresh air, and a small table is a great place to set your cup of tea, after all.
Some daybeds even feature a hidden trundle mattress that creates additional room for sleeping once lounging has wrapped up for the day. Whether you’re a big fan of modern design or you’re looking for something that can thrive in eclectic spaces, there’s a daybed for every price point and style.
