The Modern Daybed

 

Cleopatra daybed at home.

 

I consider any piece of furniture that invites an impromptu nap to be a must-have item, which explains why a daybed, in one form or another, shows up in nearly all my design projects (including my home, pictured above).  While they appear to have been made for lounging and, therefore, have a somewhat frivolous connotation, daybeds are deeply practical, providing flexible seating in tight spaces as a sofa-alternative, and serving as a place for overnight guests to crash.  

Here are a few favorites...
