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...



The Cleopatra Daybed above came from Amsterdam Modern.  They currently have this extra wide version available; $2,295.


The CB2 Lubi Sleeper Daybed makes a perfect occasional sofa or guest bed, as pictured in this story from Remodelista; $899.


The OGK Safari Daybed is a simple, economical pick; $650.


The Robert Bristow Daybed's classic simplicity makes it well suited to both traditional and modern spaces; contact Ralph Pucci for pricing.


Serena & Lily's Capistrano Daybed is a great indoor/outdoor option; $2,498 - $2,898.


Kevin Walz's Daybed is a top-ten favorite furniture item; contact Ralph Pucci for pricing.
