ppsm. Daybeds. July 12th , 2018.
From the beginning of the 1700`s to the middle part of the 1800`s the daybed frame began to take on a more elegant design. They were given names like "a duchesse brisee", "chair `a duchesse", "sofa da reposo" and the "kangaroo` day-bed". Some of these were adorned with beautiful drapes and made to look elegant while others were plain and simple. From the mid 1800`s to the first part of the nineteenth century daybeds were used mainly as a place to sit and rest or to lie down for a short period of time. They took on a variety of different styles throughout this era. They ranged from hard flat surfaces to daybed frames with cushions placed on top to increase the comfort level. By the end of the late nineteenth century, designers began experimenting even more and many unusual designs were made. Some were practical and useful while others were not.
Their Design and Use. One of the main ways that modern daybeds different from what we might see today is in their construction. Metal daybeds were unheard of and therefore most were wood daybeds. Even the best mattresses were made up of cushions and draperies, which were added to the construction of the rope bed. During the 900`s through the 1700`s, it was more common to find long wooden chest and rope beds. All of those cushions would have made them very expensive and therefore it was less common for these pieces of "modern" bedroom furniture to be prominent in a home.
What Quality Will Add. When you add metal daybeds or even wood daybeds to your living room, you can count on a few changes to take place. Most importantly, it will offer a softer charm to the space.
