ppsm. Daybeds. July 27th , 2018.
Buying or choosing a contemporary Bed is a wonderful way to Modernize your space and gives you an open space that makes your feel comfortable and calm. Buying your bed first is always the best option. It is usually the first thing you notice when walking into a bedroom so this should be the main focal point.
In the 1600`s, a new type of bed was incorporated into many of the well to do homes. It features a fold up design which allowed it to be put away when it was not needed. The folding daybed frame had cushions and thicker fabrics used to dress it up. In the years to come, the French resting bed became popular. It featured between six and eight legs. Another option was the William and Mary long chair as well as the drop arm sofa. However, daybeds were still an important part of many homes.
What Were Daybeds Like in the Victorian Bedroom. Imagine beautiful iron daybeds in a Victorian bedroom and you might imagine frills and extra bedding, but in fact, this is not likely to be the case. During Victorian times, what we would consider a modern daybed mattress and bedding was not the same as it was present at that time. In fact, you are not even likely to see this type of furniture within the bedroom at all. They were often placed in a fainting room, a room usually off the parlor or in the main area of the home, where a woman could go to recover from fainting spells usually caused by overheating or a shortness of breath due to the tight fitting corsets she wore.
With the introduction of daybed covers which are similar to a bedskirt but fitted to mattress, what once was a piece of furniture that was hidden away in a spare room covered with last year`s Christmas wrapping paper has become the focal point of many rooms.
Daybeds may also incorporate a trundle unit as well. Trundle units allow for an extra mattress to be stored underneath, to be pulled out for extra sleeping space when needed. You can choose a pop-up trundle unit, where the extra mattress can be rolled and elevated to the same height of the daybed, converting it into a king-sized sleeping area. The other option for trundle units is a pull-out, where the extra mattress is rolled out on wheels or a glider. However, these do not elevate to the daybeds height, forcing you to sleep much lower to the ground.
