While we’re pretty partial to the idea of stealing a wink or two during the day that’s not the only reason that daybeds have a special place in our hearts. These versatile pieces transcend their lazy reputations by doing double duty as both seats and beds and are especially useful in urban settings where space is at a premium.
The polished Polizi bench is both a beautiful centerpiece to display at the foot of your bed and a functional spot to throw your blazer when you get home from work. The x-shaped legs keep the design light and airy while the tufted cushion would be a comfy place to curl up with a good book.
Like something right out of the pages of a storybook this handsome Hansel and Gretel bed does double-duty as both a playhouse and sleepspace. The Gingerbread Cottage Bed‘s intricate hand-painted details can even be customized to match your current decor.
Part of Rossetto’s ultra-modern Nightfly collection this nearly blinding nightstand features two drawers and white-on-white faux alligator accents made of eco-leather processed using natural dyes and extracts.
While most kids’ bedrooms seem to embrace the clean contemporary look try a fun comfy twist this winter by giving the modern rustic style a shot. It is also a perfect way to replicate the fun memories of your holiday trip to the woodsy winter cabin and it creates a dreamy natural escape for your child.
Handsome and sleek by day and comfortable and restful by night the Eileen Grey chaise is the best of both worlds. The no-frills stainless steel frame is airy enough to work in a small space and the repositionable cushion serves as both an armrest and a pillow.
All you need are a few gorgeous throw pillows in bright red or cozy bedding in elegant scarlet along with a plush rug or a cool vase on the bedside table in a matching hue. As a rule the more neutral the backdrop the more visual impact your red accents will make.
