Daybeds are one of those multifunctional and aesthetically pleasing pieces of furniture that will never date or go out of fashion. A cross between a sofa and a chaise lounge, daybeds have the capacity to be used as a both a seating and sleeping option (in the event last minute guests show up!). Daybeds can be found inside and outside the home, of course, with the material finishes being made to suit the environment in which they are placed. They also come in a myriad of different styles, from ultra modern to understated and classic, the range of options is seemingly endless. The only thing we, as homeowners, need to work out is where to put it! So, let's take a look at some of the most stunning examples of daybeds on the homify platform; and if you weren't totally convinced in the beginning, we hope to have converted you to the idea of placing a daybed in a bedroom or living room.

We begin this ideabook with a more classic approach; a daybed in a subtle tone of grey within a serene and calm living room setting. What a wonderful addition to this light filled and open space, and of course, what a great choice of positioning; directly in front of the expanse of glass windows and doors. Here, the occupants can relax and recline, perhaps read a book or just gaze outside and forget about all their worries and troubles for a moment or two. After all, the purpose of a daybed, other than to add a beautiful touch to a room, is for us to kick back and unwind. 

Modern marvels

For those who like their furniture to double up as art, a statement daybed such as this example from LAURENTMULLER is a must-have! Titled Waves,  the project is as versatile as it is comfortable.  Available in a variation of four different colours, you can choose from differing tones of yellow, red, green or blue (as pictured) depending on your interior scheme. Attention to detail of is utmost importance, with the daybed coming with two bolsters and double sided, mirror polished steel feet.

Functional aesthetics

Decorum

Decorum brings us this Nordic inspired daybed called The Norman Daybed. Using understated and unadulterated finishes, the highlight of this bed is not only the sleek form, but also the quality of material textures used. The solid Oak veneer, in conjunction with the elegant blue upholstery, make this piece a perfect fit for those who hold stylish, modern design in high regard. 

Nordic minimalism

The Danish are known for stunning minimalist industrial design, so it comes as no surprise that we find this wonderful daybed that embodies a stripped back, yet elegant design. The mid-century period formed the height of Danish success in industrial design, with designers like Hans J. Wegner taking the world by storm with functional and innovative pieces. This particular piece from Forest London, with its refined and simple form, would suit a myriad of different homes and interior schemes. The plain grey top, together with the elegant teak frame, can be dressed up with pillows or throws, or depending on your taste, left as a simplistic, chic statement piece for your home.

Outdoor oasis

To finish, we leave this ideabook with a modern take on a stylish outdoor daybed. Titled the Peach daybed, the name of course, comes from the peach-like shape and form of the structure. Made from handwoven rattan, this piece would look wonderful perched upon a poolside deck or even tucked away into a luscious green garden. Available in a wide range of colours and styles, you can find a daybed that embodies the notion of an outdoor oasis for your own home.
