Daybeds--Adding Extra Sleep Space

11/12/2010 2:25:00 PM

Could your cabin use an extra bed or two? It seems a fact of mountain living, especially when it comes to vacation homes, the more beds, the better the vacation. Family reunions, ski holidays, summer camp...large groups getting together to share the fun.

Daybeds are just what they sound like. By night they serve as a comfortable twin size bed, but by day they double as sofa-style seating. They are a practical way to tuck a bed into living rooms, sun rooms, dens, libraries and even wider hallways.

Pinecone finials...perfect for a cabin. This bed is from Farmhouse.

Millcreek makes this charming painted and carved daybed. Many daybeds can be ordered with an optional trundle which can be pulled out at bedtime to sleep an extra person.

This handsome daybed is from Restoration Hardware. I love the rustic texture of wicker in mountain houses.

Why not do an antique? Above an old Stickley daybed.

Finally, my all-time favorite daybed, the Jolliette from Woodland.
