Daybeds serve the dual purpose of sleeping and sitting. Thus, the furniture is structured such that the cushions can be used for both sitting and sleeping postures.


Why do you need daybeds?

Daybeds have part of the modern homes due to the elegance it offers. But, history shows that daybeds have been used by Egyptian, Roman, Greek, & Chinese civilizations. Not many are aware of it.

  • occupies lesser space;
  • affordable;
  • can be used for relaxing in the garden; and
  • aesthetic appeal to the yard.
