What is a Daybed?

A daybed is a piece of furniture designed to serve two purposes: sleeping and sitting. While it looks like a sofa with a back and arms, the cushion is actually a mattress made for sleeping. Daybeds are designed to take a twin size mattress (39" x 75"), but they can vary in width and length depending on the shape of the back and arms. Some daybeds are small and simple, while others have a more intricate, stately design. Styles include standard, trundle, sleigh, and canopy daybeds.

Further Information

Beyond the Bedroom

While daybeds are commonly found in guest bedrooms, they can also function well in other rooms of your home. Add a daybed to your home office for an easy seating area that can also accomodate a spontaneous overnight guest. If you have a smaller home or apartment, a daybed works great in the living room as well.

Daybed for Two

Order the optional trundle, and double the daybed's sleeping surface, offering your guests a sleep space that almost equals the size of a king mattress. The pop-up mattress and support hide under your daybed when not in use. When you want extra sleeping surface, simply "pop" the trundle out and raise it to create a larger sleeping surface. The daybed trundle accepts up to an 8" daybed mattress.

Why a Polytop?

The premium polytop is included with your daybed purchase, supporting your mattress without the need for a box spring. The Polytop lasts ten times longer than regular link springs, and it's more comfortable, too. Our free polytop upgrade is available on nearly every model you'll find at DaybedDeals.com.
