ODE TO DAYBEDS
Posted on October 15 2016
Daybeds are having a moment in our books. Fitting perfectly with the Plyroom ethos, daybeds are versatile, simple and beautiful. We love the thought of curling up on one, beneath sunshine streaming in from a window, book in hand, to rest and relax.
If you’ve been wondering how to fill an empty space, a daybed might just be the perfect option. Daybeds are particularly wonderful at adding structure and division to a large open space (think warehouses, studios, open living areas) without losing the sense of expansive space and air.
From classic offerings in leather, to modern options in canvas, add a beautiful throw and a pillow or two and you’re set. Here’s a few of our favourite stylish and functional daybeds and where to find them.
This beautiful Stockholm apartment is the home of stylist Joanna Laven. The leather daybed works perfectly beneath the large artwork and breathes life into the corner of a room. Photo by Idha Lindhag, via Design Milk.
This simple canvas option by designer Ole Gjerløv-Khudsen (left) would look perfect with a soft and textured throw. Find it at The Line here.

We love the soft and shimmering colour palette of this beautiful Rome apartment by Quincoces-dragò & partners. While the Track Bench by David Lopez Quincoces may not technically be a daybed, we think it still qualifies. Photo Quincoces-dragò & partners.
One of our favourite apartments, this is the home of fashion designers Momo Suzuki and Alexander Yamaguchi (left). We also love their approach – ‘simple and functional’. The daybed is by A. R. Cordemeir. Photo via Remodelista.
Made from a simple oak frame and upholstered wool or leather seat, we love the Align Daybed from Menu, designed by Anita Johansen (right). With a soft pillow, it’s perfect for daytime reading. Find it here.
