127 LOVES Daybeds to lounge on.
When it’s relaxation time nothing surpasses a daybed for luxury and versatility. 1 GUEST DESIGN EXPERT Beatrix Rowe (pictured with Belle interior design editor Lucy McCabe) says “Even in our hectic lifestyles just the sight of a daybed calls you to lie down, get horizontal and relax. A daybed is a versatile piece that can be used in the centre of a room, against a wall or even in front of a window as a window seat. One of my favourite furniture pieces, The PP MObler ‘PP225 Flag Halyard’ chair (right) isn’t what you typically think of as a daybed but it has the functionality to recline.”
