  1. Daybed

    Daybeds are used as beds as well as for lounging, reclining and seating in common rooms. Their frames can be made out of wood, metal or a combination of wood and metal. They are a cross between chaise longue, couch and a bed. Daybeds typically feature a back and sides and come in Twin Size. Often daybeds will also feature a trundle to expand sleeping capacity. Many of today's daybeds employ a linkspring as the support system for the mattress. The linkspring is a rectangular metal frame with cross supports. A wire or polyester / nylon mesh held in place by a network of springs lays across the top of the linkspring. The linkspring design provides support and creates clearance underneath a daybed for storage. A recent development in infant beds is a bed that converts into a daybed by the removal of one side, ensuring the furniture is useful for more than a couple of years.
