The first daybeds were developed in the late 1600s as headrests started to form longer chairbacks; perhaps originating from the Greeks; the Romans borrowed the designs and elaborated.  Daybeds, Chaise Lounges, or Sleeper Chairs were found in “fainting rooms” during the Victorian era. Specifically used for the results of tightly drawn corsets; ladies would try to catch their breath by resting on these luscious daybeds found in the side/spare rooms from the great gathering/living rooms. 

These ancient daybeds were often made of stone or marble and festooned with pillows and cloth. The Legs were highly decorated and turned from bone or stone. Fabrics were luxurious and expensive. They were not flexible in movement, however, did add to a room’s versatility for seating and resting or lounging. 

Daybeds continued to be used in spaces of congregation for lounging and luxury throughout the centuries, offering versatility to large and small living spaces over the years of its ever-changing architecture and design. 

The modern daybed has become more basic in design and more versatile in its function– frames are perhaps more simply made of wood or metal or both, allowing for ease of movement. Their designs can range from simple, modern, contemporary, to ornate and can fit a wide range of budgets. Ready to fit any room for its multi-purpose use to any space.
