Sofa-Style Daybeds

sofa-style daybed

Shouldn’t all sofas just automatically be a mattress on the bottom? What a wonderful world that would be.

Over the past few month we’ve used my office as a guest room so often that I’m considering re-naming it. I haven’t worked in there for ages and it’s so much better suited as a guest cottage.

As I’ve thought about bed options (right now we have one of the boy’s old twin beds in there) I came across these daybeds that look like sofas. Upholstered and soft and this one above can even be ordered to hold a queen mattress!

I’ve never been a big daybed fan, but these look more like wide sofas that you want to sleep on. Brilliant!

The one above is from Joss & Main. Wouldn’t two of these facing each other be a comfy alternative to two twin beds? One would be a great idea in a nursery or in an office.

I also love how Annie took a queen mattress, stuffed the back cushions from an Ikea slipcover and used bolster pillows to create a huge queen sofa for their family room. She deserves a Nobel Peace Prize or something! Read all about it here.


  1. LOVE this idea! All of those are gorgeous!

  2. My husband and I have the wooden daybed from World Market in our guest room. We actually watch tv and cuddle there almost every evening! It is the best! I made my own slip cover for the mattress and bought two large body pillows from Target on sale to make a cushy back rest.

    • So, so bummed that this World Market daybed is no longer available! And it had actually decreased in price to $149 when they still had it. Ugh – so perfect!!!

  3. The angel wings in the first picture are amazing!! Do you know where they came from? I would love, love, love to own them.
    Thank you!
    PS: I love your blog.

    • I’m guessing the same place as the bed–Restoration Hardware/ or RH baby? I have some wooden looking ones I love–I found them at Joss & Main


  4. Myquillyn – thank you so much! I am flattered you think it is a good idea and love these beautiful suggestions up above! Can’t wait to see what you end up doing in the office ~

    • Myquillyn’s right! You are a genius I’m going to do this in my office. I already had the queen mattress and was thinking about buying a daybed frame for it, but your idea is going to save me so much money and be more flexible also. (When we have couples come to stay, they’d enjoy the bed more turned so both people can get in an out without crawling over each other) and this way it will be a snap to turn back and forth. Thank you for the idea!

  5. I love all of these! Simply beautiful :-)

  6. Wow ! Beautiful sofa……….

  7. cartierlovejesduas I was basically wanting to know if you ever thought of modifying the layout of your web site? Its very well written; I enjoy what youve got to state. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of content so people can connect to it better. Youve got a great deal of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you can space it out better?

  10. Heya great website! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?
    I have very little knowledge of coding but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off subject but I just had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!
