I’ve been super excited to get this retro daybed back from our upholsterer – it really is such fun watching pieces of furniture be brought back to life! When we found it this couch had definitely seen better days – the springs had gone, the upholstery looked like it was about five shades darker than it should have been, and the wood was lacklustre. Now we have a smart, relatively contemporary looking daybed, with a textured grey upholstery pulled nice and tight over new springs, with freshly varnished wood. We’ve even given the wood underneath the side cushion some love – while before it definitely needed to be hidden away, now I think it could easily double as drinks tray should the mood take you! And once you’re done with your cocktails just replace the cushion, flip the back support up, and hey presto you have yourself a decent sized bed to stretch out on! Just fabulous!
The perfect piece for a small apartment – your daybed means that you don’t have to stick pillows down the middle of your bed when you have a house guest to stay!
Note: On the whole this settee has been very well upholstered, but when you flip the back support up the staples are visible underneath. Also the wood that supports the backrest is a bit chunkier and more roughly finished than you would expect it to be (see photos)
Dimensions: 2.19m wide x 75cm deep x 84cm tall
