While most people fluctuate between wanting to have a futon couch or a luxurious lounge chair, we are the ones to choose daybeds always. A daybed perfectly melds the two into one sophisticated piece of furniture – and that too, in style!
Perfect for relaxing, daybeds are gradually becoming popular with the millennials. Be it for a catnap in the afternoon, using it as a reclined workspace or an overnight bed for a surprise guest, daybeds are more than just functional.
While picking out one for own house, we found these 10 daybeds that truly define ‘relaxing in style’ and will have you not wanting to leave them even for a minute!
1. This sinfully comfortable daybed
Daybeds are just meant to be ‘comfy’ and nothing defines comfortable than this cushiony one. You don’t even need to drag in another piece of furniture for it. Simply stack two to three mattresses in colors and patterns you like, bring in some cushions and get yourself a soft throw as well – your perfect catnap corner is ready!

2. This absolutely functional and stylish daybed
Who says a daybed is only for catnaps and serving as overnight beds for guests? If you choose the design strategically, you can use the space below them for storage as well. In this bed, there are a few shelves below the main seating. You could fit in drawers here or baskets, based on what you want to stow away from clear sight!

4. This comforting swing daybed
Who says daybeds can only be placed on the floors of bedrooms? Take them out and turn it into your favourite childhood dream of having a swing! We can already imagine ourselves enjoying a quiet evening on swing, without feeling all too uncomfortable.

If you like, you could absolutely go minimal with the design you pick, replicating the typical swing.
