No piece of furniture makes a design statement quite like a daybed. Regardless of style, something about the silhouette and general function (i.e. napping in the afternoon, reading while drinking wine and eating cheese) feels inherently romantic and perfectly dramatic.

Styled in front of an antique fireplace or oversized window overlooking the garden, daybeds can lend a chic, Victorian touch to any space. While daybeds will never go out of style, we predict a heightened resurgence thanks to traditional design’s ongoing comeback.

Love the look as much as we do? Keep scrolling to shop our edit of the 15 best daybeds on the market right now, from custom options to designer selects and beyond.
