On hot summer days and sultry evenings, the best thing to do is lounge and relax with a good glass of wine. The newest trend, day beds, are just the thing for that. Day beds are a crossover between a bed, a chaise longue, and sofa. They are ideally used to take a nap in a common room other than the bed room. Day beds can make a great addition to any space. There are many contemporary designs out there, in all price ranges. Even IKEA has some nice day beds available. If you have a design day bed, keep it clean and simple and let it be the focal point in your room. Otherwise, you can spruce it up with fluffy accent pillows and a colorful throw to make it more inviting. Happy napping!
