Daybeds- a solution!! Below is before pillows & roll were added.
The daybed is the ideal solution for that small home office/guest room.

During the day you want it be a sofa but when guests come! Voila-

The mattress (a standard twin)is covered in a red fabric which twin sheets cover for that over night guest-but during the day how about a quilted roll (any fabric will do-I like them quilted) it acts as pillows at each end, keeps mattress clean, a coverlet to get under when chilly, great idea don't you think?
above you see a close up of the quilted roll and pillows (European Squares) I designed for the daybed-the pillows are stripped on one side and red (mattress fabric) on reverse.

 Iron daybed (twin mattress) covered in Sunbrella with a stripped roll(in an outdoor room I designed)
Daybeds are my answer to any area where you might want a sofa(sitting) that becomes a  bed for your sleepy guest!- or maybe just you taking twenty winks(a nap)

As a designer, I am always looking for new ways to make areas have dual functions.
Tell me about your office/guest room or any room ideas you may have?

Have a fantastic weekend!
