Daybeds, have you every heard of these things? I have heard people use the term 'daybed' in the past and I don't know what that means. The other day I was flipping around the channels and this decorating show was talking about 'daybeds' - they showed a low, narrow bed, or bunk. I still don't get this. What makes it a day bed? Do you sleep on it during the day, and then use you regular bed at night? Is this like a special bed for night shift workers - they work all night and then they come home and sleep in their day bed? I wonder how they invented the day bed, maybe one somebody stayed out really late one night and came home in the morning and thought "Oh no, what I am gonna do!? I'm tired, but it's daytime, I can't sleep in my regular, large, comfortable bed. If only there was a small, narrow, uncomfortable bed designed specifically for sleeping during the day"

Okay here goes....

A day bed is a very European thing to have (and USA) Yes it is a bed, but designed to look elegant so that it can almost be mistaken as a comfortable looking sofa, and blend in with the rest of your furniture so that you don't look like you have an actual bed in the middle of your living room. It's a great place to have a nap, without actually having to 'retire' to the bedroom. And is great for that un expected guest. It's called a day bed, because it's not commonly placed in a 'bedroom' so it's used more liberally - other than at 'bedtime'
