American Modern Daybed
The American Modern Daybed (2008) is inpired by George Nelsonâ€™s iconic design for a daybed that he created in 1948. Nelsonâ€™s work â€“ whether designing clocks, lamps or furniture â€“ expressed his desire to â€œdo much more with much less.â€ Still true to Nelsonâ€™s straightforward design aesthetic, weâ€™ve made updates to take advantage of todayâ€™s manufacturing techniques. This Daybed stands on a simple maple frame, which is crafted out of solid FSC-certified wood. A precursor to the modern platform bed, it is made with slats that permit air circulation through the cushion, and the back cushions are removable to create a larger surface for sleeping. Made with removable covers for cleaning, the cushions are upholstered in fabric by Maharam, a family-run business thatâ€™s been producing textiles for more than 100 years.
