The American Modern Daybed (2008) is inpired by George Nelson’s iconic design for a daybed that he created in 1948. Nelson’s work – whether designing clocks, lamps or furniture – expressed his desire to “do much more with much less.” Still true to Nelson’s straightforward design aesthetic, we’ve made updates to take advantage of today’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 that’s been producing textiles for more than 100 years.
