7 Favorites: The Enduring Appeal of the Donald Judd Daybed

May 10, 2018

We’re longtime fans of Donald Judd; especially his minimal daybed, which we’ve been spotting lately in interiors—DIY versions included.

Original daybeds by Donald Judd can go for as much as $20,000 at auction; new ones, made by the artist’s longtime craftsman, California-based Jeff Jamieson, can also be ordered from Judd Furniture.

7 Favorites The Enduring Appeal of the Donald Judd Daybed Last week we dropped in on Malgorzata Bany and Tycjan Knut’s north London rental (see \1,000 Square Feet on a Budget: An Artist’s Loft in North London) and admired their DIY Judd esque daybed. The sofa is made from the base of a sofa bed—something generic bought by Tycjan’s sister online. Malgorzata ordered foam cut to size and covered it with heavy duck cotton she sewed herself. The Donald Judd–inspired box is made from birch ply coated with Osmo Snow White Wood Wax Finish.
