Description from Dwell Retail
The American Modern Daybed (2008) is inpired by George Nelsons iconic design for a daybed that he created in 1948. Nelsons work whether designing clocks, lamps or furniture expressed his desire to do much more with much less.” Still true to Nelsons straightforward design aesthetic, weve made updates to take advantage of todays 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 thats been producing textiles for more than 100 years.
