Description This gorgeous daybed with stained beech legs was inspired by classic Danish furniture design and simplicity. ‘Danish Modern’ is a recognized term around the world, standing for the characteristic style of Danish design created during the 20th century. Pieces from the mid-century era, like this daybed, are characterized by clarity in design and extremely high-quality craftsmanship and choice of materials.

The streamlined solid wood frame of this model features a robust, fully upholstered top, and sturdy beech legs. From the minimalistic design to the focus on the wood, this daybed has the characteristics of “honest” design that has been a core concept among Scandinavian furniture designers and makers. The sleek look is the result of the clean lines, functional design and expert craftsmanship. Furthermore, in the absence of ornamentation, the luxurious upholstery stays in focus, utilizing the sheepskin’s texture to break the straight lines visually. If there is a single common denominator for Danish Modern, it is not so much the design or form as the quality of the execution, the woodwork and the upholstery. This daybed excels in these areas, bringing modernism and quality to any space.

Denmark has a long history of furniture-making. Through the 19th century, the country also had a very strong tradition of cabinetmaking, or producing traditional furniture by hand. In the early 20th century, these cabinetmaking traditions began to merge with modern forces like industrialization. This daybed however, is a handmade piece that remains quite rare.

In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Small scratches and marks on the wood.
