Good Questions: Any recommendations for a daybed?

Kimber sent us an email: “Our son was born 4 months ago and we have yet to outfit his nursery because “his room” is also the guest room and, so far, we’ve had an unending series of guests. But now that the onslaught of visitors has passed, it’s time to decorate the nursery!

First order of business: replace the old full-size bed with a clean-lined daybed, sofabed, or perhaps even a futon. In the future, we do want to be able to offer guests a full-size bed to sleep on, but we don’t want to have such a big bed taking up all the space in our son’s rather small room. Any good suggestions under $800?

We like the Lubi daybed from CB2 and it’s in our price-range; trouble is, for the bed to accomdate two sleepers, you’ve got to unfold the mattress onto the floor, which isn’t very grandparent friendly.”

Daybeds- always a popular topic. A few of our picks:

• They’re having a sale on this Futon Lounger over at West Elm. Not sure if it’s what you’re looking for, but at least it appears comfortable.

• It’s in a lower price range, but you may also want to consider the Lillberg over at Ikea.

• Room and Board also has a few good options- one of the simpler ones: The Parsons Twin Daybed .
