I remember when I studied abroad in Paris and toured the palace of Versailles. While everything was so beautiful and glamorous, something stood out to me among all of the glitz – all of the beds were day beds. Because I was so fascinated by this, I did some extra research and found that the Kings and Queens would sleep sitting upright, and thus they had no need for long beds.
While I am definitely one for sprawling out and getting super cozy in bed, there still is something so magical and regal about having a day bed. These pictures just about sum up that quality.
