Not surprisingly, the most important current styles in daybeds reflect the trends found in regular beds:
-- Mixed media, particularly wood combined with metal.
-- Dramatic frames -- a particular challenge for manufacturers because they must work with a standard twin-bed size (39 by 72 inches) to create an oversized "sofa."
-- Mission furniture styling.
-- French country.
-- An emphasis on finishes, such as distressing, highlighting and glazing (a sheer color that allows the base coat to show through).
