Even though it's been several years since I designed that daybed (above) for a fictional teenage girl for my ASID Showhouse room, I'm still regularly asked...
"How'd you make it?"
That particular daybed became really popular the day Apartment Therapy devoted an entire article to it. When they published it, I started getting emails asking where it could be purchased or for instructions on how to make one. Houzz.com asked to publish the info and it's gotten a lot of repins on Pinterest as well.
Needless to say, that daybed — the one I call "The Phoebe Daybed" — has become quite popular.
So popular, in fact, that clients began asking me to use it as inspiration for some of the custom daybeds I have produced for them.
Just after the showhouse, I re-imagined it for a little girl's room:
And even more recently: For a young man who has a long, narrow room. It fits perfectly in the corner. ;-)
The best part of his daybed: It gets rid of that awkward bit of space between the wall and bed that always manages to be wasted. Why waste 18” of space back there when you don’t need to?
Need a "Phoebe daybed" designed for someone in your home? Well...
