Day Bed is Perfect Ultra-Versatile Addition to Any Child's Room - Cube Breaker The Orwell day bed by designer Goula Figuera perfectly blends a sofa, bed, and cabin fort, making it the perfect addition to any child — or simply a child at heart’s — room.

With heavy quilted curtains which fold down easily insulating from sound and light, the bed makes for the perfect napping spot — or fort — when one needs to get away from it all. When privacy is not desired, the curtains easily remove, setting up quickly for a group sleepover on the floor. Source: Goula Figuera via Design Boom If you liked this, you’d also like:
