A daybed frame is generally raised off the ground, providing plenty of room for storage underneath. This can consist of built-in drawers or open space to stash holiday decorations, as well as a spot for a trundle bed that pulls out to create an extra sleeping spot. If you’re looking for a daybed that can sleep two people, find one that has the trundle included so you don’t have to purchase one separately. For added comfort and a piece that feels more sofa-like, try an upholstered daybed. If you really want some extra room to spread out, look for a full-size daybed, as most come in twin sizes to fit smaller spaces.
What’s the difference between a daybed and a futon
Although they are both very similar in the purposes they serve, there are some major differences between the two that every buyer should know:
Futons: Think of futons as sofas that double as beds. Because their primary function is seating, they need to be a bit firmer to account for more frequent use by multiple people. A futon needs to fold up and down to switch functions, so often the overall sleeping area will be slightly larger than that of a daybed.
The above Gustav SofaBed is an example of stylish Sofa, which can be easily changed into a comfortable double bed, this is a Futon.
Daybeds: Think of daybeds as beds that double as sofas. Their primary function is for sleeping, so they will feature an actual twin-sized (or larger) mattress instead of cushions, and will typically be on the softer side. Daybeds do not fold up and down, so the seating depth will be greater than a futon, but can be easily adjusted by adding pillows as backrests.
The above is the Benchy Day Bed. Which can be used during the day to sit more people in your living-room or office.
What can we learn from the Ibiza lifestyle?
In Ibiza of course, the lifestyle is being outside most of the time, but in winter or evening it’s also nice to be able to enjoy it inside. It’s really nice to have an outdoor living room or a indoor garden, a green interior. The relation between in- and outside can be used freely! In a way similar to the Hong Kong climate..
An easy and effective way is to incorporate plants. They have a way of adding some dimensions into a room, bring colour and texture, but most important making any space feel lively and bright.
A large plant can sit in their pot, and be the statement piece whilst other plants can be hoisted up slightly on a small pedestal to add height to a room. They can also create contrast and are great when you have a white canvas, it adds a pop that draws the eye. It’s easy to create your own unique little greenhouse with mixing some of your favourite ones.

A Hong Kong bachelor pad gets a bold, bright and blue updateHigh-end hotels provide the inspiration for a Sheung Wan bolthole for a student studying overseas. BY OLIVER GILES Interior designers may dream of having a free rein on projects. But as Wesley Liu recently discovered when creating a bachelor pad in Sheung Wan, working without a brief can also be a burden. “There weren’t really any processes of approval,” says Liu, founder of PplusP Designers. “The client just passed the whole project on to me. I didn’t know what he’d think of it.” But the designer need not have worried. “When it was all done,” Liu remembers, laughing, “he came in and was like, ‘Wow!’ It was just like a TV show.” One of the first things Liu did was to knock down a wall between the living room and the kitchen, creating a sleek, open-plan space for entertaining. One request from the client, who likes to cook, was that he wanted to be able to serve his friends food and drink easily. “So an open-bar concept was best,” says Liu. Parties can also spill outdoors because the room opens to a balcony with sweeping city views of Poho (the area around Po Hing Fong) and Sai Ying Pun. Living room The sofa (HK$11,000) and single-leg coffee table (HK$1,200) came from SofaSale. The rug and the stool-like coffee table were gifts from designer Wesley Liu. The dining table (HK$9,000), dining chairs (HK$1,200 each) and bench (HK$5,800) The full story you find on the SCMP Post Magazine website
Enter the world of minimalistic, simple Scandinavian designer furniture. Scandinavia is known for its beautiful environment, endless forests, lakes, beaches and beautiful people. No wonder Scandinavian furniture designers are using natural element in their furniture designs. It will give character to the furniture. Given our immense density and tight floor spaces in Hong Kong, it does make sense to bring in tranquil Scandinavian elements into our interior design plan. We have created a short introduction photo of our latest range of Scandinavian designer furniture. On the sofa, we used natural fabrics in soft, calm colour tone. The sofas are being matched with easy to use, coffee tables, finished with some retro style art on the wall and easy going carpets.

The local economy is facing a challenging time, at the moment, given the economic uncertainties many large corporations focus on cost cutting and restructuring. In general this means 2 things for the staff of those companies: 1) Stress due to career uncertainties. 2) Long working days, since the same amount of work needs to be done with less staff. In order to service in this kind of harsh business climate, it is off utmost importance to keep the mind fresh and recharged day in, day out.

At SofaSale we are sincerely concerned about the lack of alternative solutions brought forward for reduction of the annual waste production of its local residents in combination by the limited waste disposal or treatment facilities. With our Recycle your Blues campaign we would like to create awareness of the waste problem we are facing in Hong Kong. We would like to educate Hong Kong residents, that some items in our daily waste stream can be valuable and deserve a second life. In many countries Denim jeans are being recycled, shredded and re-used for home isolation, this kind of initiatives do not exist in Hong Kong.
We think, this needs to change, with your help we can make a difference.
On a daily basis we are working on furniture designs and furniture production. We see creative opportunities using recycled jeans in our furniture designs. We started by creating unique Sofa furniture pieces from recycled jeans, and we are quite excited about using recycled materials in our designs. We hope by bringing this Blue furniture products to the Hong Kong market we can make a statement towards different government organisations and hope to start up a constructive and open dialogue on how to the solve the Waste Crisis in Hong Kong. We believe we need to do this together to ensure both the recycling rate is going up and the waste treatment will become green and sustainable.
We would like to encourage all readers to share their ideas and if you like our idea of recycling jeans furniture, do check your wardrobe and see what jeans are worn down and no longer useful. Please do not throw them away, instead please send them to SofaSale. We will use your jeans and hopefully transfer them into unique Blue furniture!
Chesterfield sofas are the large couches with rolled arms the same height as the back, with deep button tufting and nail-head trim. The lore around the Chesterfield is that it was invented when the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Stanhope (1694-1773), commissioned a similar sofa in the mid-18th century.
The Chesterfield sofa - one of the oldest and most desirable sofa styles - is seeing a very well-deserved resurgence in popularity. As "the king of sofas," the Chesterfield bring a huge amount of style and comfort to any home or business.
Chesterfields make an impact - that's why we love them so much. But without balance, their massive forms and attention-grabbing tufts can steal all the attention from the room surrounding them. To balance out a Chesterfield, consider bring in some clean-lined modern elements and/or rustic forms. Integrate furniture and artwork with strong colours, and experiment with a fun area rug.
CHESTERFIELDS MAKE AN IMPACT - THAT'S WHY WE LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
One of the best positions for a Chesterfield is floating in the middle of a room. The distinctive rolled back rest looks great from behind (unlike the backs of many sofas) and the low profile prevents the sofa from becoming a visual barrier in the room. This is perfect for creating a conversation area within a larger space. Your Chesterfield won't block the view across the room, but will still define the space-within-a-space. This unique ability to float while adding interest is why Chesterfield sofas are so popular in the lobbies of luxurious boutique hotels and sophisticated lounges.
Placing a Chesterfield in a more modern environment may mean opting for brighter, bolder colours like orange, light blue, or bright red, or lighter neutrals like mid-tone grey, white, or linen. These lighter colours prevent the visual mass of the Chesterfield from overwhelming the room with too dark of a colour - a good option for rooms without dark walls.
Chesterfields are typically shown with ornately-styled legs. Turned legs are the most common, followed by a variety of bun feet, some fluted, some with casters. Square tapers make occasional appearances for a more modern look. Chesterfield legs vary from around four inches tall to about six inches. We offer our Chesterfield sofas and armchairs with a variety of leg styles and colours. In addition to standard wood stain colours, we can match a specific stain or even paint the legs.
