Hans Wegner daybed, a Danish design classic, manufactured by Getama Gedsted is versatile and typical of Scandinavian multi-functional furniture design. This piece serves as a comfy daybed for watching TV or just hanging out on, but also converts into a bed for guests or just for taking a nap. The backrest simply moves up and out of the way to reveal more space for lying down. And to keep things organized, you can store extra bedding or pillows behind the backrest.
Model Name: GE-258
Materials: Teak and Fabric wool
