Hans Wegner, probably best known for his iconic wishbone chair, is the undisputed mid-century master of Danish chair design. He was discovered by Americans thanks to his classic Wegner chair (or elbow chair) in the 1950′s. Today, though his designs are still sold in specialty design stores around the world, they have also been adapted, copied and served as inspirations for many mid-century style dining chairs. That’s lucky for those of us who can’t fork out 500-1000$ on a single dining chair. I especially love wishbone chairs used in breakfast nooks in light finishes. Which Hans Wegner inspired chair would you choose?

If there’s one decor must-have that just screams lazy summer days, it’s the daybed. Place it near a window where the breeze is strong, appoint it with a reading lamp and a small side table, and get ready to kick back and relax… For hours! Whether you’re looking to nap, read a book, catch up on work or just hang out, the daybed is the perfect place to lounge on a sunny afternoon.

The daybed is also the perfect solution if you don’t quite have enough space for two sofas in your living room, or if you want a comfortable seat in your office. Many of them come with hidden trundle beds, making them perfect to hide an extra guest bed in a small space! Which daybed would you choose for your home?
