Everyone has a wish list for their dream home filled with “must-have” items. In this series, I’ll fill you in on my own “must-have” items – and hopefully show you that in some cases they’re more attainable than you think! - Gabrielle, Savvy Home

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?

Widely used in New England style dining rooms, the Windsor chair actually originates from the Windsor castle in 18th-century England, where it was used as a garden chair. It was widely popularized in England and America shortly after, for both outdoor and indoor use, which explains its popularity in traditional country style American homes. Today the windsor chair comes in all styles, colors and shapes from traditional to modern. Bow-backs, low-backs, fan-backs, wheel-backs and brace-backs are the most common. What type of windsor chair would you choose?
