An intriguing French innovation, the day bed could be placed at the center of any room and serve during the day as a comfortable sofa or canape, and provide sleeping accommodations at night if the need arose. This example, rendered from exotic and highly desirable imported mahogany, features Empire motifs with decided ancient Egyptian style origins. In this case, the ornamentation is not cast bronze, but hand-carved and gilded, making this a truly exceptional find!
