We were asked by the owners of this Edinburgh Georgian townhouse to design a daybed and window seat for a room that had to double as a children’s playroom and guest bedroom.
We devised a Douglas Fir daybed which nestles in an alcove clad in Douglas Fir veneer with recessed spotlights and features drawers below and bookshelves above. As much negative space around the alcove was utilized as possible by creating high- level storage behind doors on touch latches and a full height walk in wardrobe space. Alongside this, and fitted into a narrow bay window, we created a window seat with pivoting cupboard doors.
The daybed mattress and window seat cushion were both upholstered in Kvadrat’s classic Hallingdal 65 fabric.
