While there is no longer a need for fainting rooms, there are still those who will include a wood or metal day bed in a den, sunroom or enclosed back porch so that thee is a place to rest when the need arises. You may even find them in the rest rooms of higher class establishments for women who may become faint because of overexertion, pregnancy or low blood sugar. In some states there is a law requiring a chair or sofa in the ladies room, so the day bed is a perfect addition for that purpose. While this may seem minor, it is a welcome comfort for those who need it.
Daybeds were a common sight during the Victorian Era. Like their name signifies, they are used for sleeping during the day, although during the Victorian Era they were usually located in a room called a fainting room where women would go to recover from a near fainting spell that was caused by the lack of proper breathing while wearing a tight corset. Of course daybeds have evolved from their meager beginning and their usage during the Victorian Era to a piece of furniture that can double into an extra bed. Even iron daybeds have a design to fit into the décor of any room in which they are located and blend in with the other furniture.
