Back in the 1950s when I was born, we didn’t have mattresses or cushions on our day beds. We were happy to have the steel frame so we weren’t on the ground. And if we needed both beds, we had to hold one up to make it the same height. None of those fancy spring releases to push, I can tell you! We also knew the difference between a day bed and a trundle. Now get that contraption off my lawn!
This is a steel day bed from the 1950’s. It is in great condition. The bottom part rolls out and has a spring release that pops the frame up to the same height as the other non moving part. So you can have two beds or we just put a foam pillow top over them to make a queen size bed. Measurements are 75″ x 30 1/2″. Height is 16″.
I would think for something so old, for that much money, you should expect to get a mattress or something. Are those measurements for the one bed or the double bed? I can’t math today.
