This daybed has been an amazing addition to my photography studio room that doubles as our guest room when we have family and friends visit. This bed was a bit on the pricey side but now that I have had for awhile it has proven to be more than worth the price tag. It is a beautiful wood frame with solid wood slats for stability and strength. The mattress was not included but not too big a deal. It can be used as a couch or twin bed depending on your preference. I use it as a sitting area for my photography clients during my sessions and then as a bed for guests. I have used it myself as a place to relax after long newborn sessions and it is very relaxing and comfortable allowing for plenty of room. This daybed also has two storage drawers built into the bottom, front which is great for extra sheets and some of my most often used photography props. It did take a bit of time for assembly but not very hard with the directions included.
