I’m so torn. We really need a seating option for my office/sunroom, and I’ve been price stalking this West Elm daybed for quite some time. It NEVER goes on sale.
Then I found this option from World Market. It doesn’t have the clean lines that I love in the West Elm daybed, but it would work well in the room.
The problem is, I’m really trying to buy things that I LOVE for the house. When I buy things on sale that I only like, I tend to want to get rid of them and upgrade after a year or two. So I’m torn. Maybe a side-by-side comparison will help:
West Elm Overlapping Squares Daybed:
$559 for the daybed, mattress cover, and two bolsters
$250 for the twin mattress from overstock.com (rather than pay $400 for the one from West Elm)
Total = $809
World Market Studio Day Sofa
$349 for the frame, cover, and pillows (on sale from $399)
$100 for slip covers (not on the website currently, but all the reviews say they are needed)
Total = $449
