The company makes chairs, desks, tables, lighting fixtures, storage options, beds, and every other type of home and office furnishing you can think of. Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Paramount Daybed
by Blu Dot

At A Glance:
The Paramount Daybed is the kind of furniture that you'd expect to see Marilyn Monroe lounging on, book in her hand with her eyes dreamily half-shut. Mid-century style, modern materials, and Blu Dot's build quality combine to make this daybed a find worth featuring. Choose left or right-arm model; all cushions are loose.

Originally launched in 2008, new production features better foam, solid maple kiln dried frame, double doweled frame and better US milled fabrics. 1" deeper to account for less lumpy back pillows. Sofa seat cushions can be flipped to change to a non-tufted look (doesn’t work with sectionals) . Comfortable enough to sleep on in lieu of a sleeper sofa.

What's To Like:
Modern lines, unique style. The Paramount Daybed isn't what you'd normally expect to see in someone's living room, since it doesn't fit the profile of a typical sofa. Not to worry - it's a striking piece with crisp straight lines and tufted seat cushion that accent its partial back.

What's Not to Like:
It's not very useful as a main sofa, since half the back is devoid of backrest, and one side won't have an armrest. It's better suited as a daybed (well, yeah) or as part of the Paramount Sectional.

The Bottom Line:
This daybed is perfect to add style, versatility, and comfort to any room. With a small footprint, the Blu Dot Paramount Daybed can make an excellent complementary sofa or "nap central." Perfect for watching movies or reading.
