I asked sixtyten from Awesims if she would consider making this daybed for TS3 (she loves midcentury stuff) and she kindly obliged. You can get the TS3 version HERE. I then asked if she would mind me porting the mesh to TS2 and she said go ahead - so here it is.
This is a sofa, not a bed, rather like the original daybeds were a place to take an afternoon nap, rather than being a real bed. Your sims can sit and lounge and nap on this daybed.
Also, if there is anyone out there who would like to make some recolours for this that would be awesome indeed....
EDIT deestar over at sailfinsims has done 15 recolours of this item - link below. There are also 16 recolours here on Leefish - see link below too.

Lol no - there is a Maxis dining chair (can't remember which one) that is over 2000 polys.... and that is not as fabulous as this. I have to admit, give me gorgeous high poly everytime over low poly that looks it.
