Do daybeds have any point, other than looking girly? Are you supposed to take your naps on the daybed, and sleep at night in your, uh, nightbed

"Daybed" should only be used to describe the only true daybed ever made -- the Barcelona. What you have pictured above is so much a bastardization of taste and design that it deserves a more colorful and descriptive name I shall spare typing here.
