Sofas have been called by many names, we are familiar with them being called couches, but they have also been called settees, lounges, davenports, or chesterfields. But it does not stop there they also go by other names because of their various styles such as a two-seater, a three-seater, a corner sofa, or perhaps a chaise lounge. A small version of a couch is sometimes called a loveseat, and, as you likely already know, there are sofas that fold out into beds, as well as futons - which are incredibly similar. There are even lounges or elaborate sofas with canopies for privacy or decoration.
The daybed was the most popular and common kind of sofa in the 17th century. Especially into the 19th century the sofa, couch, or lounge bed was often thought of as a ladies lounging seat. However, reverting back further in history, men would often lounge as they ate or relaxed, and the women would stand or sit in chairs. As a matter of fact, it was not until the industrial era that sofas began to appear eventually in the homes of more and more common people. Soon it became so that virtually everyone, singles, couples, and / or whole families, would acquire at least one sofa for their home.
Save yourself from buyer's remorse by getting a clear idea of what you want and need in your living room first.
Of course nowadays we have a traditional sofa that is also a sleeper sofa, or a sectional sofa that is called a sofa sectional sleeper. These categories are further divided. For instance you have the tight back sofa, which has a firm seat and no additional pillows. Then you have the attached pillow back, which has a softer seat and back. The filled pillow is sewn into the back of the sofa, thereby making them permanent in the sofa. Then you have the loose pillows and these come as cushions, which can be unzipped and cleaned.
Your choice of a designer sofa tells so much about your character and style. In fact, your choices in everything are merely extensions of your thought and passion. Your choice of colors, fabrics or designs is a revelation of your inner self. You may not be aware of it but your preferences are clear indications of your characters.
Another consideration when selecting a new sofa is height, especially when your new sofa is going to be placed in front of an entertainment system, having a sofa which is the correct height not only in respect to your own body's dimensions but also the height of your flat panel television is vital consideration.
