Description

Know Your Furniture: Sofa, Loveseat, Divan, or Canapé

January 07, 2013

In this segment of the Know Your Furniture series, brought to you by Madison Seating, we shall endeavor to explore the different types of couches and sofa’s as well as the differences between them.

A couch or sofa is a piece of furniture for seating two or more persons in the form of a bench, with or without armrests, that is partly or wholly upholstered, and often fitted with springs and tailored cushions. Although a couch is used primarily for seating, it may be used for reclining.

In homes, couches are normally found in the family room, living room, den, sitting room or the lounge. They are also found in hotels, lobbies of commercial offices, waiting rooms, furniture stores, etc.

The perfect arm chair in just the right place is sometimes all it takes to really bring a room together.

When it comes to interior design, a great design combination sometimes hinges on the small things. It is amazing what a small lamp here or appropriate vase there can do to help round out a particular effect and enhance the general ambiance and feel of the room.
