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.

Comfortable and adequate living-room seating is therefore an essential purchase for your home.

As with most purchases, cost reflects quality and it is worth allocating as much money as you can afford. Your reward is a sofa or suite that will give you many years of relaxing service.
