Published at Friday, 19 July 2019. Sofas & Couches. By Giacinta D'Andrea.
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.
One of the main considerations is whether to buy a suite, a unit system or sofas and armchairs separately. The advantage of buying a suite-consisting of a sofa and two matching armchairs -is that you can make considerable savings. Furniture retailers are usually able to offer suites at more competitive prices than buying the items individually. However, a suite may not offer the flexibility that you are looking for or suit the room, so it is worth taking the time to plan what arrangement and size of furniture best fits the space before making the final decision.
See the Couch Picture. Whenever you wish to purchase any used furniture, see the picture first. If you are not sure, ask for close up pictures to look for infestations or damages or cigarette burns, etc. and buy only the best as well as cheap one. Check if the couch is covered. Some sellers buy a good cover or new cushions to hide the defects of their old couch. Do not fall for such ploys. Check the couch first. Couches left outside. Do not buy a sofa or couch that has been left outside to be preyed upon by rain, snow, sun, insects and other strays. These sofas are not worth to be kept inside your living room.
