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.
Sofas and psychologists have been associated with each other for some time. Although not all psychologists will instruct his or her client to lie down for sessions, the idea hinges on many Freudian psychoanalysis theories -therefore, is used often by doctors that adhere to such notions. Lying down as a therapist or psychoanalyst of some kind may be an important aspect of his or her method for interpreting dreams. It has been theorized that stream of consciousness is much easier for the client to voice when in a calming, physical position. It is the concept that the relaxation provided by reclining in such a way, as well as not looking the doctor or healer in the face -helps the individual open up or speak more freely: a logical idea.
Whenever we have guest visiting and no extra bedding for the night, we often use our sofa as the bed. This can get a little uncomfortable as the sofa restricts our sleeping positions, thus giving unwanted body pain. In order to avoid such inconvenience try convertible sofas. They are basically a day couch which can be turned into an actual bed, with easy hand-held mechanism. It is a good alternative to futons and has many advantages to it.
