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 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.
Pick the right size. When deciding on the size of the sofa, you need to take into consideration a variety of aspects. For example, look at the whole room and figure out how much space are you willing to let the sofa occupy and whether or not there are other pieces of furniture that you need to include there. Perhaps you'd also like to have a couch in the room or a coffee table.
