Published at Friday, 11 October 2019. Sofas & Couches. By Giacinta D'Andrea.
Until the 20th century the sofa or couch was the name which referred to a long, upholstered seat - one end would be inclined enough for the person lounging on it to rest his or her head. In the late, middle ages the couch almost signified a daybed, and again, we do have our modern versions of the daybed, do we not? Window seats are also very beautiful, comfortable, luxurious and simple to install.
Presently, even on situation comedies on American television, the couch is sometimes virtually serves as an additional lead -character in the show. For example: The Simpsons, a television show with which almost every American is familiar -even if only by reputation. I can not imagine a time in the future where the sofa or some version of it will be eliminated. Like all furniture that has been designed by people throughout the ages, the sofa is one that is revived, improved, designed by variations on a basic theme -and yet is timeless.
Stanley Furniture Company. Stanley Furniture Company is another story of long-lived success, founded nearly 100 years ago in the Commonwealth of Virginia. During that time, farmer turned industrialist Thomas Stanley founded this company on principles of fine craftsmanship and a drive only truly seen during the changes brought about by the industrial revolution. Thomas Stanley later went on to become the Governor of Virginia, and Stanley Furniture continued it's rise to success. Today, Stanley is a publicly-traded company (NASDAQ: STLY) and continues to innovate with truly unique and inspiring designs. Stanley, as many of the best furniture brands found here on this list have kept a keen eye on emerging design trends and have adapted to meet an ever-changing demand within the furniture market. The majority of their style could be best described as a modern interpretation of traditional styles, though they are no strangers to more contemporary and modern styled lines. Stanley furniture offers sales through authorized local dealers, which can be found through their dealer locator page. Additionally, Stanley furniture can be found for purchase on Wayfair.
