Quick Tip: Don't always try to break the monochromatic color scheme of a sofa with accessories. If done well, monochromatic schemes can transform a dull living room to a classy and elegant one.
Well now that you're clear on what a fainting couch is, wouldn't you like to know a little about its history? Let's get to it then. Women in England in the 19th century were probably the first users of fainting couches. Apparently, these couches were designed in this particular fashion because most contemporary upper class women in England wore corsets. Corsets tend to put a lot of pressure on the upper body of the wearer and as a result, the circulation of blood was restricted, especially when the women climbed up or down staircases. Hence, these specially designed couches were placed at the foot or head of staircases, for the women to rest as soon as they climbed up or down. Women felt faint due to the restriction of blood flow and sat on the couches until they felt better. That's how they derived the name 'fainting couches'. They also came to be known as Victorian fainting couches. Quite interesting, don't you think?
When looking at the number of pieces that make up a small sectional sofa set, 3 pieces are usually the starting point. When furnishing a small living space, anything over 3 to 4 pieces would typically overwhelm the space. You want to make small rooms appear larger and cramming furniture into a tight space would not be conducive to a spacious feeling.
A vintage sofa may belong to any era and may be called by a variety of names, but in the end, it is the comfort and the value for money you get that matters when you invest in one. Not only does it lend timeless appeal to your room, it also speaks volumes about your personality, and your innate ability to flawlessly blend the traditional with the modern.
