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?
Recliners are getting sassier by the year. If you need it for therapeutic purposes, you can opt for ones that have vibrators to massage the body, heat systems, push-backs, etc. Comfortable pillow arms, leg rests, and even a built-in table to keep a tray of goodies, is one of the must-have features in the recliners. Besides, there are some people who love to literally curl up in the sofa. For this purpose you might need a large one with cushions and soft backs.
Entertainment Furniture For this youre looking at what goes on in most living rooms: the TV. Lets be honest, a TV is standard in almost every home in America the most common place for it is the living room. So naturally, entertainment centers which house TVs and other electronics fall into the living room furniture essentials.
Finally, consider my cowboy question above (wink-wink). Cowboys like leather. I don't care where in the country you live, you probably have a little cowboy inside you somewhere. Look at all the fancy businessmen walking down the streets of our big cities with their stylin' cowboy boots on. I guess I just think having a little cowboy inside is part of what it means to be American. And doesn't every American cowboy want a leather sofa? Of course they do!
