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?
Recliner sofas are one of the best kinds of furniture to have around the house. They are also one of the largest pieces of furniture in terms of the space they utilize. A recliner helps one relax while indulging in any other. For example, you can relax on them and watch television or even read a book on a lazy Sunday afternoon. They are like stress busters.
Other furniture that can be covered include futons, chaise lounges and ottomans. Recover a favorite armchair or buy patterned tapestry cushions for a wicker sofa. Parsons and wing back chairs can also be slipcovered to hide worn upholstery.
