Sofas are available in various sizes and shapes. Small doesn't exactly define how small, but you can be assured that these sofas can fit in perfectly in a living room of any size. You can choose different sizes and designs even among the smaller varieties of leather sofas. For instance, some styles are available with an end piece with a right or left arm, a middle piece without any arm, a corner piece, an ottoman, a chaise, or a recliner sofa. Moreover, these sofas can be customized so that they look exactly how you visualized them in your living space.
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?
Now as I mentioned earlier, a vintage sofa can be a steep expense, but if you're lucky, you can find a steal. Remember that sometimes, you may have to restuff the cushions, reupholster the sofa, and get the frame refinished and strengthened. All these extras can escalate the cost of a vintage sofa quickly. Even then, if it is still cheaper than a new sofa (i.e., a reproduction), you are in luck!
