Long time ago the thrones for rulers were not comfortable. Arabian sultans sat on it for spending nice time, this furniture was designed only for sultans. For such sofas they use pillows and fabrics. Sofas were created. This royal furniture of Oriental origin appeared in the European salons and living rooms only at the end of the 17th century, when the East India Company (British, Dutch, Danish) was established and trade developed. Then, in the Old Continent, there was a fashion for the culture of the eastern countries. Eastern inspirations have appeared in philosophy and literature, but also in the arts, furniture and decorations.
The furniture, which resembles today’s sofas, also stood in the dining rooms and at the chambers of Roman houses. Also sofas were treated as reserved places for the selected. Only high-ranking men who had been discussing something for hours could sit on it.
For centuries, the sofa was a luxury. Only the industrial revolution moved her popularity to the middle class.
Today, most of us can not imagine our own living room without a furniture that usually occupies a central place in the room. We use sofas for the rest and also, like the Romans in the acient times, we meet and have important conversations with family, friends near sofas.
But there is something that makes us enjoy more luxury than any Arab Sultan. Unlimited choice and variety of offers make us better than old monarchs from different parts of the world. We can buy folding sofa, modular, with container, leather and fabric. Some of them can be used as a bed, others can be hidden.
Nowadays designer put on functionaly and also its contected with design and comfortable for example in offer upholstery furniture manufactur DomArtSty Except untypical project we found there wide choice of fabric – we can say “the choice of colour” because manufacture from Kępno implements orders the most of all in individual customer project. And it not only ready to prepare furniture on custom dimensions but also with dedicated upholstery.
Sofas – nowadays they are called interchangeable couches, ottomans and even lodges, but by analyzing dictionary definitions one can argue whether all these terms mean the same. Polish dictionary PWN calls the couch “armchair with backrests and armrests, intended for sitting or lying down for several people,” sofa, but, referred to as “low, soft couch.” A slightly different description has earned Ottoman furniture from Turkey, characterized as “low bench with side rollers instead of armrests and soft backrest.” Still another meaning is the lodge, which in dictionaries is usually described as a room in theaters. Today, more and more, saying “lodge” we have in mind a characteristic long, padded bench with comfortable backrest, without railing or rollers. Such kind of furniture will meet in the bar or restaurant.
Where is the border between the restaurant logue, the ottoman and the sofa, and which one to choose?So if you read it and don`t sit on comfortable sofa better hurry up because someone else can take your pleace and then you will game about sofa – your home thron.
