Learn about Settees and Sofas

An upholstered couch, based on the 18th century French canape, often with a high back and shaped front, usually standing upon cabriole, turned or sabre legs. Distinguished, perhaps, from the full stuffed over couch, the sofa usually had a band of polished show wood around the seat, back and arm frames. During the Regency, many sofas were made based on the principles of the Classical Revival. Such sofas are noted for their deeply scrolled arms and curved sabre legs, usually reeded. Their influence can be traced through the many colonial day beds and miner's couches, however humble by comparison, made during the later part of the 19th century.

Learn about Sofa Table

A long, rather narrow table with drawers and a flap at each end supported by fly rails. Sofa tables are mostly supported by two pedestals which may be turned, of lyre shape or square section standing on splay feet. Originally the tables were placed in front of the sofa for reading or writing. Modern practice is often to place them behind a sofa or to use them as occasional tables elsewhere in a room. Nineteenth century sofa tables sometimes omitted the flaps.
