The differences between a sofa and a couch are not exactly striking.

  • Release on :2017-04-12
   The two are actually very similar but differences do exist. So don’t make the mistake of thinking they’re synonyms. Once you learn the characteristics that define each piece, you’ll never mistake one for another again.

   Etymology and history.

   The terms “sofa” and “couch” have two very different origins. The first one comes from the Arabic term “suffah” which describes a bench covered with blankets and cushions.The second one comes from the French “couche” and it’s a piece of furniture that was popularly used in the Victorian era.

   As for their structure and shape, sofas usually feature two armrests and a uniform back while couches generally feature one armrest or none at all and a tapered back.
