19C British Mahogany Library Sofa with Scroll Arms.

I found this piece about 20 years ago and it was in 'terrible' condition !! But I could immediately see the quality in the piece despite its condition. The frame was in perfect original condition but the original brown leather upholstery was in a terrible state. I bought it and has it professionally restored to its current beauty !!! We stayed loyal to its original look and the restorer used only the very best materials in restoring this piece ! The sofa is now exactly as it would have appeared in a Great Estate House in the UK or Ireland !

VERY DOWNTON ABBEY !!!

Absolutely PERFECT CONDITION !!

19C British Mahogany Library Sofa with Scroll Arms.

HISTORY OF SOFA'S: A couch or sofa is a piece of furniture for seating two or more people in the form of a bench, with or without armrests, that is partially or entirely upholstered, and often fitted with springs and tailored cushions.[1][2] Although a couch is used primarily for seating, it may be used for reclining and napping.[3]

In homes, couches are normally found in the family room, living room, den, sitting room or the lounge. They are also found in hotels, lobbies of commercial offices, waiting rooms, and some bars.

The term couch is used in North America and Australia, whilst the term sofa is generally used in the United Kingdom. The word originated in Middle English from the Old French noun couche, which derived from the verb meaning "to lie down".[4] It originally denoted an item of furniture for lying or sleeping on, somewhat like a chaise longue, but now refers to sofas in general.[citation needed]

Other terms which can be synonymous with the above definition are settee, chesterfield, divan, davenport, lounge, and canapé.[2] The word sofa is from Turkish derived from the Arabic word suffa for "wool", originating in the Aramaic word sippa for "mat".[5] The word settee comes from the Old English word, "setl", which was used to describe long benches with high backs and arms, but is now generally used to describe upholstered seating.
