the couch 40x30cm

although usually not comfortable, I just love the looks of these antique looking couches... [A.R.]

The term 'couch' is used in North AmericaAustraliaNew Zealand, whilst the term 'sofa' is generally used in the United Kingdom and Ireland. 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.
