Extrasoft sofa by Piero Lissoni for Living Divani. Image from http://www.livingdivani.it/
I recently wondered what the difference was between a sofa and a couch. To me it seems that the terms are used interchangeably, but I assume that at one point there must have been a difference. I figured that couch must relate somehow to coucher in French, but I had no clue about sofa. Looking up the etymology of each word I found the following (from http://www.etymonline.com):
Pretty interesting to see how these words have evolved to the present day, where they essentially mean the same thing. Whatever you want to call it, there's no denying that the sofa makes or breaks a living room. Having a comfy place to curl up and watch a movie or read a book is vital for a comfortable home. I love the Extrasoft by Piero Lissoni (above). All of the blocks are separate pieces and can be moved around and reconfigured any way you like.
