    Thanks for this article. But is there any difference between a sofa and a couch? In America, “couch” and “sofa” are often interchanged, since they’re built long upholstered furniture designed for relaxing.

    Historically, a couch and a sofa are distinct. The word “couch” probably comes from the French word “couche”, meaning a piece of furniture without arms used for lying.” While a sofa” is “a long, upholstered seat with arms and a back.

    Arms seemed to be the old distinguishing feature between a couch and a sofa. So technically, “sofa” is the correct term.
