Whether you call it a sofa or couch, this piece of home furniture has a hoary past. It’s history can be traced back to a couple of millennia to the Middle Kingdom of Egypt (2000-1700 BCE)!
Lost and found
The word ‘sofa’ itself is likely derived from ‘suf’, the Arabic word for ‘wool’. In the beginning, sofas were beyond the reach of commoners and were reserved for the royal families, nobles, and the elite. For a millennium right up until about 400 years ago, the sofa was virtually forgotten in the upheaval that followed the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.
The sofa is a prime example of humanity’s preoccupation with comfort and leisure. Its “rediscovery” subsequently sparked a wave of renewed and democratised interest that eventually led to it being embraced by the masses. Today, regardless of whether you are well-to-do or comprise the vast middle class, the sofa is a must-have piece of furniture for your living room.
