Differences Between Sofa & Couch Using The LC3 Sofa As Reference (II/II)

In the previous blog, we talked about the etymology of the word couch and how this helps to understand the difference between couch and sofa. In case you haven’t read it yet, we recommend that you do so before continuing.

Now, as what the couch is has already been explained, it’s time to show you what exactly the sofa refers to and see how an LC3 sofa can help us to completely understand the difference. Let’s continue! 

According to Wikipedia, a classic sofa consists of a “wooden structure lined with fabric and padded in some areas (for example, on the armrests). To it are added cushions of various fillings that make up the seat and the backrest…A typical sofa seats one to four people and has armrests for both”.

These are the keywords to understand the differences, basically sofas structures include both arms and they are created to satisfy the necessities of more users than the couches. Let’s see the LC3 sofa and the Togo couch.

As you can see, the formal LC3 sofa has two arms and seats 1 to 3 people. On the other hand, the Togo sofa only has a seat for 1 or 2 people and it has a more casual chaise lounge type structure.
