Sofa, Settee or Couch?
What do You Call Yours?
Have you ever wondered why some people say ‘sofa’ while others say ‘settee’? Couch further confuses the matter. So what is the difference? Do the words mean the same but are used by different types of people, or is it that a sofa is an entirely different thing to a settee?
The word ‘Couch’ is more widely used in America and many consider it to be interchangeable with ‘Sofa’. However, according to www.homedit.com a couch is not the same thing as a sofa – but maybe it’s the same thing as a settee?
