New Sofa

lounging on the new sofa

Sometimes the terms sofa and couch are used interchangeably. Sofa has slightly different connotations. For some people it is an "upper class" term. Sofa may also mean a lounge type seat which may not have a back, arm pieces on the sides or may have puffier cushions than a couch. A sofa may also be smaller, like a love seat.
