During the Victorian Era, women used these couches in their fainting rooms. This allowed a level of comfort whenever they felt dizzy and light-headed as a result of their overtightened corsets. Now, you can drape yourself graciously across a stylishly grand fainting couch whenever you wish – no need to wait until you feel dizzy.
Fainting couches should be plushly covered, and well stuffed. Often designed with a sweeping, tufted back and curved legs, they add a touch of decadence and luxury to any interior.
Ideal for relaxing with your favorite book, our fainting couches have all been evaluated for a number of crucial elements, including:
- Quality – a high-quality material, and construction components will ensure your couch lasts a long time
- Durability – durable workmanship will keep your couch looking good for years and years
- Value – we bring you the best possible prices without sacrificing quality
- Comfort – our couches must offer a superior level of comfort
- Fire retardancy – the couch must comply with the latest regulations
Only if the couch has passed these tests, do we include it on our site, thus ensuring a consistent level of excellence throughout, enabling you to browse with complete confidence.
