NOTES Long, upholstered seating forms with a back and two ends; primarily used for sitting rather than reclining. Distinct from "couches" which have a back support and one end and are primarily used for reclining rather than sitting. The terms sofa and settee are virtually interchangeable in 20th-century usage but there is a distinction between the two; a sofa is generally completely upholstered.
