Another one among the expensive pieces of recliners is this one which is known as the push-back recliner. True to its name, the chair only reclines at the back. Given its total make that is of leather, it is more expensive. The styles and designs that this chair comes in, make it apt for a modern home. It is also called a push-back because the user has to actually apply pressure to make it recline. It is a good buy for people who do not fancy a fully reclining chair, but may not be the same for people with a budget-crunch.
Well now that you're clear on what a fainting couch is, wouldn't you like to know a little about its history? Let's get to it then. Women in England in the 19th century were probably the first users of fainting couches. Apparently, these couches were designed in this particular fashion because most contemporary upper class women in England wore corsets. Corsets tend to put a lot of pressure on the upper body of the wearer and as a result, the circulation of blood was restricted, especially when the women climbed up or down staircases. Hence, these specially designed couches were placed at the foot or head of staircases, for the women to rest as soon as they climbed up or down. Women felt faint due to the restriction of blood flow and sat on the couches until they felt better. That's how they derived the name 'fainting couches'. They also came to be known as Victorian fainting couches. Quite interesting, don't you think?
Another point worth keeping in mind is that, leather sofas are humidity sensitive. Which means, you are going to be mighty uncomfortable in the summers. Microfiber, on the other hand, wicks away moisture, making it suitable for any climatic condition.
If you know what exactly you want, the choice is easy. Just in case you are not sure, there is no substitute to actually sitting and testing your comfort level before you buy it. Sometimes, people buy sofas for the look, color and design but later discover that it's not really what they wanted. So be careful before choosing and give priority to comfort level above everything else.
