“A fainting couch is a couch with a back that is traditionally raised at one end. The back may be situated completely at one side of the couch, or may wrap around and extend the entire length of the piece much like a traditional couch. However, fainting couches are easily differentiated from more traditional couches, having one end of the back raised.
Fainting couches were popular in the 19th century, and were particularly used by women.
Some houses would take this to the level of having separate fainting rooms, where these couches would be the featured furniture.”
Condition: While the upholstery of our fainting couch is in very good condition, the legs were damaged at one point and need repair (we do have the necessary pieces as shown in the pictures); however, the couch is perfectly usable as is! Come on in and try it out! It’s a fabulous piece and if we had room in our house, I’d take it home right away!
Dimensions: 72″L x 30″W. The body of the couch is about 16″H, while the head is about 25″H.
Price: $95.00 plus Maine sales tax of $5.23 for a total of $100.23.
