Just in the nick of time, the return of the fainting couch

I almost fell over from a spell of the vapors when I saw this good news, just in time for the spring furniture show in North Carolina.

Fainting couch, lounge chair or chaise – whatever you tag it, this elongated chair is showing up once again in homes and showrooms. The chaise, whose origins stretch back to the daybeds of ancient Egypt and Greece, had fallen out of favor. But new looks are making it more appealing to today’s furniture buyers.

+ And what’s a “social couch” anyway?
