Sofa vs couch: What’s the difference?
Before we dive into the list, let’s set things straight. While the words “sofa” and “couch” are pretty much interchangeable these days, there is actually a difference between the two.
One big distinction between sofas and couches is the presence (or lack thereof) of arms. Sofas have arms while couches traditionally do not – it’s that simple! Another obvious difference is their seating capacities. A couch is usually smaller, seating only two to three people, whereas a sofa is capable of holding four or more guests.
Lastly, sofas and couches have different functions. While you can lounge around on armrest-less and comfortable couches, a standard sofa is meant for a more formal, sitting affair.
