Our old worn sectional couch had to go and I looked at thrift store and on Craigslist for something to replace it... But everything now is so huge and overstuffed and totally inappropriate for our old house.... So I finally settled on a used sofa with a Victorian look for the end of the room... Now there was nothing for the dogs to sit on to look out the window and this would never do.
Of course something like this old chaise would be perfect except for the price..
Then I ran across a "Victorian sitting bench"....arms on both ends and no back..... perfect except for the price.
