Who invented the sofa?
The advent of the sofa dates back to 2000 BC in Ancient Egypt. The word, however, is derived from the Arabic word “suffah”. People have been using sofas for thousands of years. Modern-day sofas are a lot more comfortable as they come with cushions that are made from materials that aid in comfort.
In 2000BC, only the extremely rich such as pharaohs were able to afford sofas. As a result, sofas were seen as status symbols as they showed how rich and powerful a person was.
We do not know who invented the very first sofa as it has been around for thousands of years.
Modern sofas first came about in 1895 due to a man called Jay Wellingdon. Since then, people have become more and more skilled at making sofas. Sofas over the years have become less and less expensive and more comfortable.
Modern sofas have become commonplace in houses or apartments across the world. Modern sofas are a lot more comfortable than those of the past. They come in lots of different styles as there is a lot more demand for them and because they are more comfortable to sit down on.
Sofas have been around a long time and the first ones were very expensive and seen as a state symbol however they weren’t as comfortable as they are now. Modern sofas have come a long way in both comfortability and availability.
