The origin of the sofa:
The origin of the sofa can be traced back to ancient Egypt around 2000 BC, but the real upholstered sofa appeared from the end of the 16th century to the beginning of the 17th century. At that time, sofas were mainly filled with natural elastic materials such as horsehair, poultry feathers, and plant fluff, and were covered with fabrics such as velvet and embroidery to form a soft human contact surface. For example, the Farthingle chair, which was popular in Europe at that time, was one of the earliest sofa chairs. Looking back on the history of China’s sofa development, the "Jade Table" of the Han Dynasty should be the first to be introduced. The "Jade Table", a seat with a thick layer of fabric, depicted in "Xijing Miscellany" can be regarded as the "ancestor" of the Chinese sofa.
