Did You Know

 Did you know, love seats weren't originally designed for couples? They were designed to fit women with wide skirts.

I did. Those skirts would have been a complete menace to wear.

Maybe large rear ends too.

I can believe it ... but didn't know - amazing how fashion shapes us. Cheers Hilary

I didn't know that, but it makes sense. Good to know for when I wear my hoop skirts. Lol

Christine said...

That is amazing.

CJ Kennedy said...

Didn't know that

Birgit said...

You mean during the Scarlet O'Hara days when they gad hula hoops for those skirts? Interesting and here I thought those loveseats were for dogs

That's a great bit of trivia. I had no idea!

By the way, yesterday your site wouldn't let me comment as me. I was "anonymous" or nothing. Glad it's working today.

Valerie-Jael said...

Good idea!

Adam said...

First I've heard that

Google/blogspot is so cranky. It all depends on what browser I use. One browser I can comment as myself. The other, even on my own site, I'm anonymous. Ack.

On the plus side, you didn't have to worry about anyone stepping into your space. ROFL.

Sandra Cox said...

Maybe. Heh.

Lee said...

Or wide bums! :)

Your Thursday Trivia;)

Sandra Cox said...

I guess they needed to widen the chairs;)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I did not know that!

Sandra Cox said...

Somebody was thinking. Maybe the wife said to the furniture maker: Dear, I don't have a place to set with my wide skirt, would you make me a larger chair? :)

Sandra Cox said...

That was Andrew's thought too:)

Your Thursday furniture trivia;)

Sandra Cox said...

Those poor women had to have a place to sit. Though, they could have taken up the whole sofa and let everyone else stand. Hehe.

No lo sabia, ten un buen jueves. Te mando un beso

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That was news to me, Sandra.
