Earlier 19th and 20th century sofa styles (e.g. Victorian, French and Federal period) tended to be only lightly padded with velvet or needlework covered cushions, leaving much of the wooden frame exposed. Chaise lounge designs (think Freud's couch) were also popular. But by the time Mid-Century Modern and Eames styles came around, couches were fully padded, low to the ground, angular, and often raised off the ground by short legs.
