What we have is a beautiful professionally refinished and reapolstered fainting sofa fold out couch bed that dates back at least to the mid to late 1800's. Stories passed down through generations of my wife's family has it being brought here with the family from Germany in the 1880's, that it had already been in the family for a long time and actually dates back to the 1700's. The woodwork is an intricate carved walnut. The upolstery is now a rich blue velvet over modern padding (the original piece was actually padded with straw). We have proudly had this piece on display off the entrance to our home but are trading down to a smaller home and will have no room for it.
