A recamier by any other name...

...and actually, known by many other names; fainting couch, dormeuse, day bed, chaise longues. From the sleek to the fantastical, all are wonderfully functional, decorative and can be used in a variety of settings.

With skirt or without, with button tufting or without, the Andante by Kravet offers almost limitless choices with 60,000 fabric options, or COM.
