A divan is a long furniture piece with a single mattress to sit on and cushions to rest against. Divans originate from the middle east, and were typically used in government council chambers before becoming common in long or narrow spaces and homes. A divan does share a resemblance to a couch or sofa, yet is designed with only one mattress pad, a few cushions to rest against, and is placed upon a raised frame. Per tradition, divans are placed against a wall or in the corner of a room rather than in the center.
