Joining in once again with Toni and her A-Z, "a....is for" meme, this week's letter is D and I bring you.....
I used to read about Davenports in fiction novels set in times past, but never really knew what they were. I imagined they were some kind of porch swing.
Once I found out, I wanted one.
I didn't buy one though, for several reasons, one being I had no place to put a Davenport, another being I couldn't see myself actually using it.
I quite like this one above with all the little drawers down the sides.
The long and narrow storage box above the writing surface would be for pens and possibly the bottles of ink as well.
There are also Davenport Sofas.
Some even fold down to become beds, just like modern sofa beds available everywhere.
"Davenport is the name of a series of sofas made by the now-defunct Massachusetts furniture manufacturer A H Davenport company."
Thank you, Wikipedia and Google images.
