A Fainting Couch
Back in the days when corsets were tight and morals strict, many a well-appointed home contained a piece of furniture specifically designed to catch a waning damsel succombing to "the vapors."
Referred to as a "Fainting Couch," this piece of furniture sat ready to "catch" the fall-out from improper conversation, excessive Sherry, or lack of oxygen. No refined lady was without one of these in her parlour.
Beautiful and functional, it was impossible not to look regal resting in its care-either awake or unconscious.

A wall where you need one, a view if you have none, or perhaps a shield to hide where your gaslight sconce scorched the wallpaper, many Victorian homes decorated with folding screens.
Often depicting scenes of elegance, or Eden-like pastorals, screens offered a window into another world.
