Looking to build one also but a child size for my photography. Anyone found plans yet?
Hi Sandi in Georgia, I haven't found any plans for a fainting couch, but, I did make one. I used an old upholstered chair I found at a yard sale. If your interested you can e-mail me at susie49ny AT yahoo.com and I will try to explain how I did it.
Sounds like we're cut from the same cloth. I'm interested in finding plans to make my own fainting couch also. Have you had any luck yet?
Hi Lorie, That sounds great. I hope you get the plans soon. I am very interested.

Hi Sue: I am looking for a fainting couch plan, also. I am communicating with a company that does other furniture plans and if I have any successful response to this, I will pass it on to you.

A fainting couch was used in the late 1800's for ladies to recline on when they felt faint from the too tight corsets they wore. It's kind of like a chaise lounge with a slanted back usually with one arm and was upholstered in rich fabrics in the victorian style.
