The frame of a wooden sofa.

Identifying a Sofa?This was my childhood couch. My mom says she bought it from JCPenny in the late 1960s or early 70s. I hope to restore it to its former glory but I can't seem to figure out what brand it is or anything. I was hoping to find someone else with this sofa but I've not had any luck? Can anyone here identify it?

Identifying a Kitchen Tool? - tool similar to tongs
