Where can I find a new fainting couch (like the one seen above but less fancy will do) for less than or around $500.00? Is that a pipe dream? I don't want an antique because I spent yesterday poking around in my cities plethora of antique shops for one, and they all smelled like someone had died on them (and some had so many suspicious stains it really made me wonder). I checked Ikea and didn't like the one option they had, and I've never purchased furniture on Amazon so I'm leery. Where should I begin my search? Have you seen new versions of fainting couches at any stores before, preferably chain stores?
