If you look at antique French wing chairs, or newer chairs echoing the Louis XIV or Louis XV period, you may well see a lower seat in the bergère style. Similarly, in 18th century England Hepplewhite tried lowering the seat in his designs. He called the wings saddle-cheeks, perhaps knowing that they were called cheeks, not wings, in France. Ears is their other name, used in some parts of Europe, and remembered in the old-fashioned British name lug-chair. (Lugs is slang for ears.)
In a very large room seating can be arranged around more than one focal point, whereas in smaller rooms only one focal point may be practical. Common focal points may be coffee tables or fire places. Today large screen televisions have increasingly been installed in lounges, sadly, often with little thought to the layout of the room as a whole.
