What does this mean?

There are a few terms for this style of reclining chair back couch. They are referred to as divans, a recamier, a chaise longue (or lounge). Stylistically it is modeled after French Napoleon III chaise longue which originated around 1860. Slipper Chairs denote more of a wide, low-set chair, however they do not usually have the length for reclining. Yours is a Mid-20th Century piece and is referred to as an upholstered 'Hollywood Regency' Napoleon III Chaise Longue, divan or recamier. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables.
