The two-way and three-way French conversation sofa gained immense popularity during France's Second Empire, their birthplace. The two-seater, dubbed "le confidant", served for confidential discussions, often between political confidants. Sporting a propeller-like design, the three-way french conversation sofas earned the name "indiscret", paying homage to the third person intruding into private conversations. The Emperor Napoleon strategically placed in his ministers' Louvre apartments, seemingly encouraging advisors and subjects to eavesdrop on one another.
