I usually say sofa, but I'm sure I've used the couch terminology, but davenport? no... but now I know what a davenport is...

Haven't hear the term davenport in years, lol.

I alternate between couch and sofa, but am pretty sure use the term couch most frequently.

I call it the couch. My parents called it the couch and my grandparents called it the sofa.

I call it a couch. I have never heard it called a davenport. That's neat.

All my family call it couch.  I have known people around us to call it a sofa but not very often.

This is interesting.  I don't know if it a generational thing or if people just call it different things in different regions of the country.  kind of like cola, coke, pop, whatever.  I have never even heard it called a davenport, but I call it a couch myself.
