Couch.  I'm from the east coast not sure that makes a difference.  I know some people from different regions use different terms for things.

I say couch.  Sofa is a little too formal for me.

Most of the time, I call it a Couch. I do catch myself, sometimes calling it a Sofa.

I've always called it a couch.  Sofa sounds a little too fancy (like it belongs in a parlor) :)

I call it a couch (what my mom called it). My husband calls it a sofa (what his mom called it). Both of my kids call it a couch. My cat just calls it "Mine."  :peace:

I've always called it a couch, although I like the sound of "sofa" better.

Technically, there is a difference. A sofa has two arms, and a couch has one or none.

I never knew that.  You learn something new everyday. :)

We call it a Setee, we don't have room for a couch.
