Triptych: (pronounced “triptik”, from the Greek meaning “three-fold”) an artwork consisting of three panels – a typically larger middle panel, flanked by two smaller related works. There are however triptychs of equal-sized panels. Historically, triptych panels were hinged in order for the work to be folded for easy transport.

Sofa Table: a high, long, narrow table positioned behind a sofa to display both decorative and functional items, such as lamps. Dating back to the late 18th century, sofa tables originally featured a drop leaf on either side and often contained one or more shallow drawers. Sofa tables have since evolved – gone are the drop leaves, although most modern sofa tables still have drawers.
