Couch Shadow (Home Geography)
Definition: A geographical feature of the common home, describing an area of floor behind the slanted back of a couch that does not get foot traffic due to said slanting couch back. The length of a specific couch's couch shadow is generally equal to the length of the specific couch; the depth of a couch's couch shadow can vary, and is determined by the degree of slant of a given couch's back.
Whether or not it is acceptable to leave footwear in a home's couch shadow (or shadows) is a subject of some debate.
