French term or phrase: dont les canapés ont été maçonnés
Probably something simple, but it's the end of a long day, and I'm unsure of the meaning of the phrase "dont les canapés ont été maçonnés", from a French property description. Thanks in advance for any ideas...

"Au rez-de-chaussée : entrée, dégagement desservant les étages, beau séjour cheminée dont les canapés ont été maçonnés, garage remise".

Asker: Thanks, yes, it has been a long day, and I realised immediately after sending that the answer to this one was pretty obvious. Thanks a lot and best wishes.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  rkillings: A masonry sofa sounds uncomfortable! The English-speaking buyer would probably call these banquettes requiring sofa cushions.
