Stood means "placed" or "put" in this context. But I would think you'd already know that since this question is posted on another site with a similar answer. Wink

By the way, this sentence sounds like something out of a 19th century British novel. In North America, at least, we don't use the term sitting room anymore, and even when we did, we didn't hyphenate it in writing.
