What's a loveseat and why do you need one?

A loveseat derives its name from holding two people close to one another. First invented in the 17th century, this two-person chair was intended for women wearing large dresses with hoops to sit comfortably.

Loveseat’s small size, which is typically only fit to seat two people; providing an intimate seating arrangement and is a date night essential. They are perfect for an area that is too small for a large sofa but still needs seating. It can also work to complement another larger sofa. Some people use them to add seating in a bedroom.

Another form of loveseats of the past is called tête-à-tête, courting bench, kissing bench, gossip's chair, or conversation bench, is any form of two-seat furniture where the two seats are arranged in an S shape, so that two persons can converse while looking at each other and being within arm's reach, while at the same time typically retaining a modest barrier between them.

Loveseats have become small sofas, size ranging from 40 inches to 70 inches. Larger than 70 inches is considered a sofa and smaller than 40 inches is a chair.

You can use loveseats in home to add style and a feeling of extravagance as opposed to space-saving seating. They are great for cuddling with your partner or relaxing with a book. They can be used to add seating or comfort in bedrooms, entries, or anywhere people congregate in the home.

Regardless, if you like to be sitting close with a loved one, or simply want a sofa that won’t take up too much space in a small living room, the loveseat might be the best option for you.
