First appearing in the 17th century, loveseats were basically larger chairs that nobles sat on to arrange their puffy dresses. It was also around this time that they became popular with couples who enjoyed the privacy of these seats, giving the pieces their name – “love seats”. Today, a loveseat is an alternative to a sofa, a smaller piece of seating furniture for a tiny living room, bedroom, guest room or home office.

There are love seats for literally every decorating style and of course you can opt for a contrasting piece to accentuate the space.
