Loveseats are small two-seat sofas designed originally as a wider form of the armchair. Also known as double-chairs, loveseats are typically matched with larger couches in living room or family room furniture setups, but their usage today may also include seating in small spaces, informal office break-out spaces, and intimate places to read in libraries or coffee shops.

What is a loveseat?

A loveseat is a sofa for two people (a couple) or in other words, a small two-seat sofa. Also known as a double chair, a loveseat can be purchased on its own or as part of a living room set. A loveseat can come in a variety of styles and forms such as lower backs with higher arm rests.

How long is a loveseat?

There is no set standard of length for a loveseat as it can come in a variety of dimensions in order to fit a variety of rooms and spaces. However, the general range of a loveseat measured from armrest to armrest is between 48 and 72 inches (19 and 28 cm).

Why is a loveseat called a loveseat?

Despite its name, the loveseat was not invented to seat couples or lovers together. Its original intent was to give women more room to sit in their large and lavish dresses. As the fashion of the time changed, so did the loveseat’s use as it became the ideal piece of furniture for two people to engage in close conversation. This kind of seat was in an S-shape in order to face each other, but the loveseat we know today is a side-by-side seating sofa.

Womb Settee

The Womb Settee was formed by application of foam molded over a fiberglass shell. It also features a steel base finished with polished chrome. This technique allowed for a single-piece seat shell that supported the natural posture of the human body when seated.
