As their name suggests, love seats are intimate pieces of furniture, generally intended to seat no more than two people comfortably. Their size conveys a sense of intimacy as well, making loveseats a perfect addition for small rooms, as well as for conversation areas in larger spaces. Here are a few tips for buying a great loveseat for your home:
Versatile Design Options
Loveseats are small enough to provide seating in a variety of settings. They are as charming on a patio as they are in a bedroom or entry hall. They are particularly suitable for children´s rooms, whether for a bedroom or playroom. Reclining loveseats are perfect for home movie theaters too, providing a sense of intimacy, yet allowing plenty of personal space. In large, open living areas, they offer options to divide and define the space into more intimate settings. Loveseats can be chosen to blend with existing décor, or can serve as interesting accents.
Sofas and loveseats are often offered as sets, sometimes with coordinating tables and chairs. Some loveseats recline, in the same fashion as reclining chairs, and may feature a flip-down arm rest in the center. Others convert into beds, making them a perfect choice for spare bedrooms that double as a home office, hobby room or other work space. In a studio apartment, a convertible loveseat saves valuable living space.
Everything in Proportion
Aside from being the right scale for seating in small rooms, loveseats are pleasingly proportioned in and of themselves. A sofa can appear long and ungainly. A loveseat rarely does. With a perfect balance of height and width, loveseats add a feeling of order and elegance to the design of a room. When used with sofas, they add a sense of balance to the seating arrangement. Sofas and loveseats often look better together than a sofa alone.
In a sense, love seats are a cross between a chair and a sofa, and as such, they can encompass all the styles offered by either. While a sofa might look too prim and stuffy decked out in the extravagance of a traditional, upholstered and tufted chair, a loveseat looks charming. As seating for one, a loveseat provides all the comfort and options of an oversized chair, with a lot more style. They are available in an endless variety of color, pattern, texture, fabric and material, as well as in any decorating style.
Whenever purchasing furniture, it is important to consider the quality of the piece, ensuring that the furniture is well-constructed with quality materials. Look for retailers that offer quality brands of furnishings and that back their products with professional, courteous and prompt customer service. A quality loveseat is likely to find a place in your home for years to come.
