Fallen Out of Love with Loveseats
A common combination when purchasing new living room furniture is a sofa and loveseat. Perhaps we think our rooms are too small for anything else. A loveseat which is a smaller version of a sofa is meant to be a seat for two people. On paper this would appear to optimize seating but in real life it is rare to find more than one person sitting on a loveseat. No one wants to sit that close no matter how much they love each other. It’s always the last seat taken at a party if you think about it.
Often times people do not realize (without design consultation) that they actually have room for two sofas as sofas now come in sizes from 77” to 107”.
Try working with two chairs. You’ll build a cozy conversation group and still have your optimum seating for two people
Arrange four chairs around a large center ottoman with a small sofa off to the side.
At the end of the day there are many ways to love your seating without necessarily having to love a loveseat.
