The history of the loveseat can be traced back to the 1600s when they were basically just larger chairs which noblewomen used to sit on to arrange their puffy dresses. Around that time they also became popular with couples which enjoyed the privacy these seats offered, hence the “loveseat” name which stuck. Today a loveseat has become an alternative to the sofa for small living rooms. It also makes a nice addition to large bedrooms, guest rooms or even offices. This miniature sofa is surprisingly versatile and there are numerous beautiful designs which support that claim.
