What's The Difference Between A Loveseat And A Sofa?
Ultimately, there is not much difference between a love seat and a 3 seater sofa except for their size. A love seat is basically a small sofa, or more specifically, a sofa designed for 2 people. A traditional sectional sofa is typically a 3-4 seat piece of furniture, and nowadays, depending on a person's needs, and the size of their family and their home, a loveseat in Australia will often be purchased alongside a larger sofa, and possibly an armchair and coffee table to make up a modern furniture set.
These cute and cosy sofas got their name from the fact that they were originally used for courting couples who wanted to spend some intimate time together. Back in the day when dating was an extremely formal affair courting couples would be allowed only very limited physical contact and time together, so the loveseat sofa provided them with some close and personal moments. They could sit within arms reach of each other and converse intimately face-to-face, whilst still under the beady eye of someone else.
Who Needs A Love Seat Sofa Today?
Obviously things have changed and today we no longer have to sneak off to snatch secret moments with a loved one, but that doesn't mean a loveseatsofa is out of fashion. Because they are basically a 2-seater sofa, they are ideal for couples that love to snuggle up - perfect for a romantic night in watching your favourite romcom movie (or even better to watch a scary horror film together).
The practicalities of having a smaller sofa speak for themselves, as these petit pieces of furniture fit perfectly into smaller spaces. And let's not forget about our furry friends - a loveseat in Australia can also be just the right size for you and your dog to share!
