Hello again folks! Today on #SpeakDecor, I am taking up a quaint seating, the Loveseat.
The title 'Loveseat' suggests it is a romantic piece of furniture. Before your imagination starts running wild, let me tell you it is simply a compact two-seater sofa!
Aww, dampened your enthusiasm, did I? Take heart, a version of the loveseat or love seat is called the tête-à-tête, a conversation sofa, a courting bench, a kissing bench, I guess depending on how far the couple seated on it go!
It is a takeaway from the Victorian 1700's era. This one is definitely a romantic one where a pair could have a cozy conversation or something more. You could peek into each other's books while comfortably reading together. Why sometimes covert agents could have clandestine top-secret meetings where secrets are whispered, documents exchanged while seated on this piece!

This S-shaped love seat probably came into being when two oppositely placed single chairs were kept alongside. Some wise guy must have decided to fuse them and hey presto, the tête-à-tête was born!
Ahh, I can just imagine a demure couple politely exchanging frivolities while their stern chaperone keeps a beady eye on them, glad the S-bend connecting the two seats acts as a barrier and doesn't allow too much intimacy!!
Then you have the regular love seats, which are compact two-seater sofas, that may form a combo along with your three-seater sofa. Sometimes if the room is small, you could scrap the three-seater and instead opt for a two-seater. It could also make for a cute seating arrangement in the bedroom, often seen as a part of hotel room decor, its a trend, now gaining popularity with larger homes.

The above dimensions represent a compact two-seater, but depending on your requirement, you could go in for for generous dimensions length, width-wise. But the whole idea behind the loveseat is its compact-coziness, so remember that!
The loveseat can be a statement piece, it need not blend with the rest of the decor.

In rooms where there is a space-crunch, compact loveseats which double up as beds, with pull-out mechanism are ideal space-savers.
So what ever the style, go for the loveseat in your living or bedrooms, children's room, guest-room and remember to flaunt your #SpeakDecor knowledge!
