A red two-seater upholstered loveseat

A loveseat is a couch or sofa designed for seating two persons, and it typically has two cushion seats.[1][2] A proper loveseat has the two parties facing parallel[clarification needed] to each other.


Loveseats have been in production since the early 1800s in the US. These early designs were not intended to aid courtship between two people, as is more generally the case today, but rather to provide a seat that would accommodate the large dresses worn by the ladies of the period.[3]
