A loveseat is a couch or sofa designed for seating two persons, and it typically has two cushion seats. 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, but rather to provide a seat that would accommodate the large dresses worn by the ladies of the period.
