Additional Loveseat Features to Consider
Many of the more traditional loveseats include extra trim detailing for a more luxurious look. Scrolled arms offer a gentle silhouette that curves and curls outward for a softened aesthetic. For a more luxe look, button tufting on the back cushions and arms add charming texture. Some loveseats also feature rows of metal studs up the arms and along the base of the seat for an eye-catching detail.
While most loveseats on Overstock are upholstered over a wood frame, others include an exposed wood frame for a distinctly modern look. Many feature eco-friendly rubberwood that may include a walnut, pecan or dark espresso finish to match your other furniture. You can also find wicker and imitation wicker loveseats that make your deck or patio even more inviting.
What's the difference between a sofa and a loveseat?
The only difference between a sofa and a loveseat is size. A loveseat is smaller and generally seats about two people, while even a modest two-person sofa offers more elbow room. Sofas are roomier and typically seat 2-4 people comfortably.
How do you assemble your loveseat?
Locate the assembly parts and instructions that came with your loveseat, often tucked into the lining of the furniture, and follow the manufacturer's assembly instructions. Depending on the model, this often takes just 15 to 30 minutes. Keep in mind that some loveseats may ship in multiple boxes that can arrive on different days.
How do you clean your loveseat?
Spot-clean your loveseat when needed, using a fabric cleaner for upholstery or a damp cloth with mild detergent for faux leather. For genuine leather, use a damp cloth dipped in a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water. Be sure to check manufacturer cleaning recommendations before grabbing the cleaning supplies as some models may have more specific requirements.
