Usually 53 to 60 inches in width, and 34 to 38 inches in height and depth, loveseats complete a living room set without taking up too much space. As probably the largest piece of furniture in the room, loveseats play a pivotal role in the look of the entire living space.
To bring loveseats into the focus of the room, choose upholstery or slip covers that will surely pop out. For example, if your room is stark white, your sofa should be a bold color to provide contrast. Keep other furniture simple and coordinate them with the room's color rather than stand out like the loveseat. This way, you can create the illusion of an expansive space around a single piece of furniture.
From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.
