Sofas & Loveseats
Set in the heart of the home, sofas and loveseats are where everyone spends their time chatting, watching shows or movies, napping, or playing games. Because these pieces play such an important role in your everyday life, you should choose a sofa or loveseat with a combination of comfort, style, and functionality that meets your needs.
What is the difference between a sofa and a loveseat?
A sofa is the larger of the two seating options and generally seats three people. Loveseats are more compact and generally seat two people. Sofas are an ideal choice as primary seating in a home’s living room and can be matched with a loveseat to offer additional options. Loveseats can also be paired together to create an intimate space for conversations. They also work as the main seating in smaller spaces.
How do I choose a loveseat or sofa for my home?
The first thing to consider is what will fit in your space. If your space is large enough to accommodate generous seating, then a sofa is worth looking at. If you have a smaller space or want to create a cozier atmosphere within a large room, a loveseat, or a pair of them, may be the way to go.
How do I choose a loveseat or sofa style?
Pick designs that reflect your taste and complement your home. Look at what you already have and choose new pieces with similar styles and colors. Abbyson offers everything from plush pieces like the Clarke Leather Sofa to more streamlined and elegant choices like the Cordelia Leather Sofa.
Sofas and loveseats with large cushions and rounded corners like the Marlene Leather Sofa offer comfort and a more casual aesthetic. Pieces like the Grand Chesterfield Leather Sofa bring classic style to your room with details like button tufting, nailhead trim, and a rich leather upholstery. Have fun and be creative with your choices. It’s all about creating the right look for your tastes.
What are important features to look for in a loveseat and sofa?
Sofa Beds: More than just seating, Abbyson loveseats and sofas offer versatility and premium comfort. If guests stay over at your house often, it’s worth considering the Hamilton Storage Sofa Bed Reversible Sectional. This fabric upholstered sofa has a chaise lounge that doubles as storage and a fold out bed for guests.
Reclining Loveseats and Sofas: When looking for comfort and relaxation, think about reclining loveseats and reclining sofas. Our power reclining furniture offers comfort and relaxation with the push of a button and seamlessly blends with our other pieces. They also come in a range of styles including the timeless Edison Power Reclining Sofa, the plush Keizer Leather Power Reclining Sofa, and the modern and clean-lined Layton Leather Power Reclining Sofa. Recliners do need space to extend both in front of and behind the loveseat or sofa, so double check your space to make sure you have room.
What material should I get for my sofa or loveseat?
Fabric and leather upholstery each bring a distinctive look to your space and have characteristics to fit your lifestyle.
Fabric Upholstery: Synthetic fabrics are a good choice for homes with children or pets because the material offers durability and stain resistance. The Roya Fabric Sofa has durable upholstery in a dark colorway and a classic form, making it an ideal choice.
Leather Upholstery: Leather brings a luxurious look and feel to a space. For a modern look, try the tufted Torrington Leather Loveseat. If you want a more traditional style, consider the Landon Leather Sofa. Leather is a natural material and will patina over time, adding to the beauty and softness of your sofa or loveseat.
