With its petite dimensions, a love seat is the perfect couch for small apartments. In a larger home, pair it with a sofa to create a roomy seating area that's not too matchy-matchy. We recommend a style with a tight back since loose cushions can look messy on a small frame.
A classic tailored style with exposed legs (sometimes called a settee) is the most adaptable type of love seat.
