What size is a love seat compared to a sofa?

A love seat is larger than an armchair yet smaller than a two-seater sofa. However, they can generally seat two people close together, hence the name love seat – or cuddle couch.

'Sofas are wider than loveseats,' says Paula Cossarini, Product Design Manager at Article. 'Loveseats typically range from approximately 55” - 75” in width, and are great for two people comfortably. Sofas can sit three or more and a pet or two.'
