A staple component of most living room sets, a classic loveseat may feature detached cushions, rolled or straight arms, and tapered legs or tailored skirting. Often styled with accent pillows or a lovely throw, classic loveseats enhance the look of traditional decor.

For smaller apartments, a streamlined classic loveseat with a low profile, like a mid-century modern piece, helps spaces feel more open. To get the full traditional effect, look for time-honored classic loveseats with nailhead trim, welting details, or wooden frames to capture the vibe.
