Your guide to the best love chairs of 2022

The love story of love chairs dates right back to the 17th century. Renowned for their comfortable nature, compact design and inviting appeal, love chairs are the perfect spot for couples to sit closely together.


Join us as we spread the love and dive into our “everything you need to know” guide.

What does a love chair look like?

Distinctively compact, a love chair looks just like a small sofa, though it’s specifically intended for two people to sit snuggly.


Love chairs are designed for couples and loved ones to sit comfortably side-by-side. They’re wonderful for an area in your home where a larger sofa won’t quite fit but you’d still like a place to sit, such as a snug or even in a bedroom. 

Why is it called a love chair?


Love chairs get their name from their unique design that offers an intimate seating arrangement for loved-up couples to share.  

 

 

How to style a love chair

A love chair can effortlessly create a relaxing corner, inject colour and style into your home, as well being a practical way to add additional seating.


Once you’ve invested, you may be wondering how best to style your love chair. How about opting for a Parisian style?


Channelling the city of love only seems right! Pairing your love chair with romantic blush pink accessories, such as a chunky throw or velvet scatter cushions for a certain je ne sais quoi. 


Or perhaps you’re looking to go for more of an Industrial style, with monochromatic furnishings and complimentary wooden furniture. Cool-toned grey fabrics work perfectly for this look as they act as a neutral backdrop of which you can experiment with. 


The beauty of a love seat is you can interchange the cushions and any other soft furnishings you like to have strewn across the arms of the chair to create different looks depending on personal style or current trends.

How you typically use the space 


What is a love seat called?

Also referred to as a snuggle or cuddler chair, a love seat has several names but essentially they all mean the same. It’s also synonymous with a small two-seater sofa as it typically has two upholstered seats.


What are snuggle chairs?

A little bigger than an armchair though smaller than a sofa, snuggle or snuggler chairs are incredibly versatile and another name for a love seat or cuddle chair.


As the name suggests they’re the perfect spot to snuggle up with your significant other, or if you fancy curling up in front of the TV when you get the evening to yourself. Snuggle chairs typically only have one cushion making every position comfortable. 


Can 2 people sit on a cuddle chair?

Yes, snuggly!


As a cuddle chair is designed for couples, it’ll certainly fit two people on, though you will be sat pretty closely together. 


What are big round chairs called?

That’ll be a twister chair.


Loved for their versatility and sometimes referred to as a swivel chair, twister chairs offer maximum comfort.


As the name suggests you can twist and swivel in them as the seat rotates 360 degrees to the left or right. The perfect option for those who find movement comforting and relaxing.


They come complete with foam-filled seat cushions that keep their circular shape and provide the right amount of cushioning so you’re free to sway in any direction you wish.
