At Wayfair we have loveseats in every style, including your style. From mission to modern, and country to coastal our selection of thousands of loveseats includes the couch and color that's perfect for your home. When shopping for a loveseat to buy for your living room, consider the back style of the furniture as well as the appearance. While every loveseat is a sofa designed for two, they come with several distinct back styles that affect the comfort and appearance of the furniture.
Cushion Back Loveseat: The standard sofa style back, a cushion back has removable cushions on the back of the sofa. These cushions (typically there are two in a loveseat) are usually not attached to the loveseat back, unlike a Tight Back style. The Cushion Back is the most popular back style.
Split Back Loveseat: In the Split Back style, the loveseat is designed to look almost like two armchairs fused together. This is most commonly done for reclining furniture where each seat is capable of reclining independently. Most Split Back loveseats still appear as one continuous sofa with no arm rest between the seats, but some designs do have a center arm rest.
Tight Back Loveseat: Unlike the Cushion Back, or indeed most styles of loveseat, the Tight Back does not have any kind of removable backing, and the back is often flat with no protruding cushioning at all. The Tight Back design is most common in the modern furniture style, and Tight Back has the advantage of being less bulky and appearing to occupy less space for the footprint.
Tufted Back Loveseat: Tufted Back loveseats have the unique tufted style. These sofas can have tight backs (as pictured to the left) or have tufted cushions. The tufted design features many large buttons that depress the surface of the loveseat back, and can be used on both fabric and leather furniture.
Pillow Back Loveseat: In a Pillow Back loveseat, the cushions are designed to look like a collection of larger decorative pillows, rather than the traditional square or rounded square couch cushion shape. Some Pillow Back designs feature the standard two cushions, but with the cushions arched to look more like a pillow and be less square in shape. Pillow Back loveseats are often decorated with additional decorative pillows in accent colors.
Camel Back Loveseat: The Camel Back loveseat is so named for the distinct arch in the back of the sofa, much like a camel's hump. And like a camel, the Camel Back design can have a single central arch, or can have two separate arches on either end of the loveseat. Camel Back loveseats usually, though not always, have a more distinct back that is visible above the top of the cushions.
iContemporary: Contemporary pieces are very neutral in their design and will easily fit into numerous interiors. They are not overly decorated and in general will feature simple and clean lines with smooth surfaces without any carving or adornment. Color palette relies heavily on brown, taupe, cream and pure white. Natural fabrics such as silk, wool, linen, and cotton are used for their textural aspect and inherent neutral hues.Modern: A focus on geometry and angular shapes is a hallmark of modern design. Generally, this style consists of furniture made of glass, metal, synthetic material, leather, glossy finish material and a straining after effect. Wood is almost never to be found as material. The dominating colors are white, black and grey, yet designers create an extraordinary look through shapes and patterns. They move away from tradition and thus stick out. Everything that looks like it follows a non-traditional design falls under this category. Lighting is industrial looking. Textiles will be plain and made of natural materials.Vintage: Vintage pieces are reproductions of furniture or decor designed to create a feeling of nostalgia. Decorative accents often feature authentic eye-catching graphics and designs, often with a distressed or faded finish making them look aged and worn around the edges.

Seating follows rounded shapes with soft leather, woven seats or printed fabric on a traditional frame. Bright colours are uncommon.Asian inspired: Asian design is a fusion of several different styles that range from the Japanese and the Chinese to exotic Indian themes. Yet, for most, it is often dominated by oriental influences that have originated in the Far East several centuries ago. Asian designs and themes are largely inspired by the colors of nature, and often decorations mimic scenic landscapes and reinterpret natural colors to suit the interior.Bohemian: Bohemian (or Boho) style aims to stand out from the crowd and represents a counter culture based on creativity and poverty combined. Boho style often focuses on influences from Africa and the Middle East, regions such as Morocco with bright patterned items and geometric shapes. Boho style differentiates itself from Asian Inspired as it is far more colorful and often plays with clashing colors in order to make a bold statement.Mid-century: This style features geometric prints, and simple box-shaped furniture that is often low-slung. Color palette showcases bright yellows, greens and oranges as well as more neutral greys and wood tones. Other items feature themes of items that were popular from the 1930s-1960s.Traditional: Traditional pieces are often made of dark or polished wood with carved detailing forming smooth shapes and lines around tops and legs.

Pieces will use country themes such as farm or animals and produce and use woven materials or rusty metals but can also be seen in a contemporary setting. Palette is made up of natural, earthy colors.Industrial: Practical and minimalist, industrial style is all about clean lines and raw materials. Industrial spaces often incorporate these three elements: metal, wood, and exposed or weathered features, such as bricks. Prints hint at a different, past use for the materials. Typical elements are: wheels, eye-catching cables, chipped off paint, metal pipes and ledges, patina.Country/Cottage: Generally exemplified by feminine furniture, muted colors, milk-paint finishes and vintage fabrics.

Pieces with straight lines, painted finishes and very little ornamentation. Accessories include baskets, carved wooden bowls, pottery, pewter and hand-forged metal accents. Floral, checked and striped patterns printed on fabric.Coastal: This style draws inspiration from the seaside and coastal themes. As a result the palette is made up of cool blues, whites, sandy neutrals and grey metals. Crisp cotton and linen fabrics, bold stripes, bead board, unfinished metal, rope and reclaimed wood are the main elements. Motifs such as shells, coral, sea life, and nautical instruments finish the look.Glam: Rich colors, bold geometric shapes, sparkling and ornate detailing. The sharp lines of this style can be found on light fixtures, patterns, mirrors, and more. Mirrored products will fall under this style. Purple, gold, and black is a common palette for this décor scheme.Scandinavian: Keep it simple - this style creates clarity, light and ease, is based on geometric shapes, and clear and simple outlines dominate. A lot of white creates an effortless concept. Scandinavians like things being practical. Decorative colors are never harsh, yet rather muted. Patterns are used rather sparingly, and generally in form of stripes, plaid and flowers. Light wood types, such as spruce, birch or pine are preferred. They create a warm atmosphere and a natural freshness, while also being regenerating materials.

This association with old English inspired outdoor activities can be seen in preppy fashion, through stripes and colors, equestrian clothing, plaid shirts, field jackets, and nautical-themed accessories. These are then carried through to interior details and accents. Key characteristics: multicolored stripes, plaid print, monogrammed details, mixing fabrics, clashing colors and patterns, and sporting memorabilia.Mission/Shaker: This style was originated in the late 19th century and emphasizes simple horizontal and vertical flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood.
