Loveseats for Outdoor Decorating

The loveseat takes an important place between the single chair and the three-seater couch in room design. It’s compact yet companionable, fitting into small spaces while holding space for a couple. We often think of loveseats for indoor decorating, but here at EcoChic we want to remind you that loveseats belong outdoors too. Many pieces that might be called “benches” are actually sweet seats for two.

Here are a few chic ways that you can use an outdoor loveseat on your patio or deck.

 

One Loveseat, Instant Conversation Area

A solo loveseat might sound like a contradiction, but all you need for an inviting entertainment spot or intimate nook is one piece of furniture that holds two people.

 

Many EcoChic benches are interesting enough to hold their own in an outdoor space—no additional accessories required. The King Fisher Bench has a spare silhouette with an intricate metal frame that highlights the monotone blue of the reclaimed wood.

The Atlantis Bench is dramatic in a different way, with a rainbow palette and sophisticated scrollwork. We’re tempted to change its name to the Atlantis Loveseat to remind you of its friendly dimensions.

Loveseats + Chairs = Party Time

Here’s a setup that incorporates loveseats in a gathering place for a larger group. You can add matched chairs or contrasting pieces to turn a tête-à-tête into a fête.

Our EcoChic collections have a number of matched loveseats and chairs, including the charming Dock Holiday style, which comes as both a bench and a chair.

Loveseat with Side Tables for a More Formal Look

Adding two side tables to an outdoor loveseat creates a vignette that echoes a more formal indoor look, elevating a space from casual to classy. We’ve matched the Bay Dreamer Bench with two Second Wind Side Tables to create the Bay Dreamer Ensemble, and you can see the impact in this breathtaking rooftop location.

Even a simple loveseat design like this one is instantly punched up with the addition of matching side tables.

Hopefully our playful rebranding of benches as loveseats has inspired you to bring some of their cozy glamour into your outdoor spaces.
