Another Country Hardy Loveseat
A graceful compact bench made of solid oak, perfect as a standalone piece or tucked around a dining table.
Essentially a two-person seat, the ‘Loveseat’ most likely originated from the need to accommodate the wider dresses that were in fashion towards the end of the 1700s. They began to be marketed as ‘loveseats’ in the early 1800s.
Not to be confused with the tête-à-tête, also a two-person seat (arranged in an S shape) conceived for face to face conversation, also known as a kissing bench, most likely originating from France that became popular during the Victorian era, albeit in an upholstered form.
