Are you looking for spacious and sleek comfort for two? 

While a loveseat might be too cramped and a sectional too roomy, a 2-seater sofa is the perfect option for two loved ones. 

2-seater sofas offer each individual their own spacious cushion, eliminating the unnecessary barrier of a third middle seat. This is ideal for shared activities such as watching a movie or chatting over a glass of wine.

Beyond the comfortable seating arrangement, 2-seater sofas knock out the clutter by portraying sleek style with two clean lines. 

At La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston, clients often ask us about our 2-seater sofa selection. From stationary to reclining, La-Z-Boy has several 2-seater sofas to choose from in a variety of styles. There is something for everyone.

What is a 2-Seater Sofa?

Before we dive into the 2-seater sofa selection at La-Z-Boy, you may be wondering what exactly a 2-seater sofa is? How does a 2-seater sofa differ from a regular sofa?

A 2-seater sofa is no different from a regular sofa other than the fact that it features 2 seat cushions instead of three. 

A traditional sofa is constructed with three seat cushions catering to 3-person seating. Alternatively, a 2-seater sofa is better suited for the shared comfort of two.


Average Dimensions of a 2-Seater Sofa

A common misconception about 2-seater sofas is that they are smaller than regular 3-cushion sofas. 

This is not true. In fact, 2-seater sofas are about the same length and width as regular sofas. 

A 2-seater sofa simply features two longer seat cushions compared to a regular sofa that features three shorter seat cushions. Regardless of the number of cushions, the total seating surface area typically remains the same.

On average, the length of a 2-seater sofa is about 82.5 inches. The seat cushions tend to be about 40 inches long, give or take a couple of inches for the arms of the sofa. 

In comparison, the seat cushions on a regular sofa are about 26 inches long.

Difference Between a 2-Seater Sofa & a Loveseat

2-seater sofas may appear similar to loveseats, especially when browsing for furniture online as you are unable to assess the true size of a unit. At a glance, they both have two seat cushions, ideal for the shared comfort of two love birds.

In reality, the 2-seater sofa is much larger than a loveseat. 

With less surface area and smaller cushions, the loveseat remains true to its name. The two individuals that share a loveseat have no choice but to snuggle up to one another. Alternatively, a 2-seater sofa is actually quite spacious. Allowing two individuals lots of room to sprawl out on the same piece of furniture.
