One of the downsides of IKEA products is that, unless you want to spend more on IKEA‘s furniture building service, you must assemble it yourself. While many find the directions easy to read and follow, others find the minimal directions frustrating. The cushions come vacuum sealed and require two to three days to inflate fully before they can be used and the sofa cover must be ironed which is no small task.
This smaller version of a sofa will sit two people and is perfect for smaller rooms. For more seating in small rooms or even as a conversation area in larger room, two love seats can be positioned facing each other. Love seats are also sometimes referred to as "apartment-sized sofas" as they are a smaller scale and better suited to smaller spaces. Some love seats can also be perfect for bedrooms, kitchens, or entry ways.
The scale of the traditional sofa (in form, not in style) is usually from 6 to 8 feet, although longer, or shorter, sofas can be custom made. The average sofa fits three people comfortably and is the piece most often chosen for the living room. In terms of style, sofas can be found in a wide range. Look for differences in the arms, legs, back, and sofa cushions (loose or attached). Varying upholstery details will also set traditional sofas apart on the showroom floor.
If you have a very small apartment, this little West Elm loveseat can be a perfect addition if you need additional seating in your living space. My flat is small, so I use it as my main places, you can fit two people in, but it most like is made for one person. Honestly, Honestly, It's not too soft because it seems more firm than a normal loveseat, but it helps that it reclines, the legs are only 5" high, so I purchased bed risers to raise it up. I suggest buying a plush ottoman so that you can prop your legs up while you rest.
I like my West Elm loveseat, the only thing I would replace the legs and I did and they are too low to the ground for my husband to bend so I bought legs for the loveseat that is higher and substituted it. Now it is perfect although a bit smaller than I expected, more like a large chair, very low to the ground - legs are about 5" tall. I will be acquiring some 7" bed risers to use on this, sufficient but recognize, you get what you pay for.
