Loveseat by Jake Phipps

It was the genteel Victorians who originally popularised the loveseat. Courting couples could whisper sweet nothings whilst remaining seated in a state of  chaste restraint. Although we might laugh at such primness and exaggerated propriety, the loveseat remains a powerful symbol of love and romance. The seat’s form suggests the duality of a loving and successful partnership: fundamentally opposed, yet with complimentary principles of balance and unity. Facing in opposite directions, a couple can share a conversation, with their different perspectives providing a more complete outlook on the world around them. Materials: Cedar / English Oak. Dimensions: 50cm x 50cm x 125cm. Designed by Jake Phipps and manufactured by Riva1920. Wow!
