I recently purchased a pair of antique/vintage love seats. They are in great shape and I love the boxy Sheraton-like lines.
I thought it would be a good idea to have a pair of love seats because both the front two parlors have limited space in front of the fireplaces. I'm not sure which room they'll go in quite yet, but I hope to re-upholster them in a wonderful fabric. I'm thinking a fabric that has a period look but that is also quite bold, like a toile or a damask.
The existing fabric is in good condition, so there is an option to just slipcover them. But I've learned that the price is about the same for either option. Perhaps I'll re-upholster and then over time, have a slipcover made to use seasonally. I've always loved the idea of having something red to put on a sofa during the Christmas and winter season.
