Argos has revealed a 30% increase in shoppers searching for its best-selling Cuddle Chairs, ahead of Valentine’s Day.

According to research carried out by the retailer, there have been more sales of the plush, larger-than-normal armchairs compared to two-seater sofas.

The cuddle chairs - referred to as ‘loveseats’ by a number of other retailers - are designed to fit two people, but aren’t as spacious as a small sofa.

A cuddle chair is not only great for those wanting extra intimacy this Valentine’s Day, but they are practical too.

They are a great furniture option for smaller spaces, whether that is a room, or to fit in an alcove.

Cuddle chairs come in a variety of colours, textures, and styles. While some may prefer leather or velvet, others may want buttoned designs, or simplistic creations.

Shoppers can also decide on different legs too, whether that is long stands, wooden ball-like props, or flat to the floor.

There is a vast selection of styles to choose from to suit all budgets, and we have found the best ones to splash out on, which will turn all visitors green with envy.
