Smaller than a sofa, more elegant than a loveseat and sturdier than a bench, the settee is a multitalented piece of furniture. Designed to seat two, it’s the perfect seating solution in tight spots. In larger rooms, it can be the building block of a secondary grouping. And it can be put to use in most any room of your home.
Here are five ways to use a settee in your home:
1. A settee instantly transforms an eating nook into a dining banquette. In pale green, our Thread & Feather Carly Settee is sophisticated and crisply tailored. With an ivory contrast welt, it creates a welcoming breakfast retreat where your family will enjoy a cup of Earl Gray and the New York Times.
2. A settee is the perfect seating solution for a reading loft or dressing room. Our Style Collection Topaz Settee features a single bench seat cushion and a button tufted back. Upholstered in an ikat pattern of soft orange, green and yellow, it beckons you to curl up with a fashion magazine or laptop.
3. A settee looks elegant when placed at the foot of a bed. And our Thread & Feather Lauren Settee is a perfect accompaniment to your master suite. Exquisitely tailored with a dressmaker skirt in a mocha colored fabric with an ivory contrast welt, this furniture starlet will never go out of style.
4. A settee is a welcome addition to a nicely sized foyer, where it offers a place to take off your boots and put on your slippers. The antique linen finish of our Belmar Settee is a classic look, greeting guests in style. Its diminutive size won’t overpower the room.
5. Finally, an armless settee is an unexpected alternative to the standard piano bench. Our Giselle Settee provides an air of sophistication to a rousing rendition of Chopsticks, with nail head trim that contrasts the charcoal upholstery. A patterned pair of pillows provides added interest as well as added back support.
