you may think of the settee as a thing of the past, but as you saw in yesterday’s post, it’s just not so. the settee, which has been around a while — dating back to the 17th century in Europe — is really such an ideal seating solution for small spaces. the settee looks lovely in an entryway, a reading nook, and across a larger sofa for additional seating, but my favorite use for a settee is at a dining room table — such a comfy spot for guests to sit around the dinner table if your settee is just the right height. it’s also a really interesting way to create an eclectic and unexpected mix with your modern pieces. a little curve, a little tufted plush love goes a long way on style. you can find them in all shapes and sizes these days from vintage to brand new — i love west elm’s elton settee, and the velvet Orianna and astrid settees from anthropologie are classic beauties and come in a bounty of beautiful colors. go on — have a settee, won’t you?

  1. Really like the Settee pictured above with the wooden legs. Not sure if you have any idea as to where that specific one was from?

    Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.
