A settee can be such a fun and refreshing piece of furniture within a room where we are so used to seeing the typical sofa and love seat combo. A settee can really become the star of the room or blend beautifully with it’s surroundings. Their versatility in shape, color, style, and pattern even will surely appeal to anyone’s taste.

What is not to love about this settee! This is a great example of how a traditional shape with its details brings character into the room but can also be updated with a fresh pop of color.

In an Entry Way

In a Bedroom


Whether a cozy side vignette or a seating area at the end of the bed, why not incorporate a settee in your bedroom?
