Looking For the Perfect Settee

July 19, 2016

My middle name as been settee this week! I’ve been looking for a streamlined settee or bench for my own living room, and more plush comfy, small sofas for two clients. Settee sounds like a decorator’s word, but it’s a good one to know when searching for furniture online. Typically more options will come up when you search settee, rather than small sofas, or even bench. I particularly love One Kings Lane for searching for small sofas, because on the left side of the screen you can easily modify your search by a sliding scale of width or depth! This is a major time saver as it eliminates all the options that don’t work for you.

Settees are perfect for small space living, sitting rooms, bedrooms or in my case when you’ve got an empty wall and room that needs more seating, but a typical sofa is just too big and two chairs don’t look quite right.

Here are some pretty little scenes with settees I love.

Here are some of my favorite small sofa finds this week:small-sofas-centered-by-design

Can you guess which option is going in my living room!? Which look is your favorite? There are so many other great options out there, but I think these four work in countless scenarios.
