A settee, similar to a sofa, is an upholstered type of seating meant for two to three individuals. With origins dating back to 17th century Europe, the settee originally resembled a chaise lounge chair before smaller arm rests were added on both sides. Settees have features such as exposed wooden legs, high backs, and short or low armrests. Considered to have a smaller and more elegant profile than a sofa, the settee is a type of accent seating and is often sold as part of a larger matched set of furniture pieces.

What is a settee?

A settee is a long and slim seat able to fit two or more people. It looks similar to a bench but it features a back, arms, and is upholstered. A settee is often considered an accent piece and such, can be purchased on its own or in addition to a sectional. It is typically more elegant in appearance than other types of seating, but can come in a range of styles.

What is the difference between a settee and a loveseat?

The difference between a settee and a loveseat is that a settee can often seat more than two people and works as part of a living room set. A loveseat is usually a standalone piece of furniture meant to fit two people only.

How do you decorate a settee?

One can decorate a settee by adding pillows either with a bold color, neutral color, or pattern. The pillows can be arranged in a purposeful way, either staggering them or having one pillow be the focal point. A throw blanket can also work in combination with the pillows or on its own.

Eames Sofa Compact

The Eames Sofa Compact is inspired by a built-in sofa designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1940s. It provides ample seating for three people, making it a good choice in small or large spaces. Chrome steel legs add to the sofa’s modern lines and trim profile, while the plush foam cushions provide comfort. Slender and sleek in appearance, the Eames Sofa Compact was intended to be scaled down for rooms too small for a bulky, traditional sofa but without losing the comfort.

The Eames Sofa Compact has an overall height of 35” (89 cm), length of 72.5” (184 cm), and depth of 32.5” (83 cm). The seat height of the Eames Sofa Compact is set at 16” (41 cm).
