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.
