Description

Settees are a type of seating furniture, often seen as a blend between a couch and a chair. Typically designed to seat two people, they're more compact than traditional sofas, making them ideal for smaller spaces or as complementary seating in larger rooms. Settees come in various styles: some might have a high, ornate back with intricate woodwork, while others offer a more minimalist, modern look with clean lines. Materials range from plush upholsteries to sleek leathers. Some settees also feature armrests, though not always. Commonly found in living rooms, lounges, or entryways, settees provide both functionality and a touch of elegance.

History
History

Settees originated in Europe, gaining prominence during the 17th and 18th centuries. Initially used by the elite, they were ornate, reflecting the grandeur of the period. As time passed, their design evolved, becoming more accessible and diverse in style. By the 19th century, settees had become popular household items, with designs catering to various tastes and social classes. Their compact size made them ideal for different settings, from grand salons to modest homes, solidifying their place as versatile and cherished seating furniture.

Future
Future

Settees are embracing modern lifestyles, adapting to the dynamics of urban living. As smaller living spaces become the norm, settees with multifunctional designs, such as built-in storage or convertible features, will be sought after. Materials emphasizing sustainability, like recycled fabrics or eco-friendly dyes, will gain traction. With personalization in vogue, custom-made settees tailored to individual tastes will be more common. In shared spaces and open floor plans, settees will play a pivotal role, offering compact seating solutions while maintaining aesthetic appeal, aligning comfort with contemporary design.

Common Questions
Common Questions
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.
