Do You Have a Settee?

The house I grew up in had "a living room" and "a den." The den was the room with plush couches and a television that we spent every weeknight in. The living room had a gorgeous settee and a pair of Louis XIV chairs that were absolutely uncomfortable, and thus the room was practically never used.

Since the advent of the television, a lot of these rigid, salon-style furniture types have fallen by the wayside. It's a little sad since their curvy wooden frames and tufted buttons are so stunning, but they really are impractical if you're planning to watch a marathon of Real Housewives. Are you keeping the settee alive and well in your home?

Although we never had a settee in our condo we kept it modern and sleek which looked great but wasn't the most comfortable when you are watching tv. Now that we're in a house and the condo furniture looks dumb in it, we will be furnishing it with comfy furniture only!

I hate the name. And no, I don't - not my style

Settee's are for sitting on and having tea. I'm English, lounging on your furniture was never the norm there until recently and even still when I last lived there people don't simply lie around on their furniture.

I do. I love it.

I never knew that's what these were called! I had two of these, but I just sold one and now I'm down to one. I have just been calling it my "granny couch." The one I got rid of wasn't very comfortable, but the one I'm keeping is!
