A settee is defined as a long bench with a back, an upholstered seat for more than one person or a small sofa. Basically it is a small sofa which has armrests but there are many designs of backless and armless settees as well. Usually a settee seats two persons . The earliest settees date back to the 17th century .

Settee and loveseats – what is the difference between them?

As described above, the settee is defined as a bench with a back or a small or medium-sized sofa with armrests. A loveseat is designed to seat only two people or a couple and that’s why the piece of furniture got its name. Despite that it can be found in almost any style, most loveseats are easily defined for the distinctive sections for each person to sit. And this is the difference – the settee may seat more than two people while a loveseat is designed for two. Both, settees and loveseats, can be purchased as individual pieces of furniture or as part of a living room set which contains a larger couch, an armchair or any other, depending on the design. Both types can be found upholstered, or partially upholstered with different fabrics or leather.

Settee and loveseats in the home interior

 Settee and loveseats have found their place in the home interior long ago. They look exquisite and elegant and add style to the home. When choosing a settee or a loveseat you should have a clear idea where you want to place it, how much available space you have and how it will fit with the rest of the interior, if you pick up an individual piece which is not a part of a set. It is not advisable to choose a loveseat as an extra bed as it is too small to fit an adult. Settee in the corridor utilizes the space while a bedroom settee provides some seating and chatting space for the couple. The variety in styles and designs is great and differs from traditional to modern.
