Decorate: Loveseats and Settees

Since this month we are talking about Love, I figured a great place to start would be with those coziest of little couches — loveseats and settees. Loveseats being a bit squashier, more like a miniature couch, and settees being a bit more upright and firm, but both seating two.

If I were only going to purchase one thing for a new apartment or first home, I would make it a loveseat. In a small space it works on its own as a couch, but it can easily be moved and take on different roles over the years. Use one to flank a larger sofa in a big living room; place one at the foot of your bed; pull one up to the dining table; soften up your office; put one in a large entry or mudroom…and that’s just to name just a few other uses!

No.1: Amadine Settee | No.2: Antique Carved Settee | No.3: Lampert Loveseat | No.4: Hudson Settee | No.5: Portman Settee | No.6: Winifred Settee | No.7: Astrid Settee | No.8: Olivia Loveseat | No.9: Murphy 58″ Sofa

I rounded up a few more of my favorites above — note that the Hudson Settee (No.4) is less than $300 and the Portman Settee (No.5) is under $600, both from Target; and the Olivia Loveseat from Home Decorator’s Collection in under $500. Hooray for the cheap and chic! Which is your favorite?

    #9 would be the most impractical purchase of my life because of very small studio condo but I just love it!! I think No 3. was the couch in Sex and the City 2… very pretty too!

    I like number 8 for 2 reasons: first it has slipcovers, a must for my house, that gets dirty so fast. Second I love the chocolate color. T

    I want #9, though if you had asked me a year and a half ago I would have asked for #2! You would like the ones they sell at http://www.bolia.dk awesome stuff there!

    I vote for #2 – it has classic lines, yet contemporary, and it has arms – a must for me.
