We swooned when we first saw this vintage settee. Being design-obsessed, we immediately began to wonder where this beautiful piece could fit within our own homes. Yes, we have a problem — ahem — that was sort of the impetus for this site, after all. Still, it got us thinking. A settee is a rather unique item and its place is not automatic, nor inflexible. Which room is the best location for this piece? As it turns out, a settee can work wonderfully and practically in every room in your house.
