Furniture Style Series -Settees with French Flair

Julie's Oversized French Style Settee

Tufted Vintage Painted Settee

Settee in Italian Damask
During this next week, I will be featuring various styles of settees.  I always think of settees as more structurally interesting and often smaller than loveseats and certainly smaller than sofas.  I have found, however, that the various histories I reviewed seem to intermingle the three types of furniture.  For my purposes (and all the "settees" I have sold over the years), I am choosing to be more specific about what is or is not a settee.  Perfect examples are French style settees - showing more curve and often more woodwork than most.  They work well in any setting - I love putting these more curvaceous and traditional gems with straight lined furniture in a more contemporary setting.  Examples shown are all sold.
