Petite Seats

Over the weekend I was shopping at West Elm and bought some new bedding { more on that soon! } anyways while I was there I sat and on their petite Sutton Sofette. But I'll just call it a settee, oh how love its size its so perfect and modern. I just adore the settee, and truth be told, I've been wanting to put one in our third still unseen bedroom. Our third bedroom has a sliding glass door that lead out into our back yard, hopefully in the Spring it will be replaced with French Doors. Until I get around to cleaning out our 'junk room' sometime in the next few weeks, lets dream a little shall we?

I also like this settee in a fun circle print, subtle yet stylish.

I also like the Marcel Mini Sofa from Pottery Barn, not as much as the clean lines for the West Elm settee

Now for some further lusting, I adore how these settees look in homes. More on the feminine side as far as the shape goes.

I pretty much like the entire room below!! The tufting on the settee is divine. The blueish secretary desk is a amazing, the drapes the fabric on the chair the area rug!! Wow I just love how well the colors live together.

Of course the ultimate dream would be to purchase and amazing settee off my beloved Craigslist for next to nada then have it reupholstered in amazing fabric and make then make some pretty pillows for it. Unfortunately I've been coming up empty handed on my local Craigslist. 


What piece of furniture have you been lusting after for your home?

  1. Ahh, my lust list is long. As far as furniture goes, I'd like sofas that have cleaner lines (kind of like the West Elm settee!) and a new breakfast room table - something Saarinen-esque but a lot less pricey. :)

  2. I've always wanted a settee. Between your post and Get It Girls post today I'm about ready to change my entire living room.
    I'm lusting after a funky side table for my living room seating area. Tired of my boring glass table I've had for way too long that used to be my bedroom nightstand.

  3. I LOVE baby sofas! This would be adorable in a bedroom. I can't wait to see what you have done in there!

  4. I love that tufted one. I typically think settees are too traditional for my house, but the west elm version is very contemporary. It would look great.

  5. Kate, I agree while I love the tufted look I also feel its to formal for my home. Hoping the CL gods drop love my way with a mid century modern settee! One can dream right :)

  8. Loving the paisley one. Any of those would be perfect for a guest room or even in a master bedroom if there was space.

    I've been lusting after chairs for my great room for about a year-just ordered them about 3 weeks ago though. Can't wait!

  9. How fun are these? I have been on the hunt for the perfect chair for the master bedroom and so far have come up empty handed. So the search continues!

  11. I absolutely love the furniture in these pics, I need a sofa and would love to add an ottoman and bench to our media room, I am lusting after a few pieces I have seen. I need a sideboard for our formal dining room, a dresser for our master, and two armless chairs for the formal living area.

  13. I love the way these look, but I don't know if I would ever sit on them for any length of time. I have a Rowe sofa being made for my tv room right now - can't wait to get it in a couple weeks!!

  14. Just stumbled on your blog, Katrina--
    We too are dreaming of a settee (although we've given it the less genteel name of 'dining sofa')for our kitchen. It would need to be tall enough and firm enough to provide comfortable seating at the table, but inviting enough to offer a place to linger with a newspaper and a latte. For ease of access it should have fairly small armrests. I think that last tufted one on your post would be ideal if the seat were high enough. We're just beginning our kitchen so we'll have a while to find the perfect thing.
