Guest Groups: Settees for Each Room and Style

One of my customers recently transferred into a home. She didn’t have to fill it with another storage or desk piece, so we decided it’d be the ideal place for a comfortable sitting room. And because it’s in a major traffic area, we knew the space may only accommodate a compact piece of furniture. Her distance is match by A settee and needs perfectly.

I’ve assembled here some choices that are interpretations of this timeless settee and are all under 60 inches long, which is the perfect length for the end of a bed, a foyer, a kitchen or a little apartment. — Julieann from Jace Interiors and CreateGirl
