The Stylish Look of a Dining Room Settee

One of my favorite looks that has been popping up a lot in design lately is the use of a settee as seating in a dining room. Mixing up the chairs at the table has always produced some fabulous results, but the introduction of a settee takes this idea to the next level. If you weren’t familiar with the term settee before, here’s the definition:

Settee: a seat for two or more persons, having a back and usually arms, and often upholstered.

Dining room settees add an extra dose of style and elegance to the space. It definitely bumps it up a notch, making the space feel more upscale and gives it a lot more character. There are so many different settees out there to choose from that this look is very versatile and can suit a myriad of styles, as well as different room shapes and sizes. Take a look at these great examples of a dining room settee to get some ideas for your own home.
