The classic seating piece is always at home in a living room or a family area. But it can also moonlight as comfortable seating in the dining room. We love how this tailored sofa looks paired with traditional chairs in a light-filled eating area.
While this comfortable cousin of the sofa will always have a place in front of a television, it’s also a great choice for any corner where you want to sit and relax. A long cushy sectional and a few stools crafts a place for family to gather, read magazines, do homework, or play cards.
Their diminutive size makes settees or love seats a natural choice for a small space like an apartment. They are also a natural fit for areas that need a little “something.” Here, a settee is perfect for an awkward corner space in a bedroom.
The Chaise Longue
Often found in a vanity area or a sitting room, these very ladylike pieces can play a chic role in today’s modern homes. Try one at the base of the stairwell in an entry. With just a few pillows and a throw, you create a cozy welcoming scene for guests as well as an impromptu seating area.
