I am crazy for settees...it seems no matter where I am I gravitate towards them in many different styles and fabrications. Whether your style is traditional, contemporary, European or anything in between, you are sure to find one that will fit in perfectly!
One of my favorite blogaeratti, Valorie, who is the Visual Vamp's has this lovely in her home in New Orleans. The overall style, the nailheads, the pillows...hey Valorie, are you in Uptown or the Garden District?
Gustavian period sofa, Circa 1800...
...Swedish sofa Circa 1920.
These two lovelies come from Brooke at Velvet and Linen's
Swedish Antique store in Los Angeles, CA, visit her website here. If my decor only leant itself to these I would have them! But you know how it is when over the years you have acquired things, it is not easy to "start over"!
This is my own...
I think the carved wood on this is just beautiful. The nailheads add great detail. It is delicate and I like that.
What do you think about this angled leather settee? It is elm wood with original leather in Albertina style. It actually comes from a noble house in the Bologna-Parma area of Italy, Circa 1830.
This is vintage bamboo....I can see some bright fun fabric....perhaps my new favorite color....apple green!
Now where would you put these Arts and Crafts Settees?
These are neo-Egyptian style from England, Cica 1910. I really like these, they are a bit edgy and fun!
This is a "to die for" French Napolean III black painted settee with gilt and polychrome and inlaid mother of pearl. Gorgeous.
How about this folding daybed?
I have never seen anything like this, have you? Have I been hiding under a rock somewhere?
This is cool...my hubby would just love it. Our basement pool room is "his" trophy room with hides and antlers from his hunts and this would be fab there! PETA don't come after me. :>)
A Victorian Horn Settee.
This would be so much fun out on the deck for an outdoor living space. Love the wheels and that there is lighting for reading!
What do you think? Do you have jsut the right place for any of these?
