If you are looking for a perfect addition to your living room and you love antique pieces around your home, an antique settee may suit you well. This piece hails way back from the 16th and 17th centuries where they started as plain chairs and not upholstered. It is basically looking like two chairs put all together to make it a two or three-seater seat. They are usually upholstered in very stylish manner and design to make them comfortable seats and great decorative furniture as well.
Antique settees will give any living room the look and feel of a semi-rustic and classic home. Their backrest and seats are well-upholstered and the arms and legs sometimes come in wonderful designs. It has a little resemblance to a chesterfield chair where the arms are in rolled designs and the back and seat are intricately upholstered. But an antique settee is like two of them put together. And it is antique. These give an antique settee its character different from any other furniture. Ever since its birth way back, it has maintained its breakthrough in the furniture industry because of its stylish charm.
Because of the status it has claimed in the industry, an antique settee may cost you a little more than any regular sofa. So if you want to own one, you have to seriously consider some factors. First, you have to make sure that your budget allows it. Second, settle for a design or color that you specifically look for. Third and most importantly, make sure that the settee is really antique but it is still durable and usable at the same time. And then, compare prices.
Check your antique boutiques or your internet antique shop. Do not settle for anything less because quality is your best bet on an antique settee.
