In this post: If you’re looking for a French settee bench with great style at a reasonable price, this shopping guide offers many affordable options.⇒
I’ve got a thing for settees.
I think it dates back to photo I saw many years ago that embodied my idea of sheer elegance. It was an English country style, much darker than the look I prefer now, but it was dripping pedigree and I was hooked.
I’ve wanted a real antique settee ever since. Whether English Country, Swedish Gustavian or French style, I love them all!
But the reality is they’re quite expensive and so I’ve lately found that there are many reproductions that are way more affordable and give a similar look.
Not that long ago when I was decorating our guest room, I found this great little bench that would be perfect for overnighters who needed a place to sit or lay out their things, more than they needed a full chest of drawers.
I ordered the one piece and it was perfect for the room. Then I moved on.
I added a new headboard and I love our linens, but something about the room felt unfinished.
I think I knew all along it needed something at the foot of the bed.
I tried a bistro table and chairs and imagined an ottoman bench, but finally I realized what I really wanted was a French settee bench.
In fact, one very much like the one in the guest room, but that one was no longer available.
And this is what has led me to this latest shopping guide: Where to find an affordable French settee bench. There are pieces below that would make great dining benches, and others that would look great in an entryway.
But the one that will sit at the foot of my bed? Well, that I haven’t decided yet…
Take a look at the selections below and see what you think. Go slow and explore them all; there are many options here to consider. Then let me know which one you think might work in a bedroom, cozily placed at the foot of the bed.
Or let me know which you think might work for you! I’d so love to hear which are your favorites!
