I need a settee for my dining room table. The end chairs are a modern version of a wing chair and I want a settee on one side that offers equally comfortable seating. (check back tomorrow for pictures of the table/chairs - didn't plan my posts well). The poor people on the other side of the table are out of luck. Get to dinner early or sit on the uncomfortable side.
I found this settee at Pier 1 that is the exact shape I want...but am not super crazy about the colors:
I refuse to pay full price for a piece of furniture that is not exactly what I want. I will pay $30.00 at Goodwill for one I will makeover but new pieces need to scream PERFECT. I did find one that was pretty darn close for $25.00 on Craigslist that I could slipcover. I passed it over because I had no way to get it home and I was tired of obligating my friends to tote my stuff. It is now the one that got away. Every other settee is antique, victorian, or just plain strange.
I will continue hunting though.....just needed to grieve the one that got away for a moment first.
