Skyline Settee Review

It came!

I ordered it a month ago on amazon, and was given the timeline of its delivery anytime in the month of January, so it's nice to have it early on!

As the pic shows, it's a beautiful rich blue color and has a non-bulky, stylish silhouette.  Despite its small appearance it fits two people very well; Karl and I can both sit comfortably on it.  The tall exposed legs allows it to make the room still feel big and airy, and on the practical side makes for easy vacuuming (and not hide the rug).  Add in the very nice quality velvet fabric and it's a pleaser.

It feels very sturdy and has firm but comfortable cushioning.  I've spent several hours using it as a reading chair, and I've grown to prefer it to our sofa whenever we're not watching a movie.

The weight (approx 70 lbs.) is just right so it does not shift when you sit down, but remains an easy piece to pick up and move if you need to.

Advantage of a Settee: I like that a settee keeps its functional use by being a piece which can easily be incorporated into multiple kinds of rooms.  Down the line when we move to our own home (someday) and if we end up switching some furniture in the living room, this settee can be extra seating for the dining room, bedroom, or the office, so I know I can get a lot of mileage out of it.

Overall, I'm super delighted with it and would highly recommend it!

Note: If you're interested, here's a direct link to the settee:

Fyi, this is an affiliate link, and I get paid a percentage if you buy it through this link. I did not get paid by Amazon or Skyline to endorse this settee, but wanted to pass along a product I am happy with. :)

  1. It also promotes good posture with the firm padding and perfect back angle :-)

    1. Indeed! I do need all the help I can get with posture!

  2. I'm looking for a piece just like this to go opposite some tufted chairs I purchased for the new house. I like the West Elm Elton Settee, but felt the tufting was too much opposite my chairs that are already sporting tufts. Thank you for the review and link! I will consider it among some other settees / apartment sofas I'm looking at. :)
