I was in search of a petite sofa upholstered in an alluring shade of blue for quite some time, so when I spied one for sale on Joss & Main last month, I snatched it up without hesitation.
Often dubbed the “sofette”, these pieces are not as large, long, or bulky as a typical sofa, nor as deep or poufy as most loveseats. Less stiff along the back compared to a traditional settee but still a copycat when it comes to the exposed legs. Sofettes are slim, sophisticated, versatile pieces that will squeeze into just about any space.
Predictably perfect for small space living, in apartments or in bedrooms, more unexpected yet clever in dining spaces – they’re small in scale but still comfortable enough to lounge on – the sofette is this century’s settee!

For our home, I bought a blue sofette for the study, fulfilling my longtime dream of having a piece upholstered in a deep shade of teal.
Here’s a roundup of a few other favorites (the one I have is Bayonet in Caribbean Blue)
Which one is your favorite?
