Admiral's House Transitional Entry, Boston

This stately Georgian home in West Newton Hill, Massachusetts was originally built in 1917 for John W. Weeks, a Boston financier who went on to become a U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of War. The home’s original architectural details include an elaborate 15-inch deep dentil soffit at the eaves, decorative leaded glass windows, custom marble windowsills, and a beautiful Monson slate roof. Although the owners loved the character of the original home, its formal layout did not suit the family’s lifestyle. The owners charged Meyer & Meyer with complete renovation of the home’s interior, including the design of two sympathetic additions. The first includes an office on the first floor with master bath above. The second and larger addition houses a family room, playroom, mudroom, and a three-car garage off of a new side entry.

Front exterior by Sam Gray. All others by Richard Mandelkorn.

I can't seem to find it on their website. Do you have a link or a product code? It's a great alternative!

Diana - I just saw the alternative you posted now. I still haven't purchased a settee, and love the one you found. It's perfect.

This is a custom settee. You might want to show this picture to a furniture maker and they should be able to replicate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to 14 Settees and Lounges That Work Magic in Small Spaces
A settee in a formal entryway is an immediate welcome for guests.
Lisa Frederick added this to Entryway Settees Open the Door to Hospitality
To my mind, nothing puts forth an air of welcome like a cozy place to sit. This high-back, tufted settee helps to make the formal entry feel less imposing and more relatable, especially with the casual throw and toss pillows.
Becky Harris added this to 17 Ways to Make Better Use of Entryway Corners
Add more formal seating. In this grander front entryway, the look of the furniture has been kicked up a few notches. A high-backed tufted settee is a great spot for putting on or removing shoes; a tripod lamp lights up the corner and draws attention to the intricate moldings and the artwork.
Laura Gaskill added this to Chaise, Divan, Daybed, Settee: What's the Difference?
What Is a Settee?A settee is a small sofa with two arms and a back. It usually seats two and is more upright and slender than a typical sofa. Unlike most sofas, a settee can easily look at home in an entryway, in a bedroom or even pulled up to the dining table, thanks to its elegant proportions and upright posture.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Reasons to Love Wingback Chairs
9. Wingback Settees and Sofas Look Smart TooWingback shapes look refined on a slender sofa, a settee or even an upholstered headboard. When you want elegance and coziness in one neat package, go for a wingback.
