So now that we are actually going to move, it's time to start thinking about decor. 

(obviously that's the only redeeming part of moving)

One piece of furniture I have gravitated towards lately is the tête-à-tête sofa. It's a piece that allows people to sit and talk face-to-face (hence the name) and it would be a delightful addition to our apartment.

The benefit of a tête-à-tête is it gives a room a "cleaner" visual line than a regular sofa would because it is lower. And unlike a bench (which would accomplish the same clean-line goal) it has the perfect leaning nooks. 

Aka it's aesthetically please and comfortable. Double threat.

I love it in a seating area paired with a couch and two chairs, or stools. 

Jonathan Adler sells one (which is 20% off right now thanks to their gigantic furniture and rug sale) and so does Dwell Studio

Sadly, both are fairly pricey.

1st Dibs carries some gorgeous (really expensive) beauties if you're in the market.

I have yet to source a less-expensive option, but I would love to hear if you know of any. 

Or if you live in New York and are selling one (or giving one away…wink)…holla at me!
