(pronounced TET-eh-tet)

This schizophrenic word can be used many ways (see its entry under the Say What? glossary), but in a décor sense, it is this: a sofa (or other piece of furniture) intended to seat two persons, usually facing one another. Traditionally, they were fashioned in an “S” shape, but we found some various on this theme. Sometimes also called a confidante.
