When it comes to furniture, few would argue against the comfort and charm a sectional sofa can bring to any home. This popular style has been gaining momentum in recent years.
The sectional has found its place within the most stylish homes across USA, Canada and beyond. The ability to combine individual pieces to customize the fit makes the sectional a sound investment for any size room.
For Small Spaces
Despite popular belief, it’s easy to find a new sectional sofa that is suitable for just about any space – the L-shaped sectional (often referred to as a love seat with a matching chaise lounge), for example, is frequently recommended by designers to those who are looking to furnish a smaller, if not cramped, room.
This configuration works well in tight spaces, as it fits conveniently in corners, making use of negative space that is generally hard to fill and, consequently, is left bare. Moreover, this particular type of sofa provides ample sitting space for cozy evenings relaxing with family or even a lively night entertaining friends.
The L-shaped sectional often provides enough seating to eliminate the need for additional chairs; having fewer chairs clears more floor space and allows the small room feel much more open.
For Large Spaces
Of course, additional pieces can be added when there is a large room to be filled. By combining sofa and love seat sections with corner pieces or wedges, the creatively arranged sectional makes the most substantial space feel warm and inviting.
While creating a fabulous conversation area, the U-Shaped sofa works well in front of a fireplace or television. Those furnishing a new home theater may want to consider a model with built in reclining chairs for added comfort. Sectional pieces can be rearranged as needs or preferences change, making this a versatile choice as well as practical.
For the style conscious who are decorating a room on a tight budget, the sectional set is an easy favorite. The frugal shopper enjoys just as much available seating as with a traditional sofa set but saves money because fewer pieces of furniture are needed to complete the grouping.
The budget-minded also have the option of selecting dual purpose furnishings. Many sectionals are designed with hidden storage areas or provide extra sleeping space to accommodate guests.
With a reputation for excellent style and unparalleled versatility, the sectional can complement nearly any décor; modern, contemporary, or traditional. Available in fabrics ranging from the most durable microfiber to the finest leather; in these ways, sectional sofas are the cornerstone of stylish homes.
Indeed, with so many sofa options out there, a new sectional – of any variety – can easily revitalize the style and space of your living quarters, giving it a completely new feel.
