Sectionals are a great way to make the most the space in
your room so you can relax or entertain comfortably. We carry a wide range of
styles, from contemporary sectional sofas that match the style of your townhouse, to
traditional sectionals for those who love the look of rounded arms and tufted
backs. A sectional couch can last for many years when cared for properly, so it's
worth considering investing in additional features to max out on comfort. Use the
filters above on the left to filter for features like reclining sectionals.
Reclining sectionals often have a single recliner incorporated into the couch, or
multiple recliners that act as end pieces. Sleeper sectional sofas are another
popular option and are also great for hosting guests.
One of the greatest parts about sectionals is that they
can be set up in different shapes to accomodate the set up of your room. So make
sure you measure your space so you have a good idea of where the chaise lounge on
the sectional will go, or whether you need to change up your living room coffee
table in order to make enough room for all the seating. Here is a list of sectional
parts to keep in mind:
When it comes to sectional sofa orientation, there are a
couple of points to keep in mind. When planning on buying a sectional, you'll often
hear the two orientations called "Left Facing" and "Right Facing". This means that
when you are facing the sectional, left or right facing refers to the longest piece
pointing at you. So if there is a chaise lounge on the left side of the sectional,
then it is a left-facing sectional. This is an important consideration to make while
shopping online for a sectional, so that you don't end up with section of the sofa
facing a wall in an unintended way. Here is a list of the different sectional
L Shaped Sofa and Chaise Sectionals: This is one
of the most popular configurations for a sectional. It provides all the benefits of
a regular comfortable couch, but also includes a chaise lounge so that you can lay
out and relax. A perfect furniture choice for a TV room where relaxing and being
comfortable is the main goal.
Standard L-Shape Sectionals: You'll see this L
shaped sectional type in many living rooms, since it is a great way to maximize on
seating without taking up too much space. It's a great choice because although it's
a perfect fit for a corner in a room, it can also work as a great focal point and
add structure to larger living rooms or industrial lofts.
U Shaped Sectionals: The U-shaped sectional is a
great configuration for the center of a contemporary living room. It's the perfect
choice for homes that host a lot of guests, since everyone gets to face eachother,
making conversation a breeze. The U shape can also be achieved with one sofa and two
chaise lounges, if you want to maximize on comfort.

iCoastal/Tropical: Coastal and tropical sectionals are influenced by styles from overseas, with distinct decorative details such as palm trees, seashells, and pineapples. These pieces are most often constructed of bamboo, rattan, sea grass, wicker, and other woven materials. Mission/Shaker: Mission furniture is characterized by its simplicity and use of vertical slats and horizontal-vertical lines. Shaker furniture is also very simple, similar to mission without the slats. These styles are almost always constructed of dark woods. Traditional: Traditional sectionals have rolled or slightly curved arms. These pieces will have traditional details such as nailheads or wood inlay along the base and up the arms, or may have tufted cushions. In general, the feet are wooden blocks and the back of the couch is straight or slightly humped.Modern/Contemporary: Sectionals that have an updated or futuristic look are considered modern or contemporary. Modern and contemporary couches will have straight or track arms with straight lines across the top of the couch. These pieces are very simple, without any no extra padding, sometimes coming in nontraditional shapes and sizes. Casual: Casually style sectionals look overstuffed or fluffy in nature. These will often have pillow top arms, which are fluffy cushions sewn on the top or inside side of the arm and additional pillow top seat cushions that make these couches irresistibly comfortable.Transitional: Transitional sectionals are simpler than traditional, but not 100% modern. Featuring soft, but clean lines, without the ornate details of traditional style. Transitional sofas can have rounder features than modern or contemporary sectionals, and will fit in with most decor. Cottage: Cottage style sectionals are smaller scale upholstery pieces that are slipcovered or pictured in plaid or floral fabrics. Rustic/Lodge: Calling to mind log cabins and deep forests, these sectionals have a rugged look, often featuring natural woods accents and darker fabrics. The frame may even look like an actual log!
