InfoCoastal/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!
