8 Ways to Design with Sectional Sofas
I tend to find the standard sectional sofa a bit cumbersome. It takes up a good portion of a room, creating an awkward space to navigate in. Though it gets points for comfort and availability of seating, it’s usually not enough to tempt me to suggest putting one in a space. However, the well-designed sectional sofa wins the day with a combination of the right color, pattern, design, and feeling. Let’s take a look at how to design using the sectional sofa.
- Pattern please! In a minimally colored room, a fun patterned sectional creates instant personality and even separates the room out with the extension. This one, a basic sofa shape with an extended lounge seat, is a great solution to a long room.
- The rounded sofa. This brown leather sofa is a beautiful choice in a large room. The upholstery is rounded, thus creating instant comfort, and adds drama to an otherwise geometric room.
- The neutral. This neutral sectional plays well off the other minimal selections. With simple throw pillows it, complements the perfectly placed hanging mirror.
- Modular. This rectangular sectional is designed with a number of cushions that are stacked together to form one unit. This effect creates a unique look to the traditional image. Plus, it can be used in a variety of styles.
- Dark sectional. A dark sectional does wonders in a light space. It creates depth and rounds out the space. Placing an armchair adds to the circular movement of the room making it a great spot for conversation.
- Mellow yellow. Is there anything happier than yellow? This yellow curving sectional is mod, mod, mod. It goes back to a time in design when bringing people together for conversation was important.
- A sectional to fill space. With a long room like this, a sectional plays proportionally well. It fills the length, while also eliminating the clutter that comes from creating pockets of vignettes so that you can focus on the view.
- Outdoor sectionals. Outdoor furniture companies do a great job of creating modular pieces that can be arranged according to your entertaining needs like this combination.
