Typically consisting of two sofas pushed together, these were tufted, carved and laminated, and less commonly featured corner pieces. In the era of Mid-Century Modern, the sectional sofa was the perfect showcase for the aesthetics of Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, and the sleek, industrial profile of contemporary-style furniture. It also ingeniously answered the question of standardization vs. customization in the face of high volume of consumer demand, thanks to department stores and catalogs. By breaking a sofa down into sectional pieces (modular design), it was all at once easier to manufacture and ship, as well as mass-produce standard, individual pieces that could then be customized once they were home in the living room.
Breaking Down the Designs. There are a dizzying number of options when it comes to sectional sofas, which means you can get exactly what you want. Read below about the various styles to get a head start.
Versatility. When you use sectionals as the basis of your living room furniture you have the versatility to make the best use of the shape of your room. Most people purchase their sofa and chairs and then try to arrange the rest of the room around these. With sectional sofas you can arrange your seating furniture to suit your room. You can make best use of the natural features of your home and use those awkward corners as focal points rather than dust traps.
