A sectional sofa is a great choice for a room where you entertain several people at once. It provides equally comfortable seating for the whole family or all your guests. With one sofa, you can furnish a room in a streamlined way, eliminating the clutter that separate pieces of furniture would cause.

In this guide to the best sectional sofas, we’ll review the top styles that suit almost any kind of interior design and floor plan. But first, let’s quickly review some things to consider when shopping for a sectional sofa.

How to choose the best sectional sofa

Once you’ve measured the space where you want to place a sectional sofa, there are just a few more things to consider. First, if you are interested in sofas that have an L-shape, or one side longer than the other, you’ll need to know the difference between “right arm facing” and “left arm facing.”

These terms are used to describe what you see when you’re facing the sofa. “Right arm facing” means that the arm, or shorter side, is at your right hand. Knowing this one attribute will help you plan for the placement of the sofa in your space. You won’t accidentally cut off access to part of the sofa, block off a doorway, or crowd out other furniture.

Second, the placement of your sectional sofa affects, and is affected by, traffic patterns. If the sofa has a chaise, that may work better on the side of the room nearer the wall or the television. Would you prefer arms on the sofa, and if so, would you want them at both ends, or just one?

Third, is the sofa for a place that get lots of use, like a family room? If so, you may prefer more durable fabrics or leather. You may also decide on a darker color that won’t show wear as quickly as a light color.

Now, with those considerations in mind, here are the best sectional sofas.

Recommendation

Choosing the perfect sectional sofa for your home is a personal decision. It’s most likely based on the space you have available, the interior design of your home, and your budget. How you plan to use the sofa also has an impact—whether it’s primarily in a busy family room or for occasional guests in a living room.

 

If you want to add sleeping space to a room, consider getting the OPUSRFSECT Opus Convertible from Diamond Sofa since it’s easy to turn it into a sleeper bed. You could also improvise with the Telus from Beverly Hills Furniture or the sofas from Poundex (the Bobkona and the Montereal).

 

if you love top-grain leather, consider the Carlyle from Elements Fine Home Furnishing and the Italian Leather Sectional from J&M Furniture.

 

Small homes can benefit from a sectional sofa too, as is evident when you consider the Telus or the Montereal.

 

Several sectionals we reviewed would fit into most interior design schemes, but a couple stand out for their uniqueness. The coastal style Cabana Banana II and the Jackson with its cozy Southwestern pattern add regional flavor to whatever space they occupy.

 

We hope we helped you discover the sectional sofa that best fits your plans and dreams. Visit us again soon to see new reviews and guides to the top products for your home.
