15 of Our Favorite Sectional Sofas

by Grace Bonney


I love sectional sofas. Mainly because I spend a huge chunk of my life on the sofa, working and watching movies and TV when I take a break. I’ve always preferred a super comfy sofa with plenty of room to stretch out, so sectionals have always seemed the like best of both worlds- they can still have clean lines and great form, but they also provide plenty of room for multiple people to get cozy. But what I love most about sectionals is the bold design statement they makes. Smaller spaces often seem like they require smaller pieces of furniture, but for me, one larger sofa will always be a great decision (if it can practically fit in the room, of course). Sectionals give you a chance to go bold with a huge swath of color or pattern (like the sofa above) or create a soft neutral space to balance busier walls or rugs. Today I selected 15 of my favorite sectional sofas, from class L-shaped designs to curvy velvet models and lime green tufted pieces. I hope they’ll provide some inspiration if you’re looking to update your living room style. xo, grace
