Craving a cosy night in? A modular sofa is the perfect way to cuddle up. Sectionals were invented when an unknown furniture designer decided to attach a pouf to a sofa and make it one piece. They’ve increased in popularity in the past decade or so, as more and more free time is being spent in the living room viewing shows and movies at home with family and friends.
Choosing a Sectional Sofa
Choosing the right sectional is actually pretty simple. There are three sectional shapes: The U-shape, the L-shape and the Semi-circular shape. The first step that we always suggest to our Client is to find out the best configuration drawing a floor plan. This step will allow us to experiment with different solutions, evaluating different models and find out the best element combination related to space and comfort needs.
Things to Consider
Once the model and the configuration are decided, it will be necessary to confirm elements dimensions. Despite a wide catalogue product range that we offer to our Clients, modular sofas always require a strong personalization and single element has to be adapted to both space requirement and personal needs and tastes.
The most common placement for a regular sofa is against the wall, but this doesn’t have to be the case for a sectional. In the first contemporary living room below, the large spaces allow to place Gordon modular sofa in the middle of the room, floating the chaise longue out. This is a great way to visually mix all piece of furniture up. Fabric or leather sofa colour have to work well with the overall decor of the living room. Due its imperious dimension, modular sofa is usually upholstered with light and neutral tones. In the second living room with Ambassador modular sofa, the decorative pillows in eye-catching textures and powerful colours are a good way to match the concept colour palette and give to the entire room a luxury look. When it comes to modular sofas, customization is an essential requirement. Amazon sofa, in its custom-made modular version, looks perfect in the third well-balanced composition shown. The console placed against its back helps to visually anchor the sofa to its spot and give an extra decorative flourish to the room.
We always suggest our Client to consider the modular sofa as the centrepiece of the projecting space, focusing on elegance and balanced final result. The choice of the model and the elements that compose has to define a harmonious interior design, knitting together all of the surrounding elements and bringing a sense of completeness to the space.
