Love it or loathe it, the sectional sofa is here to stay. What do I mean by ‘sectional’? It’s a sofa that comes in several pieces that you can configure in various different ways to suit your seating needs.

I love an individual sofa — in particular an elegant tuxedo couch — but I also love getting comfy on a big corner couch. A sectional immediately adds a relaxed, understated vibe to a room because it’s all about sharing, and there always seems to be room for one more person to squeeze on. Since the sections can be moved around, you can easily rearrange them into different permutations for different occasions.
