A sectional sofa is a versatile piece of furniture that doesn’t take up much space, provides many seating options and looks stylish and sophisticated. Here, we take a look at some gorgeous sectional sofas

Sofas for your home

The living room is the hub of the house and the sofa is the star of the living room. Much of a home’s life revolves around the sofa; it is used for entertaining, to lounge in, to relax after work, watch TV and in some cases, even to take a nap! A sofa set has to be functional, versatile and good looking. It needs to withstand the wear and tear of daily living and be striking enough to enhance the look of your living room. It is one of the most important pieces of furniture that you would buy for your home and careful thought must be put into the selection,


When selecting your sofa, some of the factors to be considered include:

  • Appearance

    Whether the sofa is the focal point of the room or is used to complement other pieces of furniture, it should be pleasing to the eye.

  • Lifestyle

    Your selection of sofa should be based on your lifestyle, for instance, if you have young kids or pets, you may want a sofa that will be able to withstand daily wear and tear, or if you entertain a lot you may want a sectional.

  • Size

    Your sofa should fit comfortably and not overwhelm the living room.

  • Shape

    Your living room should be able to accommodate the shape of the sofa as it should not sit awkwardly in the room.


Sometimes, people put too many seating options in their living room to help accommodate family and friends. This can make the room feel stuffed and prevents ease of movement. An innovative way to solve this problem is to get sectional living room sets. This provides ample seating space, fits well into any room and when chosen wisely, looks gorgeous.

Sectional Sofa Designs for your Home

Sectional living room sets are super stylish and have become a very popular seating choice for living rooms. They help maximize seating space with their long continuous cushion and the corner seat helps utilize every inch of space. They are a cross between casual and formal as they provide ample space to relax in and look classy when entertaining.


When you choose a sectional sofa with a strong design style, it increases the visual interest of the living room as it draws the eye. Here are some lovely sectional sofa options for your living room.

Classic White L-shaped Sectional Sofa with Chaise for a Compact Living Room

There’s perhaps nothing more classic than a sectional sofa with a chaise. With rectangular-cut cushions, soft white fabric upholstery, and small but beautifully crafted feet, it is the kind of sectional couch that would raise the look of any living room. It will go beautifully with a minimal colour palette and can be complemented with a soft grey shag carpet, a low wooden centre table and tall, wooden chairs to provide a compact arrangement and a timeless mid-century modern aesthetic.

Contemporary leather sofa L shape for a modern living room

Leather can look very formal but a tan leather sectional can ooze comfort with a clever mixing of textures. Instead of one complete tufted piece, the soft, plush pillows can be separate, offering multiple positioning options. The sleek biscuit tufting and clean boxy lines will make a stunning silhouette and paired with a faux fur throw, lush rug and artsy standing lamps, it can give a modern living room a contemporary, yet casual look.

Ultra-minimalist, Modern Sectional Sofa for a Long Living Room

Chic, clean, and ultra-minimalist, a modern sectional sofa with a sleek block-like visage can look like a piece of modern art right in the middle of the room. Upholstered with a soft, dark grey striped fabric, and paired with a light grey and white striped wallpaper and pale blue wall to wall carpeting, it can make a long living room look modern and stylish.

A Statement Leather Sectional Sofa for a Formal Living Room

Sometimes the sectional can become the star of the room, especially if it is a luxurious cognac, padded leather sectional sofa with a seat with a left arm, a seat with a right arm, and an armless seat in between. It offers plenty of seating options, and a freestanding ottoman in the same leather can be used to create a chaise or can serve as a cocktail table in a large, and very formal living room. Add a walnut centre table, dark walls and moulded ceilings to create an austere ambiance.

Wooden Sectional Sofa for a Luxurious Living Room

An exquisitely crafted wooden sectional in dark green velvet upholstery will be the luxurious gem of any living room. With a sculpted wood frame attractively exposed along the bottom, and perched atop stately solid wood legs for a lightweight look, the rest of the room can be designed around this sectional. With two beautiful ottomans upholstered in leafy velvet, antique velvet chairs, a rosewood bureau and a Persian rug on the hardwood floors, you will have a drawing room that is the height of lavish opulence.


Sweet and Small Sectional Sofa for a Small Living Room

If your living room is small, it doesn't mean that it cannot have a sectional. A small sectional sofa that is just over 80 inches across will be perfect for a small living room. In a neutral beige and with decorative stitching in a distinctive geometric design, it can be accented by geometric designs on the carpet and artwork. Simple brick walls will offer a perfect background for this compact and efficient arrangement.


Comfortable Sectional Sofa Bed for Den

Sectionals are the best options for dens where comfort takes top priority. A comfortable sectional with a chaise that has sumptuously thick cushions that you can sink into and low deep seating is a perfect choice. With a sleeper platform that slides out neatly from beneath the sofa to create a spacious bed for guests, it can also be used to simply create a pit-style seating area for weekend movie nights.


U-shaped Sectional Sofa Set for a Cosy Retreat

U-shaped sectional sofas are perfect for casual, cosy social gatherings and can transform a small living room to a truly welcoming space to relax in and the unique shape promotes conversation among guests. A pale blue U-shaped sectional with spring cushions softened by high-density foam will provide a soft and comfortable seating experience and a chaise that lifts up to reveal a spacious storage compartment is just an added advantage.


Bold and Colourful Sectional Sofa for a Boho Living Room

Who says that sectionals must be in dull and neutral colours? A funky sectional in deep yellow paired with two ottomans in a bright floral design and a bean bag in fuchsia will make colourful splashes all over a contemporary living room filled with greenery, giving it a sunny and vibrant ambiance.
