Sectional Couches and Modular Sectional Sofas: Helpful Shopping Tips

How are Sectionals Sofas and Modular Sectionals Made?

Sectional sofas and modular sectionals are designed for entertaining, relaxation and movie marathons, so they are typically made with a sturdy frame such as solid wood or metal, and then upholstered with plush materials, including leather, woven fabric, or microfiber. The cushions are typically filled with foam, down feathers, or a combination of both. Modular sectionals are made with individual pieces that can be arranged in various configurations depending on the amount of space you have, while traditional sectionals come in a fixed shape, usually with a chaise on the left or right side or an overall L shape.

Materials

The materials used in sectional couches and modular sectionals can vary widely depending on the manufacturer and the price point. Higher-end sectionals often feature top-grain leather, while lower-end models may use bonded leather or easy-to-clean faux leather. Fabric options range widely, too, with everything from durable synthetic materials like polyester blends to natural fibers like cotton and linen. When selecting a sectional, it's important to consider your lifestyle and how the material will hold up over time. Homes with children or pets will want a more stain-resistant upholstery option that can hold up to rigorous use and big-time cuddles.

How do you measure for a sectional sofa?

When measuring for a sectional sofa, start by getting the dimensions of your room - be sure to include any doorways the sofa will need to pass through. Next, using tape or string, mark the footprint of your ideal sofa, exactly where you'd like to place it. Make sure you can comfortably walk between the sofa-to-be and other pieces of furniture. Lastly, measure your outline, noting the overall width, length and depth, as well as the dimensions of any chaise or ottomans. Now the fun part: shop for a sectional or modular sofa that most closely fits those measurements. World Market has multiple modular sofas to choose from, including pieces we've prearranged to take the guesswork out of your design.

Sectional Sofa and Modular Sectional Dimensions

Sectionals and modular sectionals come in a variety of sizes with measurements to fit different spaces and lifestyles. Standard sectionals typically measure between 9 and 14 feet in length, while modular sectionals can be configured to fit almost any space. It's important to measure your room, and likely your existing furniture, before purchasing a sectional to ensure that it will fit comfortably and not overpower the space. Measure the coffee table, floor lamps, and any end tables you will continue to use with your new sectional couch so you can be sure it all works together.

What is the difference between a sectional and modular sofa?

The difference between a sectional sofa and a modular sofa is subtle, but it helps to know the terms when shopping for new furniture. Both sectionals and modular sofas are made up of different pieces that connect together. Modular seating collections usually have individual pieces, typically the size of chairs – for example, you could combine two armless chairs with two end chairs to create a four-person sofa, or you can add a corner chair in the middle to create a five-person L-shaped sofa. Sectional sofas, on the other hand, are frequently a couch unit attached to a chaise unit, or two couch units that attach at a corner, or possibly even multiple couch units with a chaise. Both sectional and modular collections allow you to personalize your seating to suit your space, but modular furniture allows you the most flexibility.

How do you arrange throw pillows on a sectional sofa?

Ideas and strategies for arranging cushions and throw pillows on sectional sofas abound, and you can see what our experts have to say for inspirational ideas. A classic style is piling a trio of pillows in different shapes and sizes in each corner of your sectional. Or, if you have a small-space modular sofa, arrange a host of pillows so they're slightly overlapping along the whole length of your couch for an ultra-plush effect. Try choosing a neutral hue that complements your sofa for a few of the pillows and then a pop of color or a print that makes you smile for the rest. It's easy to add fun texture to your pillows with our selection of faux fur, velvet, and embroidered toss cushions. Most importantly, go with your gut to develop a look that's totally comfy and totally you.

How do you float a sectional sofa?

"Floating a sofa" is designer-speak for arranging your sofa away from your walls in larger rooms. Creating a sense of a room within a room, floating your sectional sofa imbues your space with a welcoming, lounge-like vibe. It also facilitates the flow of traffic around the seating area and creates an ambience of intimacy within it. To float your sectional sofa, consider arranging your sectional so that one portion is facing a window. Or, for a bold seating arrangement, place your wrap-around sectional with one sofa facing a doorway (just be sure to allow three feet between the doorway and the sofa, so people can move freely). For a simpler arrangement, place your sectional with its back against a wall and its chaise reaching out into the living space. Just remember to balance your elements – arrange chairs and other large pieces opposite the floating chaise or sofa to create a sense of symmetry. Most importantly, partner your floating sectional or modular sofa with the right rug to create a dramatic and unifying look - we have plenty of tips on choosing the right rug.

Sectional Sofa and Modular Sectionals FAQs

  • What is a modular sectional?
    • A modular sectional is a type of couch made up of individual pieces that can be rearranged in various configurations to fit different spaces. The pieces often include armless chairs, corner-end chairs (or right- and left-end chairs) and ottomans.
  • How do modular sofas stay together?
    • Modular sofas can use connectors - called sectional connectors - or brackets to keep the individual pieces securely attached to each other. These aren't always needed, however, if the pieces have non-slip feet.
  • What are the benefits of modular sofas?
    • Modular sofas are an incredibly versatile choice for small spaces, but can easily be expanded to fit a large room or a large family. When entertaining the pieces can be broken out into different arrangements. They can also be easier to move than traditional sectionals and are easy to adapt to a new space.
  • What are the disadvantages of modular sofas?
    • Modular sofas can be more expensive than traditional sectionals because you have to purchase the pieces individually, and may require additional pieces or connectors to achieve the desired configuration if you have an irregular room shape.
  • How much does a good sectional couch cost?
    • Of course the cost of a sectional couch can vary widely depending on the size, materials, and manufacturer. But you can expect to pay between $1000 and $5000 for a quality sectional.
  • Are all sectionals modular?
    • No, not all sectionals are modular. Traditional sectionals come in a fixed shape and cannot be rearranged. That means you need to make sure you know on which side of the sofa you want your chaise to live. "Left-facing" means the chaise is on the left when you're standing in front of the couch. "Right-facing" means it's on the right.
  • How long do sectionals last?
    • The lifespan of a sectional can vary depending on the household it belongs to, the materials used and how well it's maintained. Real leather wears well over time, while upholstery that is well-loved by kids and pets will require more attention than a sofa that isn't being used for epic tickle fights. On average, a well-made sectional should last between 7 and 15 years.
  • Can modular sectionals be rearranged?
    • That is their divine purpose! Modular sectionals are designed to be rearranged in various configurations to fit different spaces and seating needs.
