Size Up Your Space
- Know how much room you have to work with. We recommend a large anchor piece, like a sectional, takes up no more than two-thirds of the wall behind it.
- Tape out sectional measurements on the floor for a helpful visual. Choose large items first then select other furniture.
- Consider all your options: L-shape, U-shape, curved, sofa chaise, angled chaise or custom. You want to work with your space, not against it.
Right Arm vs. Left Arm
- A left or right arm refers to the sofa as you’re looking at it, not as you’re sitting on it.
- If you want your sofa to extend out at the right side, choose a sofa with a right-arm chaise. Choose a sofa with a left-arm chaise for it to extend out from the left.
Finding Your Size & Style
- The right-angle sectional helps define zones in a living room.
- Its shape makes it easy to place against a wall or float freely in a room.
- Ideal in large or open rooms, this cozy configuration defines a dedicated conversation area.
- Best fit for large spaces.
- Creates conversation areas thanks to a left and right arm that face each other.
- We recommend 72–78 inches between the sofas that create the U-shape. This leaves a comfortable amount of space for a coffee table or ottoman.
- Smart solution for small spaces: modular pieces easily fit through small hallways and doors and then come together to create a sectional.
- Create anything from a small to large sectional with modular, armless chair pieces.
- Flexible pieces allow you to easily change your sectional arrangement on the fly.
Curved & Angled Chaise Sectionals
- Adds a sophisticated, sculptural element to any space.
- Great solution for larger rooms where the sectional does not have to sit flush with the wall.
- Wedges, corners and chaises let you build a sectional that maximizes seating.
- Perfect for lounging, napping or family movie night.
Sofa Chaise Sectionals
- The traditional sofa chaise combination packs sectional-like comfort and style in a compact design.
- One of the easiest styles to live with: it can be positioned against a wall or float freely in a room.
- A sofa with a reversible chaise has maximum flexibility—the chaise is like an ottoman that can be on either side of the sofa.
Tuck a console table behind a sectional. A long, narrow table provides plenty of surface area without taking up much real estate.
