Sectional sofas are a great option when it comes to adding extra seating to a living room or den, or for days when you just want to sprawl out and relax. The best sectional couches are composed of multiple independent pieces that can be arranged in a number of different positions. Sectionals are usually designed in a classic “L” shape and are great for essential space-saving and functionality.
What To Look For When Choosing A Sectional
Don’t go by the picture. A sectional that looks small in an image may actually be too big for your home. Always read the measurements.
How will you be using your sectional? Will it always be in one piece as an L or U-shaped couch, or do you need modular pieces that can be used on their own for parties and large gatherings?
Keep fabric in mind. Microfiber fabric is great for homes with pets and kids since it’s stain-resistant, while cotton has a high-end finish, but is difficult to clean. Leather sectionals will likely last a long time, but they typically come with a higher price tag.
How We Chose The Best Sectionals
These featured sectional sofas boast clean, modern lines that fit in easily with any style decor and are available in multiple, durable fabric colors and styles. These sectionals are a great way to provide a large amount of seating that is relaxing yet cozy without taking up a bunch of space. We opted for sectionals that can be arranged on either side of a room (the long chaise part is reversible). We also included sectionals that are highly rated by customers for their quality and comfort, since a nice-looking sectional isn’t worth your hard-earned money if it’s uncomfortable.
Take a seat and check out the best sectionals that will soon become your favorite place to watch, read, hang out and sleep.
1. Rivet Revolve Reversible Chaise Sectional
The Rivet Revolve Sectional is a reversible sectional with a built-in chaise that can be moved to either end to accommodate any room layout. Made with a sturdy hardwood frame, solid beech wood legs and a bold, modern design, this sofa sectional will easily blend with any decor style. This Amazon-branded sectional is made from strong and durable, stain-resistant fabric, has medium-firm cushions and easily wipes clean with a soft, dry cloth. Available in eight colors, the Rivet lineup also includes a matching love seat, sofa and living room chair, making it easy to furnish an entire room.
Pros: Sturdy hardwood frame, several color and matching furniture options available, stain-resistant fabric.
Cons: This couch is ideal for small spaces, however, if you prefer a larger couch, another option might be better.
2. HONBAY Reversible Sectional Sofa Couch
For a sectional sofa that will not only impress guests with its high-end nail-head trim finish, but also provide a convenient place to store blankets and cushions, we like the Honbay Reversible Sectional Sofa Couch. Available in dark grey and blueish gray (shown here), the Honbay is finished with a soft, breathable fabric that is durable and won’t pill. The solid wood frame holds up seat cushions that are filled with pocket coils and serpentine springs. The four-seater sofa is great for entertaining or stretching out for nap time. The mid-century sectional is reversible and the extended ottoman easily lifts up for discrete storage with a bonus storage bag included for magazines, remotes and other small items. Assembly is straightforward and doesn’t require the use of tools.
Pros: Nail-head trim finish, hidden storage, large seating capacity.
Cons: The couch sits low and may be uncomfortable for taller users.
3. Novogratz Brittany Sectional Futon Sofa
For a versatile pick, we love this option. Not only is it a good-looking couch (thanks to the ribbing along the backrest), but it also has the ability to convert into a bed, thanks to its futon-like construction. The Novogratz is available as a sectional in either navy (show below) or green, giving users solid options that will match easily with most decor choices. And, despite being the lightest option on our list, the couch boasts an impressive 600lb weight limit.
Pros: Back folds down to turn into a bed.
Cons: Smaller than other options on our list.
