Experience the Versatility of a Sectional Sofa



Living room sectionals combine the seating of several furniture pieces to make the most of your space and cut back on clutter. Sectionals can fit in any corner or serve as the floating centerpiece of a living room. My Bob’s sectional sofas have tons of convenient features, too! While sleeper sectionals easily transform your living room into a guest room, sectional sofas with recliners allow you to lean back and relax after a long day. I believe that any time is a good time to kick your feet up!





Sectional Sofa FAQs



Yes, a sectional sofa has detachable pieces - it is built to come apart, but only if done intentionally! In other words, if the sections are attached properly, they shouldn't come apart during normal sofa activities (i.e. sitting, napping, binging rom-coms, etc.).


Some sectional sofa pieces are connected using latches and are easy to detach from one another. Others are screwed together and require tools to separate. So you may or may not need your tool belt handy!

 

 

 

I strongly recommend doing your research on what kind of sectional you want before buying!


Sectional sofas come in various shapes (you might see these referred to as 'configurations') and sizes. Before you make a decision, consider the size of your living space, as well as the seating preferences of those who will spend the most time on it.


Small sectional sofas typically come in two pieces and combine two loveseats, or a loveseat and a chaise


Mid-sized sectionals have three pieces and have seating for three to five people.


Oversized sectionals include four or more pieces and offer tons of seating- you'll likely be able to fit the whole family!


In terms of shape, sectionals are typically L-shaped or U-shaped. An L-shape sectional sofa is a more versatile option, as it can be placed in a corner, along a wall, or float in the middle of a room. Depending on the size of your space, you can pair an L-shaped sectional with other furniture pieces, such as accent chairs or a loveseat.


U-shaped sectionals are designed for larger spaces and provide plenty of extra seating. These often frame a coffee table nicely, plus they're ideal for face-to-face conversations!


Need somewhere for your guests to sleep? Other sectional sofas have sleepers that can easily turn a comfortable sitting area into a guest bed.


Don't forget, you'll also have your choice of several fabrics. Leather sectionals are a popular choice and they often have one or more reclining seats. Then you have your standard polyester or polypropylene fabrics, of course!

 

 

 

When deciding between a sofa and a sectional, you’ll first want to consider the size of your room, as well as how it will be used.


The main advantage of a sectional is it typically offers more sitting room than a sofa. Sectionals can also be used to maximize space, especially in corners of rooms. Or they can be used to break up an open floor plan. Plus, a sectional with an ottoman or a sectional with a chaise allow you to kick back and put your feet up!


Remember, you can always pair a sofa with an accent chair or loveseat, and you’ll gain the same number of seats as a sectional.

 

 

 

Seriously, who wants to do math when furniture shopping? Don’t let that scare you away! Even though sectionals have more angles than a typical sofa, understanding and measuring its dimensions is easier than you may think.


A sectional is measured by height, width and depth.


The height represents the measurement, in inches, from the bottom of the sectional to the top of the sofa back.


Width is measured, from left to right, along the sofa back.


The depth is measured from the front-facing edge to the very back of the sofa.
