What Is a Mid Century Sectional Sofa?

A sectional is an L-shaped couch or sofa. It is essentially a combination of a sofa (or loveseat) and a chaise lounge. Sectional sofas can often be disassembled and reassembled in different configurations, such as moving the chaise from the left to the right side. While there are different styles of sectionals, most of ours are the type known as chaise sectionals - AKA traditional and bumper sectional sofas.

Why Buy a Sectional Sofa?

When you picture a sectional, you might think of a big, baggy behemoth of a sofa that takes up the whole living room while draining it of every ounce of style. But we promise - none of these mid Century modern furniture designs will do you that disservice!

Sectional sofas often make the most use of your living space in terms of "seating added," which means you'll fit more friends for the big game or movie night. Plus, they pair perfectly with some of our contemporary and modern accent chairs! And they all have free shipping!

Having a Hard Time Deciding? How to Pick the Right Sectional Sofa

Need a little help choosing? Some people have a picture in their head of exactly what they want, but most of us struggle to figure out exactly what furniture pieces are right for our homes. All of the above have free shipping and are from some of the best brands, so you don't need to worry about that!

Here is a quick checklist of things to do to help you shop and pick the right sectional sofa.

  • Measure the Space - First, you need to make sure you find a sofa that fits your space. Measure the area where you're going to put the sofa. Each sofa has the width, length, and height dimensions listed (just click the links to find the product listings). We recommend using painter's tape and taping out the dimensions on your floor, so you can make sure the furniture fits your room without looking too big or small.
  • Determine the Configuration - Sectionals are a little trickier than other sofas because you have to figure out if you need a left or right orientation. So, figure out which way your sofa will face, and make sure to get the right orientation or choose a reversible sectional.
  • Choose a Color - We usually recommend neutrals (like white, black, gray, tan) unless you absolutely fall in love with a brighter color and are sure you'll love it for a long time. If you love color and you decide to go for a neutral sofa, you can always add color to the room using throw pillows and blankets, rugs, or paint. If you love light colors, go ahead and pull the trigger. Today's modern upholstery is easy to clean! But if you love a moody look, there are plenty of dark greys, navy blues, and blacks that will look amazing in your space.

Didn't find a sectional on this list that suits your home and your style? Rest assured, we have plenty more modern living room furniture to choose from, most with free shipping! This is just a small sample of our selection of stunning modern sectionals and sofas! We know you'll love any of our mid Century modern designs, so go forth and shop!
