I still remember hunter green patterned velour, puffy back, reclining sectionals that completely dwarfed even the largest of rooms… and I shudder. But sectionals have come so far since I was a girl in the early 90’s. And I am thrilled to show you how a HUGE sectional was actually the answer to our rather-on-the-small-side family room.
Despite its large size, its low profile made it perfect for our walls of windows. The previous couch (which was not particularly high-backed) kept bumping into the plantation shutters and forcing them closed. The view is straight out to our backyard, and it is one of the best parts of this room – and you know how I feel about all the natural light – so the height of the Cube is absolutely perfect. The low profile also helps accentuate the room’s high ceilings and makes it feel so much larger even though much more floor space is actually covered by the sectional.
So why does it feel like a risky move? "I think it's the same reason we often paint small spaces dark—which can feel counterintuitive but actually works so, so well in small rooms (den, powder room, etc.)," says designer Caroline Burke of Anna Burke Interiors. "A sectional can give you that maxed-out seating and help the room feel like a cozy nook, not a cramped back office."
Do you have a sofa in your living room? For sure and the answer is yes. A living room won't be complete without a sofa also the rest of the living room furniture. It is important to have one since it is where we amuse guests. Aside from that and it is also the area where we relax with the family.
