Designer Alicia Murphy used a sectional in the living room of a teensy trailer she converted into a plush family getaway in Montauk, New York, for this very reason: "If you were to use a sofa and a chair, you would have about 36” of dead space in the corner—but by using a sectional you give that corner life. You most likely will add seating for two or three more people if you use a corner sectional rather than a sofa and chair."
A couple of years ago, I chose a couch from Article for a client (aka my little brother 😉 ), and I was so very impressed. I was a little hesitant about ordering furniture that I couldn’t touch beforehand (they sell exclusively online), but their low delivery price and easy return policy made it a no brainer… and the couch ended up being perfect: the quality, the style, and the price were incredible. So I began looking at Article when I was thinking about a new couch for my living room, and was so pleased to find this sectional and to partner with them on this project. The Cube is a very generous (both deep and wide) modular sofa, sold either as a three-piece set or piece by piece (ours is two ends, two middles, and one corner to make the giant L… and I do mean giant).
Accent with muted pinks or purples and metallics. Soft pinks and purples, like dusty rose and blush pink, pair beautifully with gray. The muted hues add a touch of femininity without overpowering the design. Metallics often complete this color palette, adding a chic touch of glamour to the overall look.
In accessories designer Fiona Kotur's Hong Kong house, the sitting room’s custom-made sectional sofa is dressed in a Designtex fabric, with pillows of a Lee Jofa solid and a Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks print; Kotur designed the cocktail table, which is clad in basketweave-pattern copper tile by Maya Romanoff, the 1950s palm-tree lamp is by Jansen, and the vintage Moroccan carpet is from Woven Accents.
