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.
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.
