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."
Pair a charcoal-hued sectional with white. If you own a charcoal gray sectional, opt for a high-contrast look by surrounding it with bright whites. White walls or crisp, white shelving will achieve the look.
Yours truly is remembering a hallway-like common area that she and two roommates shared in New York City, in which an armchair was so crushed up next to a couch that they overlapped at the arms, the corner between them occupied by a side table that could fit a lamp and nothing else (and that was so crammed into the space you couldn't even see the legs of it, let alone clean it). But a sectional—the right size sectional—could have added one more seat to that corner, relaxing the cramped nature of the room we'd so poorly devised.
NOVOGRATZ SOFA FUTON: This futon certainly has a mid–century vibe to it. If you´re looking for a comfortable and easy—to—clean futon for a guest room also the Novogratz Sofa Futon is it. The linen upholstery "needs" nothing more than a wipedown for cleaning.
