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."
Choose a cozy area rug. Don’t underestimate the power of a comfy area rug. Sometimes a little fluff underfoot is the difference between a brilliant design that’s welcoming and lived-in and an almost-brilliant design that’s cold and lifeless. Rugs in soft, neutral tones, like cream and white, work well with gray sectionals.
The sectional sofa has evolved as a piece of furniture into something wholly transformational for living rooms. These innovative seating arrangements offer the kind of spontaneous rearrangement that more permanent furniture sets could only dream of.
