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."

So I set out with two main goals for this living room makeover: add more (and more efficient) seating AND create a light, bright feel.

This particular cabriole version includes jewels in the tufts for added glamour. It is a sofa style that can be as simple or opulent as you desire.

So we completely redid the fireplace and created a bookcase nook for the tv (you can read all about that project here), which realigned the room much more logically.

Let the curves of the sofa soften the harsh and angular lines of the surrounding decor and let it become a statement piece. You can reiterate its curves in a variety of forms in order to create a harmonious interior design. For instance, pair the sofa with a round top coffee table or with a circular area rug.
