Explore a Wide Array of Sectional Configurations
Most used sectionals showcase an L-shape. Easily achievable by merging two benches at a 90-degree angle, or setting a bench perpendicular to a chaise, the L is ideal for most spaces. It can easily hug two walls or define a more intimate conversation area within a larger space (like an open living room-dining room combo). Something to keep in mind: when shopping for a vintage L-shape sectional, terms like right arm-facing or left arm-facing will be used to define specifics like what side the sectional’s chaise is located on. In example, if an item is tagged “Right arm-facing,” it means that when you are standing in front of the sofa, facing it directly, the arm is on your right side.
If scoring the corner horseshoe-shaped booth at your favorite Italian joint fills you with joy, a U-shape sectional might be your best bet. Undeniably intimate, a U-shape sectional can consist of anything from an elegantly curved sofa, or a boxy, modular-like structure that features two 90-degree turns (or three rows of seating). Because both of these sofa types offer the option for two people to sit directly across from one another, they’re ideal for spaces where cultivating conversation is priority.
Let’s face it, a vintage sectional is an investment. It’s a piece you’ve likely considered long and hard, yet—for better or worse—that doesn’t mean you’ll never tire of it. Our solution? A modular sectional.
Consisting of soft blocks or cushions that can be shifted to create a series of formations, modular sofas are perfect for those who crave spontaneity. Indulge in a right-facing sectional one day and a left-facing the next. While modular furniture dates back as far as the early 20th Century, it’s American designer Harvey Probber who’s credited with introducing modular seating in the 1940s. Early prototypes of Probber’s featured flat, ottoman-like seats and rectangular block pillows that could be moved atop the ottomans to create backs and arms. When the 1970s ushered in an era of general bohemia mania, these floor-skimming models became the unquestionable poster child.
