What is a modular sofa?
Modular sectionals are designed to fit into your space and lifestyle: They’re composed of two or more pieces that can be moved around into different shapes, depending on what you prefer. You can also space them out in multiple groups, if smaller separated seating areas work better in your living room.
Modular sofas are typically meant to be laid out in an “L” shape and conveniently fit into a corner of a room. However, since most modular sofas come in 4 or more sections, they can be rearranged to best fit your living space.
What is the difference between a modular sofa and a sectional?
Sectional sofas are usually larger pieces of furniture meant to fill a bigger room, and they typically come “as-is-” meaning there aren’t usually as many options for rearranging or moving pieces around, as a modular sofa would. However, they still typically come in two pieces, which is why many people confuse modular sofas and sectionals.
Modular sofas may come in more pieces, to increase your options for rearranging and optimizing the space. It’s common for modular sofas to contain multiple sections, while sectionals are usually separated into just two larger pieces.
Modular sofas are great for smaller spaces, because you can break up the pieces to suit the space. Many modular sofas or modular sectionals come with ottomans, chaise lounges, and even separate chairs to help customize your living space to perfection.
Some pieces are considered “modular sectionals,” because they have multiple pieces but are still big enough to suit a large living space. A great choice if you want to change up the look of your living space or accommodate many people in one seating area. Sectionals are great for large families or groups, and modular sofas are perfect for small living spaces or apartments.
