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. Whether your tastes run tailored or more casual, multi-functional sectionals help you maximize seating for large gatherings as well as everyday lounging. Choosing the fabric for your sofa can be the most fun—and sometimes the most daunting—part of sofa shopping. You’ll want to consider not just the color, but also the texture and finish of the fabric.
