Leather Sectional Sofas

Sectional sofas are extremely versatile and a picture-perfect way to utilize your main living space. You can find styles that range from a southwestern look into a contemporary flare and more often you will find a traditional leather sectional sofa with tons of options. Sectionals are awesome because they have so many pieces that you can usually fit into most any space. You can use an L shaped corner to actually fit into a corner of your room, this helps utilize all of your wall space. This corner seat is not the most comfortable seat because your feet will not touch the ground but it is great space filler and as mentioned it will fit flush into the corner of your living space. A curved corner or a more round wedge also works into the corner of your room but you will have a gap between the wall and the wedge, it does not fit tight into the wall like the L shape corner. A curved wedge does however work as an additional seat. Depending on the size you can comfortably seat 1 – 2 people on a corner wedge. This is a great spot for folks that like to sit curled up, it is so very comfortable for doing just that.

Leather sectional sofas also make the perfect room divider. Free floating sectionals are just as popular as those used against a wall. Most all leather sectional sofas these days are finished on the back side in a fashion that is good enough to use these pieces free floating, neat and with seams every couple feet. Sectional sofas are so versatile and functional. It brings people together while providing more seating than just a sofa and loveseat can.

You have a loveseat with one arm which is two seats on one side of a corner and sofa which contains 3 seats on the other side. The shorter side the loveseat will be on the left when you stand in front of the empty space so the loveseat would be a left facing loveseat and your sofa is a right facing sofa. This is how it will appear. L/R facing. Meaning left/right facing. It is very important when ordered that it is done facing because if the sides are not equal they will be opposite of what you actually need.
