One of the furniture pieces that our clients often request for their homes is the sectional sofa. While it’s not our favorite piece to specify, the available styles have really improved over the past ten years. Even Suzanne has stopped cringing at the idea of using them. In the end, you can’t deny the comfortability factor, or that there are some pretty good looking forms out there. NYC based interior designer Miles Redd has found what he must consider the perfect sectional as he uses it again and again in his clients’ homes. His favorite sectional is the Climate by a manufacturer called Dune; it was featured in his most recent project published in House Beautiful this month upholstered in a luxurious chocolate-brown velvet.
Here’s Dune’s Climate sectional with a chaise, below.
Redd also used the Dune sectional in this Hampton’s house fabricated in white leather. Notice how he uses the plug-in wall sconces as parentheses on either end of the sofa. One of our favorite Redd rooms, the Dune sofa looks great in this TV room.
And in a house in the Bahamas in hot pink!
As much as we love the modern lines and chic tufting of the Dune sofa, it is quite pricey, especially when you start customizing it as Redd has. So, where else can you find an elegant sectional that doesn’t say “man cave”? We like this Williams Sonoma Home sectional for its sophisticated arms and low back. Doesn’t it look great in this fresh sky blue color? Layla Grayce makes a sectional of the classic George Smith style, English roll arm sofa. It’s hard to find a tight back sectional sofa that is also really comfortable.
A more modern piece by Sofa.com. This is the Leon sectional.
Another favorite is Cisco Brother’s Tristan sectional.
