Sectional Sofas

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. Redd-EDC-09-13-11-xln-67271928One of our favorite Redd rooms, the Dune sofa looks great in this TV room.

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. img44oDoesn’t it look great in this fresh sky blue color? img36oLayla 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.

    Hi there Lauren & Suzanne,
    I feel like you ladies really would love the JaxonHome.com line.

    The brick and mortar opened in 2006 in the Helms Bakery District in Los Angles (right by HD Buttercup,) but just recently we’ve grown toward the web, launching our first eComm effort in late fall. We are a factory owned and operated line of home furnishings and our leader and designer Victoria Richter also designs interiors and outfits whole homes with custom furniture pieces. We take a lot of pride in our product, and really feel that the Jaxon Home line would suit your style!

    Please do shoot me an email if there is ANYTHING I could talk you through. We’d love to host you if you ever make it out to LA.

    Fan of your blog, follower of your efforts on every platform!
    Much Love,
    Betsy

    also chiming in re: the leather. my husband has always wanted a fancy leather club chair but we have three non-declawed cats. so we bought a cheaper leather chair as a “trial run” for whatever $3k fancy restoration hardware chair he was lusting after. the cats destroyed it in short order. they have other things they like to scratch, but all it took was one afternoon of boredom for them and they shredded the arm of the chair. would not recommend leather chairs w/ cats unless they are at least front declawed (not that i’m recommending declawing, but if you just happen to have adpoted a cat from the pound that was already declawed, etc…)
