They range in length anywhere from 9 to 14 feet and can fit a bunch of people comfortably. For large living rooms and family rooms sectional is a perfect creating an impressive visual centerpiece, while at the same time providing extra seating capacity.

Sofa/ Loveseat – a sectional unit is typically with two- or three-seats and an arm at one end. If you’re expecting overnight guests, you can purchase a sofa section with a sleeper.

Wedge – a special chair section that lets your sectional arrangement turn a 90º angle. The shape of the seat back can be squared or curved.

Chair – with an arm on either the left or right site, this piece becomes the end of a sectional.

Chaise – usually has arm on either the left or right side it lets you to stretch your legs out and offers extra space to play board games and do homework.

Armless chair – a chair section with no arms usually goes between sectional pieces. Adding armless chairs lets you extend the overall sectional length and seating capacity.

Ottomans – provide additional seating for guests as well as a comfortable way to put your feet up.
