There are many reasons to love a good sectional. Their L-shape makes it easier for multiple people to spread their legs or kick their feet up while an extra-wide chaise is perfect for a two-person nap. Sectionals are undeniably enviable, but we'll be the first to admit that they're often widely overused in spaces that frankly would benefit better from a smaller sofa and a pair of chairs (or a duo of parallel sofas). In some spaces, a sectional can simply look as though it's overtaking the entire room, leaving little space for extra seating or even accent tables.

That said, sectionals don't only belong in sprawling living rooms. Some of the best use of a sectional we've seen have been L-shaped sofas tucked into the corner of an extra-cosy (i.e., tiny) TV room or library. A good rule of thumb we've come to love is to reserve sofas with chaises for larger open spaces and tuck L-shaped sectionals into smaller corners. Convinced you need modular seating in your space? We've rounded up our favourite options, from small sectional sofas to sprawling modular pieces. No matter the size of your space, it's possible to have a sectional sofa—here's proof.
