Sectional or L shaped sofas seem to be a hot item in the world of interior design and I totally get why. They are extra comfy, they provide lots of seating (usually 7 butts as we like to say at work) and they are very family friendly. My parents recently purchased one for our northern Michigan home (see design post here) and Jeff and I loved lounging on it during our post-wedding staycation. They are, however, not the easiest piece of furniture to work with. They are difficult to size and visualize in a room (lots of measurements involved), are generally expensive (its more like buying two sofas than one) and are often times sort of sloppy looking (think a giant recliner). Needless to say, we are sourcing quite a few of them at work so I have them on my mind. Here are a few of my favorite "sectional" inspiration images.
