For years the sectional sofa has mostly been treated as a functional piece due to its ample and comfortable seating. Lately, though, I have noticed a budding trend of fashionable fabrics, vibrant hues and exceptional embellishments, letting the sectional be the star of the show.
In the right space these sofas can provide function while accentuating the overall design style. In fact, a living room from one of my favorite design projects popped up on DoodleHome.com recently in an article titled “Living Room with White Sectional,” which inspired this post.
The Tribeca penthouse (pictured above) was a dream to design. With its stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, warm wood floors and loads of natural sunlight, it was simple to incorporate the fundamental Feng Shui principles to create the perfect energy flow. I filled the space with clean lines, straight and curvy shapes, vibrant colors, modern art and a mix of metal and glass. The sectional is certainly a highlight with the colorful blue, white, silver and lavender silk and velvet pillows.
Here are a few more sectionals that pack a punch.
