Sectional sofas come in a wide variety of fabrics including polyester, twill, microfiber and leather. The particular fabric used for the upholstering will help determine how long the fabric will last and how easy it will be to clean. The most durable of fabrics for use on a sectional is leather as it is sturdy and strong and can easily stand up to rough wear and tear. Spills are easy to clean on leather and as leather sectional sofas age, they develop a satiny patina that looks and feels wonderful for sitting.
The number of pieces that are chosen for a sectional sofa can establish the type of shape to fit the particular room being furnished. The traditional L-shape sectional will fit numerous different room shapes and sizes, and the U-shape offers movie style seating for media rooms. By adding or taking away a piece, a sectional can be made to fit into a smaller room, and usually most furniture dealers will be able to help you purchase additional pieces to make the sectional larger when it is moved to a bigger room.
A growing number of furniture brands offer reclining sectional sofas that have recliners on each end of the sofa for putting legs up without an ottoman or coffee table.
