If you're looking for a sofa to fit an unusual space, or you want the flexibility of reconfiguring your seating after a move, a modular sofa can be a great option. You can buy exactly the pieces you need, and arrange them (and rearrange them) however you like. It's a little bit like playing with LEGOS, but for furniture. Here are some of the best options.
The VALLENTUNA offers the option of purchasing seats and backs separately, which leads to a myriad of different configurations. Some of the sections have concealed storage or fold out into sleepers, for even more flexibility.
Components for the SÖDERHAMN include a one-seat section, a two-seat section, a corner section, a chaise, and an ottman, which makes for a lot of possibilities—and the prices are quite reasonable, too.
This is another one where seating and back pieces can be purchased separately, which allows for a lot of versatility. Tillary is also available with tufted backs, and in a 'retro' style with long, thin legs.
This Togo-esque design comes at a much friendlier price point—the 4-piece sectional pictured is $1,749.50, and individual sections are available as low as $418.25.
Quadra has a relaxed, clean look and is available in bits, including corners, sides with arms, chaises and individual sections.
This sectional looks like a great option for those who prefer slouchier, more relaxed sofas. You can purchase corner pieces, or individual sections with or without arms.
The nice thing about the Crosby is that it's a modular sofa that doesn't look like a modular sofa: you can assemble the pieces together to create something that looks just like a traditional sofa—and then take them apart again when you want to rearrange them.
You can buy a pre-configured combination (like the massive pit pictured above, $5,754), or purchase the components (corner chair, armless chair, ottoman, and storage ottoman) individually at a Bassett store.
You can mix up the colors of this simple sectional for a funky look.
