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.


Sections starting at $195

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.

Sections start at $200

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.

Sections from $418.25

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.

Sections start at $499

Quadra has a relaxed, clean look and is available in bits, including corners, sides with arms, chaises and individual sections.


Sections starting at $699

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.

Sections starting at $699

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.

Starting at $2,597 (for a 3 piece configuration)

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.

Sections starting at $833

You can mix up the colors of this simple sectional for a funky look.

Sections starting at $1,550

You can choose from a few different end pieces to create a unique look.
