If you have children or pets, the Harris sectional’s high platform and short cushions give it additional support and buoyancy, which means more resiliency over time. Plus, all the edges of the sofa are upholstered, and there’s no exposed hardware, making the Harris a safer option for families with kids. The sectional's 35″ seat depth also makes it easy to get on and off of, whatever your height. Add your choice of performance upholstery, of which there are hundreds to choose from, and no amount of spilling or cat scratching will get in the way of you having a beautiful, comfortable, long-lasting sofa.

The Dalton sectional's low-profile, minimalist design and tall, bench-style seat cushions make an immediate visual impression.

From the curves of its walnut platform and legs to its wide, inviting seats, the Parker sectional is an authentically mid-century modern piece that's a dream for aesthetically minded shoppers. It can be customized to fit spaces large and small, with medium-firm, wide seats and a chaise that makes it highly nappable. The Parker can work as its own statement piece in a room with minimal decor but also pairs beautifully with eclectic, maximalist style, all while looking just as striking.

The platform-supported Harmony sectional has extra-plush cushions that make it reminiscent of the step-down sunken living rooms of the ’60s. However, it's also one of the most contemporary sofa styles West Elm has at the moment. It’s truly cloud-like to lay on, and the many pillows that adorn the sectional have varied amounts of fill, producing back support where it’s needed and head, arm, and neck support on the sides. It’s practically made to nap on, with a retro, stylish appearance that's just as easy on the eyes as it is on the body.

As one of West Elm's plushest sectionals, The Haven is ideal for those who love to stretch out, lay down, sit up, or get creative with their lounge positions.

True to its name, the Haven provides comfort no matter where you end up on it, especially when you customize the modules and sizes to perfectly fit your space.

Apartment dwellers can have it all, as long as they have the Urban Sleeper sectional. With a traditional aesthetic, a spacious storage chaise lounger, high-pile plush seating, and customizable upholstery, the Urban is versatile enough to suit a range of decor schemes. What makes it an overachiever among small-space sectionals, however, is its Queen-sized pull-out and oversized storage compartment. Everything moves easily, and the top of the chaise closes softly with or without the easy-pull tab — no finger-crushing here.

If you're someone who works from your living room sofa (whether out of preference or due to a lack of space), the Axel is a solid choice. Shoppers can customize the sectional's leg height, and choosing taller legs can add some significant under-sofa storage space — another bonus for those who work from the living rooms of their small-ish apartments. With its upright posture, firm cushions, and smooth leather, the Axel is soft and comfortable while also providing a polished look.
