Pros
  • Space-saving design
  • Great leather shades
  • Even has a built in USB charger
Cons
  • Not the largest option

Need a sectional that suits any—literally any—decor? Burrow has you covered. The Nomad has a modern shape, it’s available in a few really nice leather upholsteries, and you can choose between several options for the legs.

Firm cushions that’ll last a while make it perfectly livable. Toss in some bolster pillows or an ottoman for a little extra comfort and you’re all set. This is why Burrow has taken over the D2C couch game.

Most Unique Sectional

Castlery Hamilton Round Chaise Sectional Sofa

Pros
  • Fun shape
  • Round chaise is more versatile than rectangular
  • Incredibly comfortable
Cons
  • Not the most pet-friendly; cats can really dig into the fabric

You can’t click into a furniture website without seeing a sectional with that rectangular chaise. We just showed you one. (Spoiler: There are a lot more on the way.)

So this round chaise from Castlery feels truly unique. And it’s not without its practical benefits. The chaise fits multiple people, and the shape accommodates every imaginable lounging style. If you’re worried about the unusual form, it’s toned down by the simple sofa half and the neutral upholstery. It’ll work in your space, trust us.

Best Shaped Corner Sectional

CB2 Roma Curved 3-Piece Sectional

Pros
  • Cool shape
  • Good upholstery options
  • Available in muted twills and bold velvets
Cons
  • Shape means it takes up more space

We included a few of the options on this list for their fun or interesting shapes, but this corner sectional from CB2 might take the cake. We love coked-out, rounded ’70s and ’80s interior design, and this half-circle sectional takes it to the extreme. It’s a really fun piece of furniture with some equally fun fabric options.

But the shape is also the only real problem you might face. Because it’s round, it doesn’t fit neatly into a corner. This isn’t a sectional that will maximize the space in a small room. It’s made to be the centerpiece.

Best Build-Your-Own Sectional

The Citizenry Helm Sofa

We’ve loved the Citizenry for a while now. The brand partners with artisans across the world and gives them a platform to sell their specialties. Think hinoki wood furniture from a workshop in Japan, rugs from weavers in Morocco, and leather from a family in Portugal.

The company’s new sofa is built in California with plush but resilient foam, a beautiful walnut base, and a handful of luxe upholstery options. Every couch is made to order and is high-quality enough for you to pass down some day.

Oh, and to make it a sectional, buy a matching ottoman or two in the same upholstery as the sofa.

Pros
  • Plush vegan fill cushions
  • Modular and easy to move around
  • Optional storage ottomans
Cons
  • Modular pieces might slide apart, depending on your floors

A pit sofa is one of our favorite types of sectional. It’s complete luxury—perfect for bingeing TV, curling up with a book, or just sleeping all day.

Albany Park’s Kova is our favorite pit sofa, far and away. The cushions are plush, and the moveable pillows let you set it up how you like, depending on the day.

Tech? But it’s a couch… Well, it’s a couch with built-in speakers, and it won an Esquire Gadget Award this year. Fully immerse yourself in whatever TV or film you’re watching with subwoofer satellite systems planted under your ass. Every background footstep echoes, every musical drop is emphasized by the bass, and it’s all happening right where you’re watching from. (Bonus: Lovesac has a ton of customization options.)

One of Italy’s most iconic postwar designs, the Bellini sofa is a gallery piece that you can display in your home for the low, low price of… $6,000.

Wait, wait, wait! Before you go, it really is a better value than you think. It seems cerebral, but the design is more low-key in person. It’ll work with any decor, and the materials are so high quality that it’ll last you decades. Plus, it’s actually comfortable.

Best Sectional for Small Apartments

TUTB Sleeper Sectional with Storage

Stuck in a small city apartment? Constantly have friends crashing at your place? We’ve got the sectional for you. This sleeper is sized for apartments, has storage in the chaise, and pulls out to a full-size bed.

Other than that… it’s pretty bare-bones. Doesn’t look incredible, but by no means is it ugly. Reviewers say the fabric is easy to clean, though there aren’t a ton of options in terms of color.

Sofas cost a lot—most everything on this list would set me back about a month’s pay, so trust me, I know value. And as for the value of looks, feel, and design, this mid-century sectional on Amazon is as good as it gets.

It mimics more expensive sofas in appearance and has some surprisingly nice upholstery options. You don’t need much else, honestly.

While Floyd does Scandinavian well, the Danish brand Hay is one of the main exporters of that look and design ethos to America. This couch, with its fun soft-and-rounded shape, is an excellent corner sectional.

But what really gives this one the “best-looking” title are the upholstery options. We love elevated design, but customization matters, too, and Hay offers some great upholsteries. There’s no way one of the swatches won’t look perfect in your home.

It’s right there in the name. This sectional is perfect for cozying up, turning on the TV, and just chilling out. With big, plush cushions and pillows to match, you’ll never want to get up. Plus, Sundays’ proprietary LiveLife fabric is one of the best stain-resistant fabrics on the market.

Maiden Muir Sectional

The wooden structure of this Maiden sectional is really stunning. It wraps all the way around the couch and even incorporates a built-in side table. It’s a perfect blend of form and function, and in the more natural wood finishes, it gives your space a nice rustic feel.

The only drawbacks are going to be size (it’s big!) and, less likely, all that wood. If you’ve got hardwood floors or a space that’s already pretty woody, you just want to make sure everything will live harmoniously, because this couch is going to be your centerpiece.

West Elm Double Wide Chaise Sectional

We really love a double-wide sectional. The chaise portion is essentially a bed in your living room. Great for lounging, especially when there’s more than one person who wants to stretch out.

We especially like the long wooden base, which really pops against the upholstery. Speaking of, West Elm offers well over 100 swatches to choose from. If you really want to try something new—a splash of color or a novel fabric—this is a great piece to do that with.

Pros
  • Incredible price
  • Easy Amazon shipping
Cons
  • Not the most long-lasting quality

But if you really need value, you gotta go where value lives. While Amazon is pretty desolate in terms of furniture, this velvet sectional is not a bad shout: design-y enough and with three decent color options. For under $1,000, there’s not much you can complain about.

Pros
  • Best leather on just about any sofa
  • Four recliners
  • Seats and cushions contour to your body
Cons
  • Massive price tag

Not satisfied with an ottoman? You really, really want a reclining sectional? It’s going to cost you, but this sectional is everything you could desire and more.

Arhaus makes this beautiful leather sectional with four recliners built in. The seats allow you to sink back, but the big cushions keep you supported. It’s the height of luxury, and for that reason it’s got the highest price on this list.

How We Choose the Most Comfortable Sectionals

line break

Don’t just trust our picks. Take a look at our grading criteria.

Comfort: This is where we’re different from other places. We’re not just basing our opinions on Amazon reviews. We hit the showrooms and try this stuff out. To get a spot on our list of the most comfortable sectionals, it has to be, well, comfortable.

Materials: This goes hand in hand with comfort: The upholstery needs to feel nice. Plus, it has to wear well, and the frame needs to be designed to last.

Price: We’ll never recommend cheap stuff just because it’s cheap, but we’ll always hunt for a good deal. We like to find that balance.
