Selecting a sectional sofa is not a task to be taken likely. Not only does a sectional sofa tend to be a costly investment, but given its large size, it also tends to serve as a dominate focal point, setting the tone for the rest of the room. In that spirit, designer Sarah-Marie Lackey visits Lane Furniture to share her tips for choosing a sectional sofa.
Comfort vs. Aesthetics 
According to Lackey, many couples struggle to find a blend between comfort and appearance when shopping for their sectional sofa; your aim should be to find a sofa which encompasses both. 
Special Features
Feature-wise, your sectional sofa should be tailored to your unique preferences and habits. Many people enjoy a reclining feature if the sectional is meant for the living room or home theatre. Lane Furniture offers models which recline at the touch of a button, for optimal comfort when you’re having family movie night or binge-watching your favorite show on Netflix. Another neat feature: a built-in USB port, which is ideal for telecommuters who prefer to their work from the comfort of the couch.
Other Things to Consider
When planning for a sectional sofa, one of the most important things to consider is how it will fit into your room layout. Ask yourself questions, such as: what is the traffic pattern in your room like; does your sofa require an outlet or is it battery powered; if it requires an outlet, which wall can accommodate such a large furniture piece? A good rule of thumb to keep in mind when planning for a sectional, is to opt for a low-traffic area. This way, your sectional will be less likely to become a bulky obstacle when you, your family, and your guests spend time in the space.
