Hi , everyone .

Welcome back to the channel .

I'm Julie .

And today I will be rounding up the top sectionals of 2021 for you while I have four sofas in my small ranch style home .

When I was sick , all I was thinking about was , you know , I just wanted a really deep loungey sectional to curl up into and heal and recover .

I did a ton of research .

I compiled this huge list and whittled it down to my top favorite sectionals .

Some of these sectionals I've sourced for my own clients .

Some has been high on my hit list and my radar for some time .

Now , a lot of these have really incredible reviews from online and in store retailers and of course , a bulk of it was recommended from my own family and friends .

If you've been looking for the perfect sectional to suit your aesthetic and needs this video is for you .

You all know from this channel that I have a huge affinity for sectionals .

I love how the modular configurations can work for any living room , family room or den .

I love how sectionals can be used to help demarcate space and divide the room into functional zones .

They're especially useful in open concept spaces .

You don't lose precious real estate .

When every corner of the room can be used for seating , you can host large parties , gather your family in one area .

There's tons of videos that highlight my love for sectionals .

There are so many different configurations for sectionals out there from petite sectionals for smaller studios and apartments .

L shaped , sectionals , sectionals with she lounges , U shapes , conversation pits even ones with sleeper sofas built in .

So you can host overnight guests on the fly .

But before we get into my favorites , let's talk about fabrics .

The number one tip for choosing an upholstery fabric is to always consider your lifestyle and needs .

Do you have young kids and pets that you need to account for ?

Look for easy to clean , low maintenance performance fabrics that you can spot clean with a wet cloth or even a Lysol wipe , which is what I typically use for my sofas .

Linen is a natural breathable fabric .

Great for hotter and humid climates .

Polyester or poly blends is usually my go to choice since it's more durable and stain resistant than natural fabrics .

Poly blends can also include microfiber or ultra suede .

Natural leather is great for pets that shed since it's so easy to wipe down .

But some leathers show scratch marks .

So be wary of that always get multiple samples and bring them into your space for lighting conditions to see how well they mesh with your interior vibe , touching and feeling the fabric is so important , especially if you're purchasing online .
