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 .
Let's dive right into my top sectionals list of 2021 .
And this is in no particular order starting with a crate and barrel lounge sectional .
I've sourced this sectional for my own clients .
I've tested it out in the store .
I mean , it's just downright marvelous when the proportions feel right .
You just know it .
This lounge sectional features deep low seats , soft fiber down , blend back cushions that you can just sink into .
It has slim modern track arms .
You can specify it with shes options , bumper options with a U shaped configuration .
This is my personal favorite , a left or right arm facing armless love seat .
There's over 90 different fabric options and colors .
So there's something for everyone .
The West Elm Haven sectional , I know so many people who have the sectional and for good reason , it's so comfortable .
You can customize it with a full skirted base wood legs , metal legs , deep sheds , sectional ends , a terminal shed sectional , double wide shes L shaped wedge .
There's so many options .
I especially love the Haven loft three piece sectional .
This sectional from West Elm features plush seats .
The tapered wood legs give it a mid century vibe , but the metal legs give it an industrial vibe .
The skirted base can feel modern and contemporary in any type of setting .
It's one of those shapes that really go with any interior style .
Moving on to the Joy Bird Elliott Sleeper sectional .
I love that .
It has a mid century modern vibe and a full pull out sofa tucked right in .
You can't even tell that it's a sofa bed by day , it's a loungey sectional with a comfortable shes feature and by night you can host sleepovers .
It comes in 18 different fabrics and color options with velvets , pet friendly upholstery and safeguard treatments .
Next , we have the CB two Piazza sectional .
One of the key features of this sectional is the end piece .
You can specify no backs .
So it's great for open concept layouts that meet that functionality .
You can hop in from one room and out the other quite easily .
It's long lean and super deep and I love that it's low to the floor .
It's great for young kids .
So it's easy for them to climb onto the back .
Cushions are a down blend .
The frame is made of sustainable hardwood .
The drawback is that it only comes in two fabrics , the white polyester linen blend , which is my personal favorite and the new espresso brown velvet .
Moving on to Wayfair .
Wayfair is an endless , endless treasure trove of sectionals , but I have managed to whittle it down to my ultimate favorite for small spaces .
I love the Wayfair Jasper velvet sofa and she it's so chic and has plenty of space for four .
The velvet fabric is soft and comfortable the shed is deep and loungey .
The seat cushion covers are removable so they're easy to launder when soiled .
I love the dark and moody colors .

Sometimes the negativity is warranted and relevant , but sometimes they just don't apply to you .
