10 Easy Pieces: Modular Building Block Sectional Sofas

October 3, 2018

The modular sectional is a sofa style that appeals to the architect in us all. Made up of stocky, building block-like cushions, the sofas are designed to be separated, stacked, arranged, and rearranged. They function particularly well for the indecisive designer, frequent remodeler, or a family of climbers and fort builders. Here are our 10 favorites.

Her family likes to arrange the sofa in one large group in the center of the room or divide it into different groups and place it around the house. It’s made of a double-paneled poplar and pine plywood frame, spring base, and a poly and goose down cushion. It connects together with Velcro fastening and comes in 8 pieces for a whopping £10,296 from twentytwentyone.
