The most obvious advantage that sectional sofas have over typical sofas is that they have multiple positions that they can be put into. Sectional sofas can be made into a longer type of sofa, a corner sofa and any shape in between. This allows you to adapt your furniture to your space rather than trying to create the room around your sofa. Sectional sofas are very versatile in this manner.
However, depending on fabric choices a Tuxedo sofa could be used in a contemporary home. Contemporary styles include sock arm, channel back and sectional. Some sofas come with pillows attached to the sofa, some come with loose pillows that you can free style any way you choose. Another thing that gives your sofa a definite style is fabric choice. When you visit most furniture stores you'll have the ability to first choose the style sofa you want and then pick your choice of fabric. Some manufacturers have 30 or more different fabrics you can choose from when you are designing a sofa, with the only limit being how much money you want to spend. The choice of fabric can add thousands of dollars to the final cost of a sofa. Bold bright colors and geometric designs would be used on contemporary sofas and softer muted colors and prints would be used on traditional sofas.
It is crucial that you measure your space and work out the ideal size that your sofa needs to be. Think about how many people you need to seat regularly and where the best placement in the room would be (keeping in mind doorways and other furniture pieces). It's a great idea to measure your current sofa to get an idea or alternatively, measure out on the ground with masking tape or newspaper different sizes. This will help you visualise the item in the room and how you move around it. Secondly, even though it may fit within your required space the overall proportion will impact the look within the room. A sofa with chunkier or heavier overall proportions will appear larger in the room, whilst a sofa that is raised from the floor and has slim arms and seat proportions will appear lighter and visually consume less space. Use this to your advantage, look for heavier styles if you are looking to fill a large room and vice versa, and be aware of the impact the showroom has on the look of the sofa, in general showrooms will be very open and have high ceilings, making all sofas look smaller than they are.
