What is a modular sofa?

Modular or sectional sofas are made up of a number of individual pieces that can be arranged into a shape to suit any modern living space, large or small. Whether you’re looking for a cosy 2-seater, a space-saving corner sofa or a 6-seater to fit the whole family, our modular sofas can be adapted for your needs.

What are the benefits of a modular sofa?

Ideal for urban flats or smaller rooms, the configurable modular sofa can eliminate wasted space and give you more room to personalise the way you relax. The flexibility is also great in larger spaces if you like to change your layout to keep things fresh. Each individual unit fits through small doors, tight halls and can be manoeuvred up flights of stairs with ease.

How do they work?

Modular sofas not only make a great feature piece for an open-plan living space but also create a natural divide between kitchen, dining and living areas. With a modular corner sofa or L-shaped sofa you can create a cosy break-off seating area for the whole family to enjoy.

Who are they for?

One of the best things about the modular movement is that it moves and adjusts with you, adapting and changing as your needs do. Whether you need to accommodate a growing family, or just fancy a new seating layout, our modular sofas can be easily downsized, extended or re-arranged.

Ideas for setting up

You can choose to set up your modular sofa as an integrated seating unit or you can scatter the individual units around the room. Our left-hand, right-hand and singular units come in a range of designs and fabrics to suit your interior choices.

Find your perfect layout

Add as many seats as you need along one wall with the straight sofa or utilise the space along two walls with the corner sofa or dividual pieces that can be arranged into a shape to suit any modern living space, large or small. Whether you’re looking for a cosy 2-seater, a space-saving L-shape set-up. For larger rooms and bigger families U or C shaped seating arrangements can really bring a room to life.
