The secret key to having a welcoming living room that every family member will love is choosing a fine and comfortable reclining sectional sofa.
When you’re searching for a piece of furniture for your home, it’s always a big deal. It is an even more intimidating when you’re in the market for living room furniture.
It needs to be functional, comfortable, and yes aesthetically pleasing because often it is the first thing that people see when they enter your home.
I know that the task can seem daunting, and overwhelming, but never fear I’m here to help make it less complicated.
In this day and age, the first thing that I do before I hit the stores for anything, is check online. It is a convenient, comfortable, less anxiety inducing experience, and often it helps me decide what it is that I want, or don’t want without the added pressure of a salesperson following me around.
They mean well, but sometimes it induces panic in me to hurry up and buy something.
Amazon, or any online store takes away that pressure in the beginning stages of figuring out what you want.
Also, the beauty of these online stores is that you may find your dream sofa from the comfort of your home, or even your work desk. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss you’re shopping for furniture, it’ll be our little secret, we promise.
My absolute favourite place to research items, even furniture, is Amazon for several reasons. They have a variety of options readily available at my fingers from countless companies, to fit any budget no matter the item, and consumers leave detailed reviews when they’ve purchased something.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always base every purchase I make on reviews, but it does help me narrow down my choices if they are heavy handed in one direction or another. On Amazon, not surprisingly, I found some fabulous options for reclining sectional sofas to fit almost any budget in a variety of decor tastes.
In no time I was lost in a vortex of beautiful choices to recommend to you, and I had to narrow it down to just a few examples so as not to overwhelm you, which was difficult – but I managed. From the hundreds I looked at, I chose five of the most appealing, with the best ratings listed to show you. Those that chose these sectionals were pleased with their purchase.
The first eye-catching sofa I discovered was the Homelegance Pecos 3 Piece Reclining Sectional in red gel leather. The upholstery is not real leather, does not contain leather, and is easy to clean. It is beautiful but exceptionally bold. This piece offers no sag construction with full foam seat and an easy to use reclining system.
It measures 95x105x39h inch; assembly is required. If you want a statement piece, this is definitely it. The cost is $1649.00, but it does come with free shipping, which will save you a pretty penny.
Secondly, Furniture of America Ladden Elephant Skin Microfiber Sectional in dark Brown. It is an understated piece, tasteful, and will blend in wonderfully with neutrals or muted colors.
A great addition to those whose tastes run to Earth tones, such as my own, and it looks extremely comfortable.
The sectional is 133″W x 116″D x 39″H. The price is $1099.99 with free shipping.
Next up is a Serta S307701127L Copenhagen Reclining Sectional with Left Storage Chaise. This sectional is in a tasteful dusk beige. If you like the modern look, and you’re on a budget this sofa is something that would be an amazing addition to your home.
It is 32x89x36 and comes ready to assemble in two compact boxes. Perfect for the home where you need to maximize sitting with minimal room.
It will only set you back a mere $799.99 plus free shipping.
Another budget-friendly option is the Acme 50510 Zanthe Motion Sectional Sofa in brown polished microfiber. It has a modern meets antiquated look and is a statement piece. It has double stitching detail and a hand latch recliner.
This sofa is a steal at $614.34 plus free shipping.
I’m not even in the market for a sofa, and I’m tempted to grab this one myself.
An attractive option is a six piece sectional by U.S Livings. It is made of the finest leather air material which allows the sofa to breathe thereby helping to prevent moisture from accumulating on the piece, and the one I found is in dark brown.
It measures 110x92x40 and the price tag is a bit heavier than the last sofa I mentioned above, but it is well worth the price for the quality that you’d be purchasing.
It is $1279.00 plus free shipping.
In summation, there are many factors to take into consideration when shopping for your sofa soul mate – how much space do you have to work with? What are the most important key points that you will not compromise on?
Will you decorate the living room around the sectional making it the focal point, or does it need to fit into the decor you already have? Does it need to be easy to clean because of children, pets, or spilling prone adults such as myself?
Just as importantly, what is your budget? Are you willing to go over-budget to accommodate your needs/wants where furniture is concerned?
With any luck, this is a piece that will last you for years, so it’s an important decision to make and not one to be taken lightly.
Take your time, and remember that it isn’t a race. It could take weeks, or months to find your perfect sofa, or you may get lucky and have a ‘love at first sight’ moment.
Only you will know what you have found the perfect piece, it is important not to settle – if you do you’ll wind up with buyer’s remorse which is unfair to both you and the couch.
So listen to your gut, and your heart and you’ll be reclining on the perfect reclining sectional in no time.
