A sectional is a type of sofa that often comes in pieces that can be selected and connected to make a customized sofa for any space. Leather sofas are the most durable type of sofa, and they come in a number of different colors.

Sectionals allow for variation in design. They often have a bend that fits into a corner, or they curve around a room. Some sectionals are assembled on a base that does not allow the sofa to be reconfigured, but many sectionals include hooks on the sides of the individual seats so they can be rearranged at any time.
