BEST SECTIONALS for Your Living Room – What to Look for, Where to Buy! | Julie Khuu

BEST SECTIONALS for Your Living Room – What to Look for, Where to Buy! | Julie Khuu

This video rounds up my TOP 14 sectionals (with alternatives) to help you select the right sectional for your needs.

It’s no secret that I have an affinity for sectionals. I love how their modular configurations can work for any interior, regardless of size. Sectionals can be used to help demarcate space and divide the room into functional zones, especially useful in an open-concept space. You don’t lose precious real estate when every corner of the room can be used for seating, hosting large parties, and gathering your family all in one area. With so many different options to configure a sectional from the popular L-shape, petite sectionals with chaise lounge options, U-shape for conversation pits, even ones with sleeper sofas built-in to host last-minute guests, how do you choose the right one for you?

1. Crate and Barrel Lounge Sectional
2. West Elm Haven Sectional
3. Joybird Eliot Sleeper Sectional
4. CB2 Piazza Sectional
5. Wayfair Jasper Velvet Sofa and Chaise
6. Jarrett Sofa & Chaise
7. Mayme Velvet Sofa & Chaise
8. McKeel Sofa & Chaise
9. Anthropologie Relaxed Saguaro Sectional
10. Arhaus Kipton Sectional
11. Six Penny Neva Sectional
12. Article Abisko Sectional
13. Pottery Barn Big Sur Collection
14. Lulu and Georgia Fritzie Sectional Sofa
15. Z Gallerie Ventura Sectional
16. Burrow Block Nomad Leather 5-Seat Corner Sectional
17. Design Within Reach DWR Emmy Sectional

    We bought a sectional from Macy’s a couple years ago. After 6 months it became the most uncomfortable piece of garbage. I can’t even sit in it anymore. It kills my back and neck.

  4. Debra Fraser on February 7, 2023 at 5:00 am

    You are so helpful with all your information. Thank you!

  5. Bertha Z on February 7, 2023 at 5:01 am

    Hi Julie! Thank you for this excellent Informative video. (All of them are ) will definitely help me decide on the best modular for my small living room😊. I watched your video on furniture for small places, too. You’re the best!
    Thank you for sharing all your wonderful knowledge in interior design.
    BTW, I subscribed a few days ago when I saw your first video.

  6. kkdiva on February 7, 2023 at 5:01 am

    Julie! Somehow i can’t find sofa bed video. I am looking for sofa bed with firm one. Can you please send me link or videos? Please! Thanks!

    I’m on my second sectional and ready to move on. Bought a gray leather recliner sectional from Macy’s a few years ago. It was great in the beginning but now it hurts my back. No noticeable breakdown of materials. It just isn’t comfortable anymore. My husband often sits in the floor.
    I really like the style of the Kova by Albany Park but the size is too much for my space. After combing through how the love sac sactional is put together, I’m considering building my own to the proper scale for my living room.
    Thanks Julie for all of your information!

    Luxurious Sectional Sofa

  9. Arlene Coury on February 7, 2023 at 5:07 am

    How do you fel about purchasing a PB sectional on Ebay?

  10. GERONIMORE on February 7, 2023 at 5:07 am

    I can’t afford these 😢

  11. James Taylor on February 7, 2023 at 5:08 am

    WOW no lovesac?

  12. Matheus Pinto on February 7, 2023 at 5:08 am

    $1400k – “it’s so cheap!”

  13. James Boatman on February 7, 2023 at 5:08 am

    Great video! Quick question. The very first sectional you show at 1:02 is beautiful. Do you know what the manufacturer and model of it is?

  14. Anna Cipriano on February 7, 2023 at 5:10 am

    Does anyone know what sectional was the 2nd picture shown at the very beginning?

  15. Xander Park on February 7, 2023 at 5:13 am

    You look like a ghost. Need sun 🌞

  16. adanya salaam on February 7, 2023 at 5:15 am

    I almost bought a sofa from Arhaus…but, they are rather large(sectionals). I ended up with York slope deep seat chaise sectional from Pottery Barn in ivory(slipcovered)

  17. Sawyer's Girl on February 7, 2023 at 5:15 am

    I feel like the best sectional recommended on here sit too low.

  18. Haven on February 7, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Wayfair sofa? Unless you want a side of bedbugs I’d steer clear!

  19. E H on February 7, 2023 at 5:21 am

    What’s your thoughts between macys Radley 5 piece vs Ashley’s furniture tilney Sectional? Having hard time deciding!!

  20. D A on February 7, 2023 at 5:21 am


  21. E on February 7, 2023 at 5:22 am

    @1:00 <— which one is it?

  22. PEACE LOVE & JOY on February 7, 2023 at 5:23 am

    I cannot get behind ordering a couch of any kind without feeling it, sitting on it, it’s just too risky. Wayfair is really risky in my opinion.
    After searching and looking at so many sectionals, I happen to be in Big Lots, yes Big Lots and there was exactly what I was looking for! It was marked down from 1115.00 to 849.00 WOW!!! Fit perfectly in my small condo. Things come through for me if I relax and stay focused on what I need more than what I like 👍
    They ended up having one of their warehouse guys deliver it to my place for free 🤩
    I live less than a mile from the store and that’s why I was able to get it delivered and brought upstairs!
    Hard to imagine these days.
    $50 tip was unexpected – but I insisted they take it.
    What you do for others, you do for yourself.
    Love &Light 💛🌟

    All these picks (or most) had taller legs. I rather not see under my sofa or have to worry about vacuuming under a sofa all the time.

  24. Michelle David on February 7, 2023 at 5:25 am

    Thanks for the awesome video!

    I’ve had the Burrow Nomad Sofa for a bit over a year now and we are looking to upgrade. It looks great but it’s not very comfortable for us. At the time, we lived in an apartment with narrow stairs and it was during lockdown so we were trying to find a balance between decent shipping times and portability for the narrow stairs. That’s how we landed on the Nomad. Now that we have more space in our new place, we are looking for a sofa that is much deeper. Currently eyeing the West Elm Harmony, Restoration Hardware Cloud, or the Arhaus Kipton. Everything is going to take 4-6 months though!

  25. Sreejith Mohan on February 7, 2023 at 5:26 am

    Would you include rove concept milo sectional in this list

  26. Heather J on February 7, 2023 at 5:26 am

  29. meesha kaushal on February 7, 2023 at 5:28 am

    Hi Julie what about Beckham sectional from Bassett .. looks great in store have been reading reviews and it says Bassett is worst quality and customer service. Please reply asap

  30. Esther Bergling on February 7, 2023 at 5:28 am

    none of these are "reclining" sectionals…we have 2 leather sofa and loveseat. both are reclining…so hard to design around them!

  31. ann lavine on February 7, 2023 at 5:29 am

    what furniture style are these

  32. Jackie Cuba on February 7, 2023 at 5:29 am

    I LOVE when you break down information like this for us… it makes our lives so much easier when deciding what to buy for our homes, especially big ticket items like a sectional! THANK YOU!! I would love to see more videos like this where you do the research for us and give us recommendations on what’s worth buying. Can you suggest kitchen appliances please? And bedroom furniture would be nice too! Lol. Again, thanks for being awesome!

  33. Ella Se Moi on February 7, 2023 at 5:31 am

    Love this! Thanks so much for including the prices when you did made this video as companies that have increased their prices dramatically due to inflation are a huge turn off for me and helps me make a decision. I’m going to watch your other videos and also see if you’ve posted anything about the Love Sac

  36. Rich on February 7, 2023 at 5:36 am

  37. Barbara on February 7, 2023 at 5:36 am

    Sectionals from Costco

  38. Helda Nieves on February 7, 2023 at 5:36 am

    Too much money

  39. Making Modern Furniture on February 7, 2023 at 5:38 am

    Amazing 👍👍👍

  40. Monica on February 7, 2023 at 5:38 am

    Perfect timing! Thank you!!

  41. No Names on February 7, 2023 at 5:38 am

    This is the most helpful overview on youtube I have seen! And I have seen a whole lot! Thank you!

  42. taylor Marie on February 7, 2023 at 5:39 am

    Can you do a video on couches under $2k 😩

  43. Maritza on February 7, 2023 at 5:39 am

    Great ideas on sectionals but looking something on budget and colors HELP

  44. Kathirose Mazzorana on February 7, 2023 at 5:40 am

    I have to elevate my legs, so reclining sofas work best for me. Could you recommend some that are stylish and easy to clean? I presently have leather, but don’t like that bulky club look.❤️

  45. billidge on February 7, 2023 at 5:42 am

    I love my Dune sectional by Arhaus

  46. Ray Sabor on February 7, 2023 at 5:46 am

    Julie, Im impressed at the quality of your video content, the information you explain clearly and clean very nice

  47. grrt on February 7, 2023 at 5:49 am

    what about maiden home’s jones modular sectional – we’ve had it for 2 years and love it. certainly on the higher end of the brands you show here but its NC made and materials/quality has been excellent as advertised! also no RH sectionals shown – MH vs RH was our big debate when we were shopping for a new sectional. Any reason didn’t include those brands, thanks for doing this!

  48. Vashti on February 7, 2023 at 5:49 am

    VALYOU takes MONTHS to deliver. Do not order if you want it. They’re advertising is bait/switch.

  49. Richard Yanicky on February 7, 2023 at 5:50 am

    I have been looking for the perfect sectional for about 6 months. Your advise is great. I stopped by an Ethan Allen showroom and they helped me design a sectional that will fit what I am looking for. I have been to other local stores but wanted to try a more upscale offering. I am not turned off by what they offered but how would I compare them to the options you suggest? Some of what you suggest seem just as good.
