Ashley Furniture offers a range of types of sectionals easy for a best fit:

L-shape in a classic traditional design with the Larkinhurst – Earth Living Room SectionalTip for you: When deciding to figure the convenient layout, better to face a single focal point (TV or chair, for instance) across from the longer part of the sectional.

U-shape in a contemporary style with the Pantomine Modular Sectional will become a good conversation corner for the crew.

Symmetrical has the same left and right arms, as an example we’ve chosen the ultra-plush Nesbit DuraBlend Antique Living Room Sectional.

Chaise sectionals with left-facing and right-facing chaise, Kendleton Left Chaise Sectional by Ashley Furniture and Masoli – Cobblestone Sectional w/ Right Facing Chaise.

Tip: You have undoubtedly noticed on Furniture Cart, that either reversible sectional or not, it can be “right” or “left” which refers to the arm placement when you look at it head on, not from the position when you sit on it.

Usually referred to as curved type, Pantomine Modular Sectional offers multiple configuration options to rearrange your room.

Pay your attention to another available design features when choosing the right sectional for your place. Due to versatile Modular Sectionals, it’s possible to arrange your piece of furniture whenever you like by purchasing extra pieces later to rearrange. Reclining Sectional means that one or several seats in sectional recline and a Sleeper Sectional comes with a full pull-out bed offering an opportunity for your guests to stay overnight.

Storage is a bed that has built in storage underneath the mattress area. You can avoid too much furniture in a room by having it in your bedroom and have a hidden storage right under your bed.

Platform Bed sits lower to the ground and has a headboard but no footboard, might have a solid base or the delicate legs. The slats are used for support instead of a box spring, which adds unwanted height for this style.

Sleigh Bed has distinctive arched shape of the headboard, footboard, or both. The curves of an old-fashioned sleigh gave the name to this bed style. The look is stunning, but you have to remember that this kind of bed shape claims additional floor space.

Poster Beds are defined by four decorative posts, rising up from each corner of the bed. The height of the posts ranges due to the style and design inception from very low posts clearing the mattress to ceiling height.

Panel Beds are with a tall decorated panel headboard, and sometimes footboard. They require a box spring to support the mattress. The crossbars made of wood or metal are spaced between the rails or bed frame to provide structural support, but not enough for mattress alone.

Upholstered Bed means that the headboard is covered with fabric or other soft material, making the bed comfortable. Some designs include all of the structural parts of bed upholstered, the others have only few sections of headboard upholstered.

Canopy Beds feature the rising posts but with crossbeams that connect them at the very top. As it looks grand, these kind of beds are best in rooms with tall ceilings. Traditional style canopies have detailed scrollwork and curves, contemporary ones employ simple geometric design.
