Sectionals are the ultimate in lounging luxury and can maximize seating in small spaces, but they often can’t go with you to the next house. A sofa, by contrast, still affords lounging luxury, but is more flexible in a room. Two sofas in an L-shape with a table in between, or two sofas opposite one another with a couple of chairs in between, are the better choice for entertaining. And they’re more moveable from house to house. The bottom line: pick a lounging option you love, and don’t get caught up in the shape.
