Ordering a Custom Sectional Sofa: A Quick Overview

Ordering a Custom Sectional Sofa: A Quick Overview

Sectionals have been a popular seating option with homeowners for many years. Ordering a custom size and layout can be scary though because you can't see the final product before committing. A small fabric swatch looks completely different on a large sofa. Here is our guide to ordering a sectional sofa from an Amish upholstery shop.

Measure Your Space

When you are start browsing the options available, have your room dimensions ready to go. Measure your walls, other pieces of furniture in the space, and pay attention to the walkways you naturally use.

A large sectional brings needed bulk and weight to an open floor plan, grounding the space. Smaller rooms take advantage of the modular sofas to adding seating in unused corners.

Choose Your Layout

The ability to customize the layout is one of the top benefits of custom furniture. The optional chaise lounge can be left facing or right facing, depending on your room.

A standard sectional is 3-4 separate units, assembled after delivery. Each unit can be custom sized for the best fit your living space. Add a few seat cushions to the left side or eliminate a seat on the right side, your choice.

Choose Your Design Style

Handmade upholstery offers many color and style options. Fabrics, faux leathers and top grain leather hides are available to complement any interior design style. In a formal setting, choose a style with firm back support, allowing comfortable seating for conversation around the room.

Casual, relaxed living rooms often demand comfortable lounging areas. The overstuffed cushions and deep seats of the Westbrook Sectional Sofa are a modern family favorite.

Select Your Fabric or Leather

Perhaps the most intimidating part of ordering a custom sofa is the fear of picking the wrong fabric. Of course, there are hundreds of color swatches to choose from! As a rule, fabric tends to appear lighter on a large sofa than on a small color sample.

In most cases, we recommend choosing a solid color for sectionals. Select a complementary print for an accent chair or accompanying throw pillows. Some patterns and prints may look busy on a large sofa.

Spend time browsing home decor magazines and websites to find rooms that have the overall feel you want to achieve. Farmhouse living rooms often have natural wood tones and neutral paint colors. They usually have a sectional couch in a light fabric color that complements the room.

A luxurious, leather L-shaped sofa is a commanding focal point with timeless appeal. Choose a classic color that will blend with any interior design trend. Bonus points for being easy to clean!

Stationary or Reclining

Along with the traditional sofas, we offer several high-quality, custom reclining sectional sofas. Everyone gets a place to put your feet up at the end of the day.

Adding power recline allows you to find the perfect location and angle for relaxation. Elderly people or those with a physical disability love this option, as it requires no manual force. Please note that the power reclining sectionals have automated motors and must be plugged into an electric outlet.

Have Confidence in the Craftsmanship

Our local, Amish artisans build each sectional using only finest materials. The frames are solid Maple wood for strength and durability. The upholstery shop cuts and sews all fabric and leather. Every cushion is a solid piece of high-density foam, no loose fiber fill that separates and sags quickly.
