Best Sectional Sofas - The Official List

The votes are in! Here are the year’s best sectional sofas.

Best Leather Sectional

Tatum Dark Grey 2 Piece Sectional

Best Features: Top grain leather - Power recliner

Top grain leather seats, a power reclining design and USB port, and adjustable headrests – it’s no wonder the Tatum consistently rakes in the top customer reviews year after year. Small space dwellers also appreciate the design’s versatile size.

Best Fabric Sectionals

Alder Foam 4 Piece Sectional w/Right Arm Facing Chaise

Best Features: Comfy seating - Neutral color

The Alder Foam is a tour-de-force of comfort and a top-rated bestseller for a reason. Featuring a soft, cozy fabric over a comfort foam blend designed for total lounging bliss – it’s the perfect companion for lazy weekends.

Amherst 2 Piece Sectional

Best Features: Foam cushions - Bold pillows

Featuring cozy beige upholstery designed for all-day lounging, it’s not hard to see why the Amherst deserves its ever-growing fanbase. Plus, it’s sturdy: like most of the sectionals on this list, the Amherst is built on a kiln-dried solid hardwood frame. But the real reason why it shines has to do with what’s not seen: a comfy foam composition that contours, cradles and supports, all at once.

Best Chaise Sofas

Cosmos Grey 2 Piece Sectional with Left Arm Facing Chaise

Best Feature: Big size

Almost since the moment the Cosmos was first introduced on the market a few years back, it’s proved to be a cult favorite among consumers. It's also proved that bigger is better: if you’re after roomy seating, it’s got it. Lots of it.

Taren II Reversible Sofa/Chaise Sleeper with Storage Ottoman

Best Feature: Sleeper 

The Taren’s chaise isn’t just a chaise – it’s also a sleeper chaise. What’s more, it comes with a storage ottoman, designed for storing blankets, pillows and the like. In other words, it’s everything one could ever hope for in a sectional; year after year, the customer reviews tend to agree.

Best Value

Lucy Dark Grey 2 Piece Sectional with Left Arm Facing Chaise

Best Features: Two-piecer - Modern design

If you’re on a tighter budget, the Lucy is eager to rise to the occasion. Features include modern track arms, a spacious chaise and a rev. A low price tag just the cherry on top of this top-reviewed sectional design.

Egan II Charcoal Sofa with Reversible Chaise

Best Features: Big size - Affordability

Your search for the most comfortable, most affordable sectional is over. Meet the Egan: a massive three-seater whose sole purpose is to serve up unbeatable comfort, day in and day out. It’s no wonder so many customers have felt the need to return the favor with 5-star ratings.

Best Modern Sectionals

Mcdade Graphite 2 Piece Sectional with Left Arm Facing Armless Chaise

Best Features: Track arms - Supportive comfort

While the statement pillows and sleek lines of the McDade technically classify it as ‘modern,’ it’s anything but stuffy. Take one glance at its customer reviews, and you’ll see what we mean. All told, a total comfort design.

Whitley Sectional by Nate & Jeremiah

Best Features: Deep seats - Performance fabric

‘Come for the style, stay for the feel,’ should be the motto of the Whitley. Features include luxe-to-the-touch fabric over comfort foam cushioning, and an attention-grabbing silhouette. We’ve long held the belief that the Whitley makes a statement every possible way; its customer ratings tend to agree.

Best L-Shaped Sectional

Turdur 2 Piece Sectional

Best Feature: Spacious seating

What can we say? The Turdur’s customer reviews pretty much have it covered, so we’re just going to let them speak for themselves. (“Super comfortable,” “Best sofa ever,” and, simply, “Perfect” are just a few of our favorites!)

Best Reversible Sectional

Egan II Cement Sofa with Reversible Chaise

Best Features: Reversible chaise - Versatile size

The Egan wins at the versatility game. Its sleek size, neutral color and reversible configuration make it adaptable to almost any home style and floor plan. Customers also tend to appreciate the portable ottoman that comes with it.

Best Tufted Sectional

Arrowmask 2 Piece Sectional with Right Arm Facing Chaise

Best Features: Tufted back - Chaise

The Arrowmask features a cozy charcoal finish and comfy, spacious chaise – but the tufted upholstery steals the show. Also worth noting is its durability factor; “easy-to-clean” and “extra strong frame” are common motifs within the Arrowmask’s customer reviews.

Best Customizable Sectional

Aspen Tranquil Foam 2 Piece Sleeper Sectional 

Best Features: Sleeper - Customizable

A part of the Special Order program, the Aspen comes with 100+ fabric and configuration options, which means that the options for customization are virtually limitless. While there are hundreds of high-rated sectionals in the Special Order program, we’re singling the Aspen out for its unassuming style. Not completely modern, not completely traditional, but rather a “blank canvas” silhouette just waiting to come alive with customization.

Best Reclining Sectional

Tatum Dark Grey 2 Piece Sectional with Right Arm Facing Armless Chaise

Best Features: Adjustable headrest - USB

Last on this list, but first in the hearts of many recliner-loving consumers. (See the Tatum’s reviews to get an idea of what we’re talking about here!) Star features include adjustable headrest, USB and, of course, power reclining technology.
