Amherst 2 Piece Sectional

Height: 34.6"

Width: 113.4"

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

Height: 34"

Width: 112"

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.

Cosmos Grey 2 Piece Sectional with Left Arm Facing Chaise: Featured Customer Review

"We absolutely love the low profile of this couch. It was perfect for opening up our living room without cutting off walking space to the kitchen. The color is neutral, but nice (matches our cat's fur, thankfully). The back cushions velcro on, so they do make a bit of a noise if you plop down, but they're very squishy and comfortable . . . Either way, I took a great nap on it today, so no complaints!" - Brittany

Paige Convertible Chaise Sleeper

Height: 34.6"

Width: 84.6"

Best Feature: Sleeper 

The Paige’s chaise isn’t just a chaise – it’s also a sleeper chaise. What’s more, it comes with a split back and 5 unique positions for arrangement, designed for saving space or expanding, as needed. In other words, it’s everything one could ever hope for in a sectional; year after year, the customer reviews tend to agree.

Height: 38"

Width: 114"

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.

Best L-Shaped Sectional

Amherst 2 Piece Sectional with Right Arm Facing Chaise

Height: 34.6"

Width: 113.4"

Best Feature: Spacious seating

What can we say? The Amherst’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!)

"We were long overdue for a good L-shaped couch, but struggled to find the right look, and especially, the feel. This had the right color, with enough gray in the white to cover small marks. Good support and space for two to comfortably lounge!" - JonB

Best Tufted Sectional

Arrowmask 2 Piece Sectional with Right Arm Facing Chaise

Height: 38"

Width: 115.5"

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.

"The couch was relatively easy to put together, the only challenge was fitting the legs on the bottom. The comfort and style of the couch is perfect! It’s comfortable without sinking in and has so much room for more than one person." - Samantha

Best Customizable Sectional

Aspen Tranquil Foam 2 Piece Sleeper Sectional 

Height: 31"

Width: 108"

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.

Height: 38"

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.
