The shape of a sectional presents the perfect opportunity to hang a beautiful chandelier. Use a statement light in lieu of a basic light or ceiling fan for a designer look. Center the chandelier over the middle of the conversation area to finish the look with style.

Make it cozy. One of the great things about a sectional is that it’s made for lounging. Make it even more inviting by layering in soft throws and fluffy pillows. Opt for cottons and lighter fabrics in the summer months and chunky knits and faux fur during months with cooler temperatures.

Choose a neutral fabric. As tempting as a trendy pattern or bright color might be a neutral fabric has staying power. Most likely the largest piece of furniture in the space, a sectional will always be versatile in a cool grey or an earth tone. Work some trendy pattern and fun colors into the room with pillows and chairs which are more easily changed.

Pair it with a unique accent chair. Especially if it’s a smaller sectional like this one. A chair with a structural shape can add a new whole element of style to a classic look.
