Sectionals That Are Pretty

Rue
Sectionals can be functional but not always pretty. We love to entertain so I've always thought a sectional would be a great piece to have.  But I could never get past the boxy-ness of them.   Until now...

We had one many years ago and i loved that Don and I could both lay down and watch TV. Of course, that was before Lazyboy recliners.

Oh that victorian one...I think the third one down...is so cute! Love it!

I love looking a furniture displayed in room settings. These are all very pretty and interesting. Have a wonderful day. Linda

Cindy said...

Hello sweet B,
Who knew? Wow I have always felt the same way that you expressed today, but after seeing these images, I may have to rethink my bias! I think a person would still have to very carefully think the thing through and measure everything before purchasing one. I adore the grey one with crimson pillows! The second image is also gorgeous!
Have a lovely day, my dear friend.
Hugs, Cindy

Janet said...

Wow! those are some of the prettiest sectionals I have ever seen!

Wow! You have gathered some fabulous sectionals and I could move right in on that second shot with the zebra accents... love the whole look of that one

Hope that you have a lovely week, my friend!

Bisous,
Genie

Hi Tammy! Great post. These rooms are beautiful. I love the next to last pic. The sectional looks to be slipcovered...my newest obsession! Have a great day. I'm going to Kitchen Hospitality next to welcome your friend.

Susan said...

That taupe sectional is to die for!! How gorgeous is that!

Cindy said...

You are right...these sectionals are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Yeah, who thinks of those two words together: sectional and pretty!! I wouldn't, but these prove me wrong.

Heather said...

Wow...who knew? Thanks for sharing!

Good Morning Tammy Sweetie...
Oh my gosh what a beautiful share this morning. You know me, I am a wild child, so could we meet in the Zebra room for tea tonight? I have always wanted to go on a safari. I think this is as close as I will ever get.

Another beautiful share my friend. Hope you have a beautiful week. Today I am at Mardi Gras. Come on over and see.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I have a leather sectional in my finished basement & love it. Great inspirational pics!

Natalie said...

Thanks for the comment on my painting! And now I am officially obsessed with the pleats on the side of that first sectional. I wonder if I could add that to the side of a bench. Love it!
P.S. Following you back!

Hey these are fun to see. Our kids are always after us to get one for better use of space and more sitting area, but like you I always think of them as taking up too much room. These are all interesting, and I guess I like the white slip covered one the best--PB maybe? The last one is very elegant.

Tammy: I especially love that Audrey Hepburn hanging in the first photo! And, the sectional tucked under the stairway.

Best,
Bonnie

Oh I like your sense of style! We just got a new sectional and I love it! It is done is browns with big pillows in gold and beige. Following you now too!

Wendy said...

Enjoyed each picture, but then the last one stole my heart. I love it tucked under the stairs...could imagine myself curled up with a good book on a rainy afternoon.

Pamela said...

I agree with you Tammy I too could never get over the boxy-ness of sectionals! But I am loving the one in the first photo!!! Very beautiful!

Shirley said...

OMy Gosh..why didnt they make them like this when they first hit the stores. I would have loved one. Would love one now but just bought a new sofa. My bad luck..I love the third one and really love the whole look of the one under the staircase..Yum!
Thanks for making me drool.

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

I used to just hate sectionals but they can be so pretty now a days as you've shown here. I do think I could live with one. I love the wallpaper in photo 6.

Tammy,
Your making me want to decorate and move sooner than anticipating. Love the victoria one, I could see a pine dining table next to the one near the staircase. Would make a cozy dining area.

Great post!

Lisa said...

Oh my these are beautiful. I'm especially loving grey and tufted.

Cheers,

I have 2 sectionals and I love them....all of these you chose were great to look at!!! Great job in pointing out how different they can look!!

Donna said...

Tammy, I don't know how you find/think up the beautiful things that you do, but visiting your blog is like a visual vacation! You have a style that is amazing and class that is just...marvelous! Thanks for a pretty break today!

The Muse said...

Thank you for your kind compliments regarding my book of prose, which was so sweetly shared at Ms Bee's blog :)

I enjoyed reading this post...it brought back memories of our family's first sectional piece...ah, thank goodness my design sensibilities have ... "matured" lol

Sue @ House Pretty said...

Hi, thanks for being my newest follower! It would be my pleasure to return the favor. I see I have a lot to catch up on with your blog posts. Love the white sectional, with the pleated material on the sides. Very pretty! Then again, I am a lover of white. Now, as far as the grey one, Oh my gosh! Talk about make a statement when you walk in the room. It really has the WOW factor.

Julie Harward said...

It always leaves me in a dreamy mood to come here and look at all this prettiness..love it! ;D

Anita said...

I don't think there was one there that I don't like!

We just finished our basement and I think a sectional would be a good fit. The ones you have pictured here would get trashed by my kids and their friends, so I'll have to look for one that's attractive AND durable. :)

Jillian said...

Hubby and I were just talking about "MAYBE" getting a sectional for our next family room couch. Hmmmmmm...I will have to show him this post!

I would love to have one of those white sectionals in my family room. With something like that my hubby and I would spend more time there, it is in our basement. The room with the white fireplace is my favorite.

oh, I just love these sectionals...so pretty!! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I will be following yours too!

Sectionals are just to big. I'd rather have two small sofas in a room. If it works for your room then by all means but it's not my personal taste.
