Modular sofa for every budget, style and space

Modular sofas don’t just make the best use of available space but also help to upgrade the entire look of your living room 

Sofa sets are the centrepiece of any social space today. They define your living room and reflect your style and personality. This is why they are considered the most critical element of living room décor. However, picking the correct type of sofa for your home can be a daunting task. 

Enter – modular sofa sets. What is a modular sofa? It is a combination of various similar-looking modules or sections that can be rearranged to create the desired look in the living room. As opposed to a regular sofa, a modular sofa allows you the flexibility to use parts of the sofa in different areas of the house.

So, whether you want to reset the ambience of your living room, or choose your style, match the fabrics and mix things up – take a look at our curated list of modular sofa designs for all kinds of homes.

Houston Fabric Three-Seater Modular Sofa With Chaise

We are totally in love with chaise modular sofas for the simple reason that they are highly versatile. Their clever design makes them the perfect choice for small spaces. The extra module to recline is a stunning piece of extra sofa space for visitors to relax. See that you measure with precision before purchasing a chaise – narrow or wide enough to fit two, or whether you want to mix it up for the other part of the ‘L’. Take this classy grey three-seater modular sofa set, for example. The chaise turns this modular sofa into an L-shaped sofa and can comfortably accommodate one person. This modular sofa design is ideal for homeowners who don’t want to spend much on living room furniture.

A Modular Sectional Sofa That Fits Into Any Space

Sectional modular sofas are large compared to other sofa sets, and you also get to assimilate the multiple sofa sections in different conformations as per your taste and needs. A modular sectional sofa set generally includes a two-seat or loveseat attached to a chair or single sofa, a built-in chaise on either the left or right arm, and a separate two or three-seater with adjustable arms/headrests. This modular sofa in a neutral colour is arranged in a way to create a cosy space for spending quality time with your loved ones. The upholstered coffee table serves as the focal point for the sofa set and can be used as a seating option too when needed. What we find fascinating about this modular sofa design is that you can easily shift the two free-standing sections to other parts of the home when needed without ruining the look of your living space.

Modular Couch For A Nomadic Soul

Want to make your home look airy and luxurious? Opt for a Scandinavian modular sofa design like this for your open living room. The comfy yet pristine white modular sofa is bound to become your favourite spot to laze around after a busy day at work. The armless and backless pattern stresses being the typical Scandinavian at heart. You can move the modules around to create an arrangement where everyone can face each other during a party, or aim every module towards the TV during movie nights. The green module on the side not just breaks the monotony of white, but also plays the role of an ottoman coffee table when you’re hosting friends. The best part of this modular sofa design is that the soft yet durable fabric upholstery goes well with almost all kinds of home interior themes – whether it’s rustic, minimalist or modern.

Modular Sofa Bed Provides Extra Seating And Sleeping Space 

A sofa bed is a type of modular sofa that orchestrates the real spirit of minimalism in living room decor. Gone are the days when sofa beds used to be bulky and uncomfortable. Today, they are purpose-built, more comfortable and super stylish too. Along with aesthetics, a modular sofa cum bed easily enhances the functionality of your space; especially compact living spaces in small apartments. It is a practical addition to your home that conveniently transforms into a warm and cosy bed for your guests and can be folded back into a sofa when not needed for sleeping. We have added some colourful cushions to make this neutral sofa look peppy and help you sleep like a baby on its foam-filled seats.

Modern Modular Sofas Are Perfect For Frequent Movers

If you are often shifting between homes, moving a traditional sofa can become quite an issue because of its huge size. This is where modular furniture sofas come to your advantage. A modular sofa set, like in this image below, which is made up of multiple single-seater sections can easily be moved through narrow spaces and transported to another location.  Use two sections to add a loveseat in your bedroom and the remaining three in the living room. Or combine them all to fit in a living room corner. They can be assembled in a straight line, parallelly or in an L-shape to create any look you want for your living space. Isn’t that interesting?
