Design Your Own Custom Sectional at Bassett Furniture

When it comes to maximizing the comfort and seating capacity of your living room, sectionals present some of the best options in room design. Not only can a sectional sofa fill out a large space, it can also offer the chance to diversify your seating arrangement with several different elements, including a chaise lounge, recliner, an extra chair or an ottoman.

At Bassett Furniture, you'll find a large collection of sectionals to satisfy every taste and style. Our online selection features all types of arrangements, both big and small, that can help to transform your living room into a relaxing oasis of comfort. But, we can't anticipate every family's needs, wants and preferences. 

That's why we are also happy to let you take control and design your very own custom sectional. Take charge from the get-go and pick all the pieces that you want, arranged and styled exactly how you want them.

To get started on your custom sectional sofa, schedule a design consultation appointment with one of our in-house design associates today. 

How to Personalize Your Custom Sectional

There are a number of components that go into a great sectional sofa. Before you get started on designing your own, let's review some of the major steps in the process. 

Choose Your Sectional Pieces

This is probably the most exciting part of the process, as it will have the largest impact on how your new custom sectional looks. There are several standard pieces to consider: 

Loveseat – a standard two-seat sofa that can include an armrest on one or both ends. You can also choose an armless loveseat. 

Sofa (right- or left-facing sectional sofa) – a sectional sofa is most commonly found in a 3-by-3 arrangement (with three seating cushions matched to three back cushions). However, you can extend the length of your sectional and deliver even more seating capacity by adding additional chair seats to the sofa section. 

Armless Chair – an individual seat used in building out the sofa element of a sectional 

Recliner – a seat equipped with either a manual or mechanical reclining option that lifts the legs and allows users to stretch out in a more relaxing horizontal position.

Corner Chair – this element connects the main sofa piece to another part of the sectional. The corner chair (or seating corner) is typically constructed at a 90 degree angle. However, if your sectional is going into a large space, you can increase the angle and create a wide footprint.  

Sofa Bed (right or left arm-facing sleeper) – a fold-out bed that can be incorporated into the main sofa component or the loveseat. 

Chaise Lounge – a great choice to bookend your custom sectional, this extra long seat allows you to relax with your feet up.

Ottoman – a floating seat with no armrests that can serve as a makeshift chaise lounge or a place for a serving tray to hold your drinks and snacks. 

Choose Your Upholstery Options

Once you have chosen the layout of the your custom sectional, you can decide on the type of upholstery you'll want to add. Our upholstery workroom features 800 designer fabrics and 50 leathers of various colors and textures. 

Pick out a few favorites and have the sample swatches delivered to your home. Or, come in to a Bassett Furniture store nearest you to check out all available options in person. 

Choose Your Arm, Cushion and Base Styles

There are a number of arm styles to choose from, and these can have a determinative effect in defining the style of your custom sectional. Track arms, for example, are a great choice for contemporary tastes. Whereas, the English arm is a suitable selection for more traditional styles. 

Cushion and base choices are a bit more straight forward. Back cushions adhere to three predominant options: loose back, semi-attached and tight back. The sectional sofa base comes either with legs or with a fabric skirt.
